ESMO and Imedex announce partnership for the World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer(R)

16.12.2004


The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO)and Imedex, Inc. announced today their collaboration in the promotion of The World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer®, a clinically-focused Congress that has attracted thousands of oncologists and gastroenterologists since its inception in 1999. In a joint statement Paris Kosmidis, MD and President of ESMO, Stefan Terwindt, President of the Congress organizer, Imedex, Inc., Eric Van Cutsem, MD, PhD, and Mario Dicato, MD, Congress co-chairmen, emphasized the benefits of collaboration and dedication to the future success of the Congress.



"The World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer is the most important international meeting on gastrointestinal cancer,” Dicato said, “and the endorsement by such a prominent organization as ESMO will certainly raise the exposure of this event internationally.”

"The endorsement of the World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer fits into the ongoing mission of ESMO to provide medical oncologists around the world with the information, knowledge, and experience that are the backbones of excellence in clinical practice,” said Kosmidis. “The World Congress is leading the way in offering clinically significant information to its growing number of attendees each year. We believe that this Congress plays a significant role in educating and updating medical oncologists working in the field of gastrointestinal cancers and through this collaboration, we can bring a high quality educational experience to a growing network of practicing physicians.”


The World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer (www.worldgicancer.com) is entering its 7th year, with the 2005 meeting scheduled for 15-18 June 2005 in Barcelona, Spain. The Congress provides a forum where specialists in cancer research, leading oncologists and practicing clinicians review the state-of-the-art in gastrointestinal cancer and share the latest information on its multidisciplinary management. A total of 86 countries were represented by 2,250 attendees in 2004.

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
