Jan Vandecasteele

Dear colleague,

We invite you to attend the annual Autumn meeting in Dolce La Hulpe / Terhulpen on the 9th of October 2020. The main theme of this edition is "Metastases: From Palliation to curative intent".

In view of the current COVID-19 situation, the BeSTRO board has decided to change the format to a one day hybrid event on Friday 09th of October 2020. You can either choose to attend the meeting in person or through streaming from your (home) office.

The registration deadline has been postponed to the 04th of October 2020 (23:59).

We hope to see you as numerous as possible. Of course, we will do everything to keep it safe.
