Chair: D. Berthold, CH and B. Tombal, BE
On behalf of ESO and of the Scientific Committee, we have the pleasure of inviting you to attend the Educational Cancer Convention Lugano.
The 2011 edition will be devoted to genito-urinary oncology with a programme developed with special attention the multidisciplinary care of patients with prostate, bladder, renal and testicular cancer. The program should be equally interesting for urologists, radiation and medical oncologists as well as clinicians in training in those specialities. The programme includes state of the art lectures, controversies and gives ample time for discussion of abstracts and clinical cases provided by the participants.
We look forward to welcome you to ECCLU 2011 and to your active participation.

ECCLU has been appraised and approved by the Accreditation Council of Oncology in Europe (ACOE) acknowledging the quality of the scientific programme and its educational value.
ACOE is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide the CME activity for medical specialists. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS). The “Educational Cancer Convention Lugano – ECCLU: What’s New and What’s True in Genito-urinary Oncology” is designated for a maximum of 14 hours of European external CME credits. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity. EACCME credits are recognised by the American Medical Association towards the Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA). To convert EACCME credit to AMA PRA category 1 credit, the participant should contact the AMA.
