The EIS Working Group is responsible for the creation of a well-balanced and comprehensive scientific and educational symposium program. Topics will be selected based on the current issues facing the European oncology community.
EIS Working Group Chair: Mario Dicato, Luxembourg
EIS Working Group Permanent Members: José Baselga, Spain; Dirk Schrijvers, Belgium
Temporary members are chosen among the experts in the selected oncology topic.
The group can also count on the external help of a Local Chair.
