Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in our comprehensive practical workshop of diagnosing and managing patients with intracranial gliomas. Our course is aiming at covering all aspects of gliomas, from their genetic analysis and profiling to the most advanced surgical resective techniques and the long-term follow-up and support of these patients. An astonishing multi-national faculty, including leading figures in the field of neuro-oncology constitutes a guarantee that the participants will be able to familiarize themselves with all advanced imaging and surgical techniques, utilized for the most efficient and the safest management of patients with intracranial gliomas. A well-balanced combination of vivid presentations, stimulating debates, highly-didactic video sessions, and practical hands-on will ensure that each participant will be exposed to all diagnostic methodologies, to the most updated

surgical strategies and to the most recent adjuvant treatment protocols. Moreover, the interactive e-poster session will serve as a forum for exchanging bright new ideas regarding basic science, translational, and clinical glioma research.

The event is hosted in Athens, at the Royal Olympic Hotel, situated in the heart of the city center and at walking distance from many important historical sights, such as the new Acropolis Museum, Hadrian’s Gate, the Temple of Zeus and the National Gardens, as well as the main shopping district of the city. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Athens in May 2019 and making this an unforgettable experience for you.
With our warmest regards,
