The annual conference takes place at various UK locations and runs over three days. This major event ensures that all those working in neuro-oncology in the UK meet to learn, discuss, and impart new findings within a friendly and informal atmosphere. The multidisciplinary role of BNOS is represented by plenary sessions, presentations, discussions, debates, sponsored symposia, meet-the-expert sessions, role-play and posters covering a wide variety of topics which may range from stem cells and in-vitro models to classification and biomarkers, neuro-imaging and neuro-surgical techniques, immuno-oncology, quality of life and indicators of patient performance. The first day is dedicated as the Education Day with its particular emphasis on providing comprehensive scene setting for those earlier in their research or clinical careers. Throughout the entire Conference, presentations are made by renowned international speakers, national thought leaders and by up-and-coming researchers, clinicians and other healthcare professionals, and by a wide variety of others from allied communities, political systems, regulatory institutions, legal sectors etc. Since 2015 presentations have been video-ed. Care is taken to ensure adequate time for informal individual discussion and there is always an enjoyable social programme.
