Dear Colleague, dear Friend,
The Italian Association of Neuro-Oncology (AINO) is honoured to host the 11th EANO 2014 meeting in Turin, and invites you to join this outstanding event for neurooncology in Europe and worldwide. Over the last two decades there has been an explosive growth of knowledge and interest in neuro-oncology. Nowadays the proper management of neuro-oncological patients requires specific experience and training. The EANO is a multidisciplinary and multiprofessional society aiming to provide science, standards of care, education, and communication. In this regard, EANO 2014 will give the opportunity to share the most up-to-date advances in basic science, translational and clinical research. All fields of neuro-oncology will be covered, such as biology and pathology, imaging, surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapies, supportive/palliative care and quality of life.
Turin is an attractive city located in Northern Italy between the Alps and the Mediterranean sea. Turin was the first Italian capital between 1861 and 1865 and its historical importance is shown by many architectural masterpieces, like the Mole Antonelliana, which is the hallmark of the city and the Reggia di Venaria, a Royal Residency. Moreover, the Egyptian Museum is the second most important in the world.
From the beginning of the 20th century, Turin became a strong industrial centre. The Lingotto building is an example of the industrial transformation of the city. In the last years, Turin changed once again its attitude and mood, hosting the 2006 Winter Olympics Games and becoming a more international and welcoming city.
We look forward to welcoming you in Turin in 2014.
