Dear Colleagues and Friends of Thermal Medicine,
On behalf of the European Society for Hyperthermic Oncology and of the Hellenic Society of Oncologic Hyperthermia, we are honored to invite you to join us for the 31st annual meeting of the European Society for Hyperthermic Oncology (ESHO 2017), which will be held in Athens-Greece, the “cradle of Democracy”, in June 21 - 23, 2017.
The city of Athens, situated at the foothills of Acropolis and next to the sea, combines uniquely the old and the new. Ancient and brand new at the same time, Athens inspires and seduces its visitors, leaving its mark in their hearts and minds. Characterized by a culture and people that are welcoming and hospitable and easily accessible from every part of the world, Athens is considered to be one of Europe’s safest capitals, easily to navigate with user-friendly transportation system and with numerous museums and archeological sites waiting to be explored.
Right at the foot of the Acropolis we will address all topics of Thermal Medicine, a dynamic and evolving anti-cancer discipline, with several ramifications that extend to other disciplines too.
Well acknowledged and reputable professionals with extensive clinical and scientific experience will be invited to share their experience in the field with us all. Just before the ESHO 2017 Congress, a selected number of participants will have the advantage to join the ESHO School of Hyperthermia, which will offer separate CME credits, apart from all its scientific and recreational benefits.
Several congress sessions have been planned with the clinician in mind, with the explicit intent to show the synergy of hyperthermia with all other anticancer modalities, especially with chemotherapy. Not so long ago Hyperthermia was transformed from a barely reliable cure into a modern, dependable medical discipline; technology was the factor that made the difference. Therefore, special sessions are warranted, to focus on existing and emerging technologies in Thermal Medicine.
We like to think of Thermal Medicine as a scientific concept that extends from cryotherapy to thermal ablation. This concept will be reflected in the program. The President’s symposium will focus in the future of Hyperthermia and the new frontiers that we will encounter.
We look forward to greeting you all in Athens this coming June, and aspire to organize a memorable scientific event for all the parties involved.
