    Best of ASTRO Officially Licensed Meetings

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

    The 2016 application deadline has now passed, please email boa@astro.org for additional information.

    In an effort to spread the most important science 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 meeting in their own country. The Best of ASTRO meeting represents the top-rated abstracts from the ASTRO Annual Meeting. The abstracts selected for the Best of ASTRO meeting are hand-picked by a selection committee from thousands of abstracts submitted for the Annual Meeting. The Best of ASTRO meeting allows attendees to hear these top abstracts presented in a very practical and useful way from various leaders in the field of radiation oncology.

    The licensing program officially launched with the 2015 Best of ASTRO meeting.

    The Best of ASTRO Licensing package consists of 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). 
    • Use of Best of ASTRO faculty presentation slides (as released for inclusion by the presenters).
    • Use of “Best of ASTRO” name and logo. 
    • Use of “Best of ASTRO” PowerPoint template. 
    • Use of licensing statement on meeting materials (“This ‘Best of ASTRO’ program is officially licensed by ASTRO”). 
    • Event listed on ASTRO’s official Best of ASTRO licensed meetings page. 

    For questions, or for more information, email the Education Department.
