2024 SNO/ASCO CNS Metastases Conference
August 8-10, 2024 


This activity is provided by the Society for Neuro-Oncology.

Target Audience
Neuro-oncologists (both neurology and medical oncology-trained), Medical Oncologists, Neurosurgeons, Neuro-radiologists, Neuropathologists, Neuropsychologists, Radiation Oncologists, Basic and Translational Scientists, Data /AI Scientists, Computational scientists, Basic and Clinical Science Trainees, Allied Health Professionals, Palliative Care/Quality of Life Professionals, Industry Professionals, Drug Developers, Regulatory and Government Officials, Patient Advocates, Clinical research specialists, Clinical research organizations -- all involved in clinical trials and patient care of patients with CNS metastases.

Statement of Need/Program Overview
The SNO/ASCO CNS Metastases Conference — Leveraging Multi-Sector Collaboration to Disrupt CNS Metastases — will be held August 8-10, 2024, at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel in Denver, Colorado.

Jointly sponsored by the Society for Neuro-Oncology and the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the scientific content of this unique event will offer outstanding keynote and plenary addresses on a range of timely topics on the complex and rapidly evolving area of CNS metastases. Topics to be addressed include basic and translational research, as well as a broad range of clinical practice topics including radiation therapy, surgery, chemotherapy, targeted therapy/immunotherapy, multimodality therapy and clinical trials. In addition to lectures from internationally recognized experts, conference participants will have opportunities to present their work -- and to learn about advances made by others -- through short oral presentation and scientific posters selected by the scientific review committee. The theme for this year’s conference is to bring together all the key stakeholders and leverage multi-sector collaborations to disrupt barriers and streamline therapeutic advances for patients with CNS metastases.

As an adjunct to the cutting-edge multidisciplinary science that will be presented, we expect the conference in Denver will provide an outstanding and unparalleled forum for networking and socialization with like-minded colleagues from around the world who are focused on advancing CNS metastases research and patient care, as well as the opportunity to interact with exhibitors from SNO’s industry and non-profit partners.
