Event Overview
Welcome message:

Tumors grow in close contact with immune cells, and the crosstalk is complex and context dependent. Researchers are rapidly expanding our knowledge of how cancer can recruit inflammatory cells to support malignant progression and suppress antitumor immunity. We have learned that many immune cell types such as macrophages and T cells can display polarized phenotypes that act in favor of or against cancer and that these states are plastic. The field of cancer immunology is at an exciting place where basic science is having tremendous translational impact and cancer immunotherapy is at the brink of mainstream clinical practice.

In recognition, Cell Press is pleased to announce a symposium focused on inflammation and immunity in cancer. We will bring academic and industry researchers and clinicians together to explore the many facets of cancer immunology and discuss how tumor-associated inflammation can be reprogrammed for therapeutic benefit. We aim to foster discussion on recent findings in basic immunology, cancer-immune cell interaction, and new approaches in cancer immunotherapy.

Sitges is just 35km south of Barcelona in the Catalan region of Spain and enjoys a privileged location between the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains.

Places of Interest

  • The Casa de la Vila, 19th century neo-gothic building, and the Palau Maricel, which bring together medieval, Renaissance and Barroque elements.

  • One of the most traditional dish is the xató, made from endive, cod, tuna, anchovies and olives, and dressed with a romescu sauce (roasted peppers, toasted almonds, garlic, oil and chilli)

Some restaurants linked to "Ruta del Xató" (the 17th year of the event) include special menus with this dish. These restaurants are: BoccalinoCafè Bar RoyEsmarris (Hotel Dolce)Iris Gallery (Hotel Estela)La Concha (Hotel San Sebastián)La Pèrgola (Hotel Antemare)Los VikingosPicnic.  But you'll find the Xató at many others like La Nansa or La Salseta, traditional restaurants well known in Sitges (find out more here)

  • Cuttlefish stew with potatoes and ali-oli (garlic mayonnaise), tuna casserole and fideuá are other delights prepared in Sitges
  • Another well-known dish is "arròs a la Sitgetana" this is a dish based on rice to which some seafood and products from the countryside are added
  • Two of the best restaurants in Sitges for traditional food are is La Nansa and "La Salseta". They belong to Slow-Food movement and to "Restaurants Km0" (quality products from producers that are at less than 100 km).

Find more information about gastronomy and the recepie for Xató and Arròs a la Sitgetana here.


In Sitges there is a traditional bar that is more than 60 years old "El Cable" that prepares "Tapas" and it's the bar that won last year’s prize of  "Best tapa of the year in Catalonia" with the tapa called "Nemo" (and  it has won the "Sitges Tapas contest" for 3 years). It's well worth a visit.


The Sitges wine is "Malvasia de Sitges". In the eighteenth century the Malvasia grape made up ¼ of the crops cultivated in Sitges, although now there are only 2.5 hectares under cultivation. The Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity has included the Malvasia de Sitges in its Ark of Taste list (small-scale quality productions under threat). Find out more here.

Abstracts received before the abstract deadline will be considered for poster presentations and/or a limited number of oral presentations. If your abstract is accepted, it will be included in our online abstract booklet that will be distributed to all conference participants.

Any abstracts submitted after the deadline will be eligible for poster presentations only. Please also note that we can only allow one abstract per presenting author. Abstracts will not be published and authors also reserve the right to publish their work elsewhere.

All abstracts will be reviewed by the organizers to ensure that the topic of the submission is consistent with the scope of the topics covered at the symposium. A small number of abstracts will be selected for short talks by the organizing committee.

A condition of submission is that, if accepted, the poster and/or talk will be presented at the conference by one of the authors.

Successfully submitted abstracts will be acknowledged with an electronic receipt including an abstract reference number, which should be quoted in all correspondence.

If you do not receive acknowledgement for your abstract submission or you wish to make any essential revisions to an abstract already submitted, please do not resubmit your abstract, as this may lead to duplication. Please contact the Conference Content Executive with details of any revisions or queries. Please quote your reference number if you have one.
