Second Conference Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs): Impact on Treatment - 2018 will be devoted to the problem of primary and acquired therapy resistance associated with disease progression and poor clinical outcome in cancer patients. It is planned that pre-clinical and clinical sessions will be included into the program of the conference. The leading basic researchers and clinicians will be invited to provide educational lectures and to serve as chairs of the Symposium Sessions.
This Conference will highlight
A truly inspiring scientific event with high-quality reports, lively discussions, actively involved audience and intense exchange of information between participants representing different countries and generations. I will include some aspects of the discussed concepts of tumour stem cells, dormancy and metastasis in the medical students' curriculum in our University, and am also looking forward to the future scientific collaboration based on the contacts that were established in the conference. Many thanks to the organisers and especially to Professor Ira Ida Skvortsova for the excellent job!
Hi Ira, I have to say that the event was excellently organized and we (together with my wife) were very comfortable. The talks were very educative and intuitive. My only suggestions is that probably we can have a section of translational research to increase the part of clinical applicability. I am looking forward to participating the proximal event.
Ira, it was an excellent event. Thank you so much for putting such a wonderful and stimulating program together. Jürgen
Although some of the keynote speakers were very good, there were also several presentations that were of low quality, which was disappointing. Maybe the selection of talks could be somewhat more critically. For future meetings I would suggest less keynote speakers, but give them a full hour, after dinner for instance. Next, don't let the speakers chair their own session, because this will result in timing problems.. Also, I would suggest to start at the evening of arrival, and skip the saturday morning session, to make it a little shorter. Location and meals were very nice.
This is good place, and may be join next time!!
I liked it as it was. There were quite a few talks on microenvironment. I would suggest to include this topic in the meeting's title, such as Cancer Stem cells and microenvironment, to attract also people working on microenvironment.
It was an excellent meeting! there are two comments on the keynote lecturers and chairing the session: everybody had the conference program, and the chairmen especially if he/she are the keynote lecturers should control the duration of the presentationS. Ira asked everybody to be in time. Ira, the conference was organized perfectly!
Ira, this is a great meeting, I really enjoyed all of three and half days. Let me know if I can be any help in the future meeting. Jinsong
excellent content, perfectly organized conference
would attend again
This was an excellent meeting!
The conference was excellent in learning cancer stem cells and highly organised covered all the topic.
well organized meeting
Excellent meeting with good speakers and plenty opportunities to network
The CSC Conference-2018 was excellently organized; very interesting presentations and keynote lectures. The round table on cancer metastasis and treatment was especially interesting and useful. The venue of the conference is beautiful!
A very good conference for interacting with participants and exchanging ideas.
Very interesting conference!
Useful and interesting event
Really good conference for networking.
Second International Conference "Cancer Stem Cells: Impact on Treatment - 2018" was devoted to a wide range of current problems of cancer research and therapy: from analyzing the molecular mechanisms of regulation of cancer stem cells and tumor niche cells to presenting the clinical outcomes of applying new therapeutic strategies based on cancer stem cells. Researchers and students from fourteen countries took part in the conference. During the meeting the leading basic researchers and clinicians presented lectures on the various aspects of the molecular regulations of cancer stem cell maintenance and actively discussed the results of the anti-cancer trials. A detailed analysis of a wide range of problems in each presentation was useful to scientists and clinicians working in this field ... Show more Show less
Great Organized congress. Perfect for interaction with other scientists!!!
Overall an excellent meeting. The size was perfect in order to create an ideal and interactive environment. The venue was excellent. Amenities and food were outstanding. My only suggestion, chairs with fold out tables to facilitate writing and laptop usage for so many hours.
The selection of abstracts for the oral presentations should be screened more carefully. The chair person for the session needs to be strict with time management even if it's a keynote speaker. Also, having a keynote speaker as a chair for his own talk/session is not the best idea.
Very excellent academic events! We got lot of great interactions and communications as well as future collaborations in plan based on the congress. The speakers are very high level and professional in a multidisciplinary fields from basic research to translational and clinical applications! We highly recommend more CSC focus group to join and get involved!
This was a small but intensely scientific meeting where we all had opportunities to listen to every single talk, interact and exchange ideas and information. It opens up scope of future collaboration. The meeting was organized very well. I certainly recommend my colleagues and students to attend the future meetings.
This was an outstanding conference due to high quality of speakers, and the theme of the conference which is timely and very important. The venue was excellent and the pace of the conference very well organized. All and all this was an impressive conference.
Unfortunately our microscope are not that apt for looking at cells in 3D culture which was what most of the participants on the meeting was looking for there for our business opportunities were not the best. However, I enjoyed the seminars very much and learned some new insight that we will look into implementing in the microscope in the future.
Excellent meeting!!!. I strongly recommend to participate in the next meeting of CSC: Impact on Treatment.
This was an excellent meeting. Science, organization, venue, hotel rooms and foodwere all excellent.
Excellent talks about new concepts. A lot of unpublished data was presented and discussed. Perfect to get in contact with different researchers
Great conference, very interesting topic and lot of interesing talks.
It was a high level of participants and a good organization of the event despite the narrow topic of the conference .
Excellent meeting, beautiful location!
The conference was outstanding from both scientific and organizational point of view. It was a great opportunity for fostering scientific discussion and collaboration. The location was amazing. I would recommend to attend this conference in the future
It was a very nice event, with very high quality speakers
With conference I am very amazing
This conference was definitely worth attending. Extremely well organized and a wonderful mix of great scientists and topics. The venue was fabulous!
Excellently organized conference! Beautiful location and very good research presentations. I can only suggest to attend this conference in Austria.
This is the first time I attend the Cancer Stem Cell Conference organized by Dr. Ira-Ida Skvortsova and ESTRO that took place in Obergurgl, Austria. I must say that this is one of the best CSC conferences I have attended. The meeting venue is beautiful and the conference setup reminds me of Keystone meetings. The presentations and science are excellent with several outstanding talks. The organizers did a fantastic job in arranging all meals for the participants and the food is healthy and delicious. I have organized the international CSC conferences myself and have attended numerous CSC conferences both as the Keynote and a regular presenter and I would rank the Obergurgl meeting among the top. I would strongly encourage scientists who work on CSCs and their clinical impact, in p ... Show more Show less
It was a great meeting in a beautiful location that deserves a larger audience. My only comment is that the balance between overview talks and research talks could be improved.
The meeting has been very well organized, with a lots of interesting and well done talks. The only improvement I can suggest is to shorter the free time in the afternoon, to increase the time for science. It was also very usefull to be together during all the conference days. I can recommend the meeting and I hope I will attend the next one.
I am very happy to evaluate this event. Organization was excellent, weather was very good, meal was also good and healthy. I plan to attend the conference again
Nice location, excellent organization, very interesting presentations and lectures. I'd be happy to participate in the conference again!
