Hosting Chair: F. Cavalli, CH

Over the past twenty-five years or so, this course has become a renowned programme for physicians and scientists with an interest in the diagnosis and treatment of haematological cancers. It typically draws participants from most if not all continents and thus allows for a stimulating truly international gathering of colleagues interested in lymphoma and leukaemia. Oncology or haematology trainees are just as welcome as are experienced colleagues looking for a refresher course.

The international faculty, including ICML key note lecturers, will guide us through the complexity of the biology and the most relevant clinical problems in lymphoma, offering plenary lectures, practice-oriented training through case presentations, workshops in small groups and ample discussion slots. The course is aimed at providing a perfect introduction to the Lugano Conference.

The format of the residential course will furthermore offer opportunities for informal exchange of ideas, views and experience among the participants and with the faculty.

The close co-operation between the ESO Course Chairs and the ICML Committee will assure an optimal co-ordination of the topics between the course and the ICML Congress. As a particular feature the course will include important topics and presentations that benefit from the smaller format emphasizing clinical judgment and individualisation of treatment, thus complementing the presentations typically offered at large and busy conferences.

Attendance to the course will be by registration and will be limited to 80 participants.

We are much looking forward to meeting and working with you. The course which will be held in Lugano at the Hotel De La Paix.

• Learn or reinforce knowledge on modern diagnostic tools in haemato-oncology
• Understand the molecular pathology of lymphoma
• Retain the salient clinical features of important lymphoma entities
• Discuss and weigh evidence favouring particular treatment options in haematological oncology
• Become aware of the most important “open questions” and “unmet needs” in the management of the main
   lymphoma entities.

Being selected to take part in an ESO Masterclass is one of the ESO activities that gives participants eligibility to enrol in ESCO - the College of the European School of Oncology.

A Course also enables ESCO students to earn ESCO credits and therefore access more ESCO benefits. Full and active participation in the Course earns participants 15 ESCO credits.
Visit www.esco.org for information on how to join ESCO.

The ESO course is held in co-operation with the Organising Committee and will precede the 16th ICML (15-19 June 2021, Lugano, Switzerland). The 16th ICML conference will provide the worldwide most important forum for the discussion of all aspects relating to malignant lymphoma.
ICML and the ESO course are two separate events that require registration to one or the other, or both.

The programme is designed for postgraduate medical doctors at any stage of clinical career who are interested in haematological oncology. A mix of experienced clinicians or pathologists etc., and oncology/haematology trainees is welcome. Scientists (PhD) are very welcome too, but they should be advised that the course will emphasise clinical aspects rather than basic biology.
