Event details


Overview

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 

  • signaling pathways contributing to the treatment resistance and disease progression;
  • role of CSCs in the treatment failure;
  • molecular mechanisms associated with CSC aggressiveness and increased metastatic potential;
  • CSC metabolism;
  • circadian rhythms in CSCs and metronomic chemotherapy;
  • crosstalk between CSCs and microenvironmental factors (tumor stroma, immune system);
  • biological, biochemical, pathological methods allowing CSC identification within the malignant tumors;
  • development of novel biomarkers and therapeutic targets to predict and overcome therapy resistance associated with CSC activities;
  • novel therapeutic approaches to combat locally advanced, metastatic or relapsed malignant diseases;
  • chemical agents against CSCs;
  • translational oncology: how to make bridge between basic researchers and clinicians;
  • clinical trials based on pre-clinical findings

Ilze Strumfa

Speaker

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!

Reply from event organizer

Dear Ilze, many-many thanks for your kind words and excellent evaluation of the conference. I also hope to meet you at our conferences in future, and to include your presentations on the new data into the programs of the conferences! Merry Christmas and Happy New 2019 Year!

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.

Thank you very much, Jürgen! Hope to see you at the conference next time!

user picture Speaker

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.

Reply from event organizer

Thank you very much for very useful and fair suggestions! I fully agree with your criticism, and I hope that in future we could avoid some unfavourable events a nd issues! Merry Christmas and Happy New 2019 Year!

All former participants are welcome to attend our future conferences! Kind regards and Merry Christmas, Ira

user picture Speaker

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.

Reply from event organizer

This is an excellent idea! Many thanks for that!

user picture Speaker

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!

Reply from event organizer

thank you very much for your kind words! In any case, we have to work on the conference improvement including the time of the presentations.

user picture Speaker

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

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 , as well as students interested in the cancer research. The conference had a carefully planned program, that took into account the topics of the presentations in each session, and has become a perfect place for international communications and new collaborations. The participants had an excellent opportunity for personal communication and a good relaxation after the conference sessions. The venue of the conference was the Krumers Alpin Resort & Spa in Seefeld, which is one of the most exclusive hotels in Tyrol. Special prices for hotel accommodation were provided for conference attendees. The conference fee was reasonable for most of the participants and covered provided meals – coffee breaks, lunches and dinners. I would strongly encourage cancer researchers and clinicians to attend this meeting in the future. Many thanks to the organizers and personally Prof. Ira Skvortsova for an excellent scientific event!

Great Organized congress. Perfect for interaction with other scientists!!!

user picture Speaker

Excellent meeting!

user picture Speaker

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.

user picture Speaker

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.

user picture Speaker

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!

user picture Speaker

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.

user picture Speaker

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.

user picture Speaker

This conference was definitely worth attending. Extremely well organized and a wonderful mix of great scientists and topics. The venue was fabulous!

user picture Speaker

Excellently organized conference! Beautiful location and very good research presentations. I can only suggest to attend this conference in Austria.

user picture Speaker

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 articular, young scientists in the field, to attend this meeting in the future.

user picture Speaker

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.

user picture Speaker

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.
