This symposium brings together physician specialists and practicing clinicians to discuss the evolving management of thoracic cancers with the goal of providing the most up-to-date knowledge to clinicians that will enable them to confidently prescribe the optimal care for their thoracic cancer patients now and in the future. State of the art educational lectures on the multidisciplinary approach for screening, early detection and treatment of thoracic malignancieswill be given. New features of the educational lecture series is the integration of challenging clinical cases and two multidisciplinary tumor boards. The scientific program consisting of oral and poster abstract presentations is sure to provide stimulating information on the latest developments in clinical and translational research. A prestigious teaching faculty has been assembled to promote dialogue, provide multidisciplinary viewpoints and interact with participants during this two-and-a-half day symposium.

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!

Scientific Content Up to Date
Submission Info

Abstracts will be scored by blind peer review based on the following criteria:

  • Does the abstract address an important and novel question?
  • Does the study design permit the question to be answered?
  • Are the endpoints of the study clearly defined?
  • Is there an appropriate use of statistics?
  • Are the methods described in sufficient detail?
  • Are the conclusions supported by the data?
  • Has the research been accepted for presentation at another medical meeting? 

Specific questions for prospective Clinical Trials:

  • What was the scientific hypothesis and primary endpoint?
  • What was the eligibility criteria and study patient characteristics?
  • What statistical model and assumptions were used?
  • What was the toxicity assessment?
  • What were the limitations?
  • Was there a rationale, either clinical or laboratory, underlying the study design?
  • Is it either promising enough to pursue or negative enough (for a rational therapy) that presentation would prevent other investigators from wasting efforts?

Specific questions for retrospective reviews:

  • Is the group of patients reasonably homogenous?
  • Have attempts been made to account for biases inherent in retrospective reviews?
