• Short CV (maximum 2 pages) describing recent clinical experience and list of any recent
publications
• Supporting letter from Head of Department/Mentor
• Abstract with proposed presentation of a clinical case relating to one of the main themes of the Masterclass (bone tumours, central nervous system tumours, leukemia, lymphoma, neuroblastoma, rare tumours, soft-tissue sarcoma or Wilms’ tumour)

The abstract should be presented in the form of a grand-round clinical discussion rather than a publication report, and describe:

• Diagnostic considerations
• Treatment
• Outcome (follow-up)
• Up to three questions that the author proposes for discussion by the faculty and participants
