Dear Friends and Colleagues,
we proudly and cordially invite you to the upcoming “4th International Symposium on Childhood, Adolescent and Young Adult Hodgkin Lymphoma” to be held May 13-16, 2020 in Berlin, Germany. This important symposium has now almost become a tradition for scientists, clinicians, pharmacists, clinical trial staff, and all people who are involved in the science, diagnosis, and treatment of young people with Hodgkin lymphoma. For latest news about this major event and important information, please visit our website www.cayahl-2020.org.
We are putting together, in collaboration with our fantastic Scientific Committee, a high quality program with renowned international speakers and experts in the field of Hodgkin lymphoma. We will have two and a half days dedicated to ten main Session Topics, who are all open for abstract submission. Instead of early morning Meet-the-expert sessions, we will have interactive case discussions as an opener of most session topics. High-level poster presentations will have the opportunity to advertise their poster via poster pitches in the respective main sessions. One of the highlights will be the awarding of the Günther-Schellong-Price, which will be conferred for the third time. The Scientific Symposium will close with the Abstract Award Session. The venue of this exciting symposium will be the Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus, which is located in the “heart“ of the old Charité University Medical Center in Berlin, and which you already know from the 2nd ISCAYAHL in 2014.
For the first time, we will have a Patients` Day, which will be held right after the Symposium on Saturday afternoon, May 16, 2020. More information is to come very soon!
It is our utmost pleasure to serve again with a major symposium for this great global network for advancing the science and development of standards of care for children, adolescents and young adults with Hodgkin lymphoma. We may now say after more than eight years of collaboration, that this network is well established. We are naturally very eager to keep it growing and blooming with your help disseminating this invitation throughout the global context! Therefore, your attendance at the symposium, will contribute for this network to continue, and you will have the chance to experience the spirit and the action that this great collaboration enables in providing long-lasting cures for all children, adolescents and young adults with Hodgkin lymphoma.
With our best wishes,
