Conditions of Participation


Selection of Participants

Applications to participate in the ECCO-AACR-EORTC-ESMO Workshop on Methods in Clinical Cancer Research can only be submitted electronically. Paper submissions will NOT be accepted.

Participation to the Workshop is limited to 80 participants. The Workshop Review Committee will evaluate the applications and base its decision on a number of factors including:

  • Quality and feasibility of the proposed protocol concept and the letters of commitment submitted
  • Individual career path in medical training and competence in clinical cancer research
  • Support of relevant departments and/or institutions to help conduct the clinical trial.

The Workshop Review Committee’s decision is final and whilst feedback about the application process is welcome, the Workshop Review Committee will not enter into any discussions regarding the final decision.
