2010 SNO Meeting Welcome Letter
The Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) is pleased to announce that the 15th Annual SNO Scientific Meeting will take place at the Le Centre Sheraton, Montreal, on November 18-21, 2010.
The Annual SNO Scientific Meeting continues to attract a growing number of both investigators and practitioners and it is the premier venue at which exciting new ideas and results can be shared, new collaborations can be established, and new friendships can be formed. To continue to make this meeting a valuable experience for all attendees, the SNO Board of Directors and the Scientific Planning Committee have been working to develop an integrated program that promises to be of interest to basic scientists, applied researchers, clinical investigators and full-time practitioners.
The program will feature popular and informative plenary sessions and informal poster sessions, as well as an Education Day, at which attendees can catch up with breaking areas of research and controversies in the field. Our Education day will focus on basic, translational and clinical aspects of angiogenesis in brain tumors. Once again, abstracts for the meeting can be submitted electronically on-line through the SNO website, www.soc-neuro-onc.org.
As this conference will mark the milestone of SNO’s 15th meeting, we are planning a number of special events to acknowledge those who have contributed to SNO’s evolution. In addition, the meeting will also feature the inaugural Victor Levin Award and Lecture in Neuro-Oncology Research, named after SNO’s founder.
The upcoming meeting in Montreal promises to be an exciting event, and on behalf of SNO I encourage you to submit your work and join us for what will be an educational and valuable experience.

Chair, Scientific Program Committee
