Upcoming BNOS satellite meeting

Wednesday 9th September 2020, Glasgow

The European Association of Neuro-oncology (EANO) will be holding their annual meeting in Glasgow 10th – 13th September 2020, and for this reason BNOS will not be holding a three day annual meeting in 2020.

Instead, BNOS is delighted to be collaborating with the organisers of the EANO 2020 meeting, and is planning to hold a satellite meeting on Wednesday 9th September, 11:00 – 16.00.

Further details will be posted here as soon as they are available.  We look forward to welcoming many of our members and non-members to this event.

Our next three day annual meeting will be held in 2021.

BNOS council is delighted to invite interested oncology departments to tender to host the annual conferences in 2021 and 2022. We encourage applications from a team based around a neuro-oncology MDT and comprised of relevant stakeholders including clinicians and allied health professionals.

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.

The recipient of the Young Investigator Award is invited to speak during a dedicated session at the BNOS Conference.  BNOS is grateful to Brain Tumour Research for their generous joint sponsorship of this award.

Prizes are awarded each year at the Conference for best oral presentation, best oral poster, best clinical poster and best scientific poster.

BNOS offers bursaries to cover the subsidised registration rate for non-medical trainees (eg. research PhD students), junior medical PhD students, undergraduate students, nurses, allied health professionals, and young clinicians who do not receive funding from elsewhere to attend the Conference.
