Both institutions are bringing their experts and expertise, along with many other relevant specialists in this multifaceted and complex field of oncological patient care, to the conference.

Theme and Congress Programme

The Congress programme focuses on the three substantial challenges that currently preoccupy cancer medicine: enhancing interdisciplinarity, rapid integration and financing of innovations, and increasing individualization of therapy decisions after molecular-genetic diagnostics. All this demands „Intelligente Konzepte in der Onkologie (iKon)“ –  Intelligent Concepts in Oncology – which is the theme for this year’s congress.
