Dear colleagues and guests:
The Asian Society of Neuro-Oncology (ASNO) is a multi-disciplinary organization dedicated to promoting advances in Neuro-oncology through research and education. Every winter, over 400 neurosurgeons and medical professionals from 10 member-countries gather, and together with invited guests from around the globe, we share our knowledge and experience, engage in spirited discussion to refine our ideas, and enjoy the hospitality of friends. This year, ASNO 2019, the 16th annual meeting of the Asian Society for Neuro-oncology, will be held from September 27 to 29, 2019 in Taipei, Taiwan. We eagerly await esteemed members’ productive participation.
The Asian Society of Neuro-Oncology (ASNO) invites neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, and researchers from around the world to submit abstracts for presentation at our 2019 annual meeting in Taipei, Taiwan. The theme is ‘Advances in Neuro-oncology and Clinical Treatments’. The meeting will feature talks from invited speakers as well as talks selected from submitted abstracts, a poster session, and also activities to promote discussion and interaction between the participants. The topics will include brain tumor, spinal tumor, medical neuro-oncology, nursing research in neuro-oncology, and socioeconomic impact of CNS tumors. Abstracts will be peer reviewed. Acceptance will be based on content, available space, and overall program balance.
Furthermore, to improve the academic level of ASNO 2019 and to rapidly distribute the most updated researches, the ASNO 2019 organizing committee will work with Journal of Neuro-oncology (JNO) to enhance the visibility of Asian academic works. The ASNO 2019 organizing committee and JNO will jointly select 12 to 15 articles from the submitted abstracts, and publish them in a JNO special issue after completion of manuscript submission and peer review. The JNO will offer an Outstanding Paper Award for the best original paper published in this issue. This project is supported by Jason P. Sheehan, who is chief editor of JNO.
It is our aim that this supplementary issue will be published in the spring of 2020. This issue will cover not only the most advanced surgical techniques but also the radiation oncology, medical oncology, laboratory science studies in the neuro-oncology field. Most importantly, this will be an issue rich in Asian-specific neuro-oncological problems and treatment strategy uniquely suited for Asian races.
We announce this news to our members with great joy and eagerly await your participation.
