Dear Colleagues:
We invite you to join us for the 2nd Asian Pacific Conference: Perspectives in Lung Cancer. This conference will be held 1-2 August 2008 in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan, and will be especially valuable for medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons and others interested in the management and treatment of patients with thoracic cancer. You will have the opportunity to meet and interact with expert faculty from Asia, Europe, and North America, all of whom touch on the most salient aspects of the etiology, diagnosis and state-of-the-art management of thoracic cancer.

Significant Impact on Clinical Practice

According to a survey taken after the conference in 2006, 94% of respondents have incorporated the latest scientific information into clinical practice and increased their knowledge in screening, diagnosis, and prevention with information learned at this conference. More than half have shared information they learned with a colleague and 100% plan to attend again!

Scientific Agenda
Topics are selected each year from recent developments in the field, current controversies, and complicated cases. The complete scientific agenda is available online at Sessions this year will focus on:

  • Epidemiology and screening
  • Staging and diagnosis
  • Lung cancer research

We hope you will be able to join us for what is sure to be a rewarding and dynamic experience. We look forward to seeing you in Sapporo!
