Best of ASTRO Officially Licensed Meetings

ASTRO offers licenses to host the Best of ASTRO meeting in your country!

In an effort to share the most important scientific studies related to radiation oncology throughout the world ASTRO has created a program that allows organizations to license the Best of ASTRO content and hold an “officially licensed” live or virtual meeting in their own country. The Best of ASTRO content represents the top-rated abstracts from the ASTRO Annual Meeting. The abstracts selected for the Best of ASTRO are hand-picked by a selection committee from thousands of abstracts submitted to the Annual Meeting. By holding a Best of ASTRO meeting, you are able to offer your colleagues access to these top abstracts, and foster discussion and networking at a local level.

All applications are due by December 10, 2021. The Best of ASTRO content will be made available in mid-December 2021. All meetings must be planned from January 2, 2022, through June 30, 2022.

Grant of license includes the following:

  • Designated “Best of ASTRO” scientific abstracts from the Annual Meeting and original slides from respective presentations (as released for inclusion by the presenters).
  • Right to select up to 10 additional Annual Meeting abstracts not designated in the Best of ASTRO group (as released for inclusion by the presenters).
  • Annual Meeting Science Highlight sessions by track: Faculty presentations (Discussant) slides.
  • Custom “Best of ASTRO” name and logo for use on marketing materials.
  • “Best of ASTRO” PowerPoint template.
