EGCC 2018Dear colleagues and friends,
Gastric Cancer Congress (EGCC) will be held the 7th and 8th
June 2018 in Leiden, The Netherlands.
The European Gastric Cancer Association (EGCA)
was officially founded during the board meeting of the International Gastric
Cancer Association (IGCA) in Beijing 2017 as a European chapter of IGCA. Its
precursor, the European Union Network of Excellence, organised her meetings
since 2006 biannually in Edinburgh, Rome,
Madrid, Cologne, Liverpool and Lisbon.
We would be very happy to welcome you in
2018 in Leiden. We have prepared a multidisciplinary
program that covered all the aspects of the management of gastric cancer. A
faculty of international renewed speakers will address topics like
diagnostic modalities, minimal invasive surgery, multimodality treatment,
pathology, targeted & immune therapy and quality of care. Furthermore the
latest results of some large trials and the EURECCA project will be presented.
Abstracts will be accepted for poster presentations.
The city of Leiden can be reached easily:
only 20 min from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. The congress venue and hotels are on
walking distance from the Leiden railway station.
Beside the for the scientific EGCC program,
visiting Leiden is strongly recommended for her rich history, amazing
canals, exciting museums and a great atmosphere.
On behalf of the organising committee I look forward meeting you all in June in The
