“Excellent meeting for researchers interested in tumour cell-related cell death mechanisms. Very efficient way to become up-to-date. Very good interaction, networking and communication among the participants.”

“Convincing overall conference package: good speakers/talks, very well structured program and good interaction with other participants possible due to small but "relevant" audience. And then... Amsterdam and the conference venue!”

“Well organized, renowned international speakers, fruitful discussions and great atmosphere.”
