OVERVIEW
 
Building on the success of the 2011 and 2013 events, this biennial conference encourages the sharing of ideas and results, new collaborations, and offers attendees a state-of-the-art update in the field of pediatric brain tumor research.
 
A Scientific Program Committee has been formed that will create a highly informative and educational program from the accepted abstracts. The program will feature popular and informative plenary sessions and an informal poster session, as well as “Meet the Expert Sunrise Sessions”, at which attendees can catch up with late breaking areas of research and controversies in the field.

Program information to be posted as it becomes available.
 
This meeting is being organized by the Society for Neuro-Oncology with the generous support of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
