    ~ INVITATION to WCLC 2015 ~

    Dear Colleagues and Friends,

    The next World Conference On Lung Cancer (WCLC) will take place September 6 – 9, 2015 in Denver, CO, USA. It is a great pleasure for me to invite you to the World Conference and to the “Mile High City” Denver. While much encouragement and progress is going on these days in the lung cancer field, both with screening as well as treatment, the disease is still a huge global health problem. The Conference will address all aspects from tobacco policy/prevention to biology and treatment progress of all stages of lung cancer. Denver is a smart, vibrant city with 300 days of sunshine. From the new History Colorado Center, the always amazing Denver Museum of Nature & Science to the mile-long pedestrian promenade, lined with fine dining, shopping and a lively nightlife – your opportunities are endless in Denver. There is also a world of adventure waiting to be discovered in the Rocky Mountains, just a short drive from Denver.

    Who should attend?

    The 16th World Conference on Lung Cancer will be one of the largest international gatherings of clinicians and scientists in the field of lung cancer and thoracic malignancies. Those interested in all aspects of lung cancer including surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pulmonologists, radiologists, pathologists, epidemiologists, basic research scientists are encouraged to attend this Conference.

    Also, the Conference will continue implementing special sessions for nurses, allied health professional and advocacy members.

    Based on the success of previous Conferences, more than 9,000 delegates from all around the world are expected to attend. We are looking forward to a program covering a wide range of disciplines including more than 300 invited talks and 3,000 scientific abstracts presented in Oral, Mini Oral and Poster Sessions.

    We will continue with the extraordinarily successful Hands-On Training Sessions and the Young Investigator Session to provide young investigators and other physicians in early stages of their career with the opportunity to receive one-on-one guidance from leading international experts.

    We look forward to welcoming you to an inspiring, educational, and enjoyable program.
