    New for 2017, we are introducing Science Highlight Sessions. These 30-minute sessions will be held each morning, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and will provide a brief overview of the top science being presented at the meeting in the most commonly treated disease sites in radiation oncology. An expert discussant will present the top four to five abstracts at the meeting in a “best-of” format, allowing attendees to hear about the top science in GU, Lung, Head and Neck, CNS, GI and Breast cancer. After attending a science highlight session attendees will be able to hear the full abstract presentation by the author either on-site, if it has not already been presented, or on the Virtual Meeting.
