The aim of this Congress of is to create an opportunity to share the different points of view of the two societies on Oesophago-Gastric Junctional (EGJ) cancer.
The meeting is planned over three days; each society will have parallel sessions for their specific topics, while a common main hall (Joint-Meeting Hall), dedicated to a plenary session on EGJ cancer has been planned.
All the aspects of EGJ cancer (biology, genetics, pathology, immunology, oncology, surgery, radiation oncology, etc.) will be presented by invited speakers from both societies. In the other two rooms selected topics on esophageal or gastric issues will be discussed.
A dedicated area for posters exhibition is planned in the common spaces throughout the Congress. An Industry exhibition is also being proposed.
In order to promote the meeting among the youngest members of the two societies, on the first day will be played the first “CARDIA CUP”, a trophy for the winner of a football match between the teams of each society.
Every member will be allowed to apply for his team on the congress internet web-site. The coach will be the President of the each society. There will be a professional referee for the match. The Congress Dinner is scheduled on the Friday, November 19th.
