New This Year

Science Highlights

Join us as 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.

Poster Viewing Q&A

Don’t miss your opportunity to view posters and visit with authors during the new Poster Q&A sessions. We have scheduled 90-minute time blocks during the day on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday and assigned times per disease site. The poster author will be asked to stand by their poster during the assigned session time (90 minutes) to answer questions.
