A Message from the Organizing Committee
"Ciad Mille Failte!" On behalf of the local organizing committee I would like to extend to you "A hundred thousand welcomes", a traditional Gaelic greeting, and to thank you for attending the 16th Biennial Canadian Neuro-Oncology Meeting in Halifax, Nova Scotia, June 12-14, 2014.
We hope you will find this year's meeting both informative and thought provoking, with a mix of educational sessions by world leading experts, and research abstracts covering all aspects from basic science to clinical care.
In keeping with the rich cultural heritage of the region, our meeting venue at Pier 21 offers a glimpse into the past, where many newcomers to the country first arrived. We hope you will enjoy this refurbished facility on the Halifax waterfront, which is in close proximity to our conference hotel and many shops and restaurants.
After the meeting please consider staying on to explore more of Nova Scotia - be it to see the pounding surf at Peggy's Cove, experience the UNESCO World Heritage town of Lunenburg ( homeÂ port of the Bluenose II ) or take in some of the highest tides in the world on the Bay of Fundy. Perhaps go further afield to Cape Breton and drive around the scenic Cabot Trail.
