SNO Special Interest Tracks

SNO’s special interest Tracks serve to support the Society’s educational and scientific efforts by providing an additional layer of subject matter expertise in the planning of our conferences and events. Specifically, Track chairs are tasked with the following:
  • Submitting concepts for educational sessions to be considered by the Scientific Chairs for invited sessions at the Annual Meeting.
  • Providing content for the Neuro-Oncology Academy.
  • Serving as a subject matter expert resource for the SNO awards committee, scientific planning committee, and officers.
  • Reviewing graded abstracts and shaping one or more concurrent sessions for the annual meeting.
