Dear colleagues,

The “Central European Lung Cancer Conference” will take place for the 19th time in 2020. Its long tradition was established in 1992 in Prague. Since then, the conference has regularly been held in either Prague or one of the following cities: Budapest, Gdansk, Ljubljana, Riga, Vienna and Novi Sad.

We are glad to announce that, due to limitations related to the current COVID-19 epidemic, CELCC 2020 turned into a fully virtual event: speakers will deliver their lectures via webcast remotely or onsite in a live stream studio based in Prague. The lectures will be available „live“ and also for download from the conference website.

We are convinced that the programme provides timely updates on prevention, diagnosis, multimodality treatment, therapy of advanced stages and supportive care of lung cancer. Your presentations on one of the main conference topics are welcome.

You are cordially invited to attend the CELCC 2020. We look forward to meeting you virtually at the end of November !

Yours sincerely,

Luboš Petruželka,    Robert Pirker
