EACR-ESMO Joint Conference on Liquid Biopsies

Bergamo, Italy : 15 - 17 May 2019

Networking Opportunities

At the EACR, we know that conferences are about more than just hearing the latest research. Our events are well-known for providing excellent opportunities for networking, interaction and discussion. Here are a few of the features you can look forward to at Liquid Biopsies 2019:

Networking Reception

Wednesday 15 May, 17:25-18:00

A complimentary buffet dinner will be served for all participants and exhibitors to enjoy on Wednesday evening. Why not take the opportunity to make new connections in an informal setting! The trade exhibition will be open at this time, and Poster Discussion Session 1 will follow at 18:00.

Panel Discussion

"How do we move liquid biopsies from a research tool to part of routine decision making?"

Thursday 16 May, 17:30-18:15

Chaired by Sarah-Jane Dawson, the panel of invited speakers will tackle this important question. Participants are invited to ask questions and contribute to the conversation.

Poster Discussion Sessions

Wednesday 15 May, 18:00-19:30 Posters #1-53 will be presented.
Thursday 16 May, 13:00-14:30 Posters #54-106 will be presented.

There are two dedicated 90-minute Poster Discussion Sessions in the programme. At these times, the presenters for that session should stand by their posters to discuss their work with other participants and invited speakers. As well as the dedicated sessions, there are also additional poster viewing opportunities at the beginning of each day when posters can be freely browsed.

Conference Dinner

Thursday 16 May, 19:00

The Conference Dinner will take place on the final night of the meeting at the atmospheric Ristorante Taverna Valtellinese, a short walk from the conference venue. It will be an excellent opportunity for participants and speakers to get to know each other in a relaxed and informal environment. A four course meal will be served, with wine (or alternative) and coffee included in the ticket price.

Tickets for the conference dinner are not included in the registration fee and can be purchased on the registration page as an optional extra for €48.80.

Directions from the conference venue

It takes less than 10 minutes to walk from the conference venue to the dinner venue. Head north-west on Viale Papa Giovanni XXIII, turn left onto Largo Porta Nuova which becomes Via G. Tiraboschi. The entrance to the Taverna is just down the side street called Passeggiata Zeduri.

"The intimate setting stimulated active discussions and promoted setting up collaborations between researchers. I would highly recommend to colleagues!"
