Message from Stephen Hunger, MD, Scientific Committee Chair
Abstract submission is now open for the 50th SIOP Congress, which will take place in Kyoto, Japan November 16-19, 2018. Unlike recent years, there will be NO extension after the abstract deadline so please have all abstracts finalized by the deadline: April 10, 2018.
This will be a particularly special Congress to celebrate the 50th anniversary. Past SIOP President Giorgio Perilongo will present a Keynote Address on the History of SIOP and another Keynote on Autophagy will be presented by Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi, the recipient of the 2016 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
The Local Organizing Committee, Chaired by Dr. Akira Nakagawara, has prepared an exciting Educational Day on November 16 and a wonderful social program.
We look forward to seeing you in Kyoto!
Stephen Hunger, MD
Chair, Scientific Committee
