In About Barcelona we have information of things that are happening in the city, events, fairs, congresses, or popular events that will take place together with Festivals and Concerts, Sporting Events and Art Exhibitions. Also information on interesting places to vist and what we like to call our favourite places, museums and outdoor sculptures. And if you are interested, we can provide your Barcelona Accommodation for your stay during the events, congresses or Festivals you are willing to participate.
We hope that our Barcelona apartments will suit your needs during your visit to the city.
The European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology, ESTRO, has established an international reputation for organising different events through the year covering all aspects of radiation oncology and the multidisciplinary treatment of cancer.
ESTRO 29, which will be held from 12th to 16th September 2010 in the city of Barcelona, Spain.
Major improvements in radiation oncology, radiation physics, radiation biology and technology have contributed to increase the cure rates and also the quality of life of the patients and to establish our specialty at the forefront of modern multimodal oncology. Recently, radiation oncology has been very successful in exploring new horizons, focusing on the development of innovative high precision technologies for imaging cancer patients during the course of their treatment and improving permanently the precision in treatment delivery. Lately we have succeeded in exploring how these advances will change clinical oncology. New areas of research will continue to shape our future, including the identification of new molecular pathways involved in radiation response, molecularly targeted radiation oncology and the coming revolution of oncology imaging. Furthermore, proton and ion beam therapy are becoming more widely available and will certainly have an impact on the future of radiation oncology.
On Sunday 12 there will four pre-Conference Courses dedicated to Functional Imaging in Treatment Planning - Existing Standards and Future Developments, Adaptive Radiotherapy, Contribution of Tumor Microenvironment to Radiation Responses and Patient Safety in Radiation Oncology.
Through the Meeting it will be given the Estro ~ Varian Award to a radiotherapy professional for research in the field of radiobiology, radiation physics, clinical radiotherapy or radiation technology, The Estro-Accuray Award to a radiotherapy professional for research in the field of “High Precision Radiotherapy” and The Estro – Jack Fowler University of Wisconsin Award 2010 for the best abstract in the field of radiation physics or radiation technology, submitted for ESTRO 29.
The ESTRO 29 will take place at the Centre de Convencions Internacional de Barcelona in the Diagonal Mar/Forum Neighborhood of Barcelona.
