Clinical Practice and Implementation of Image-guided Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy is organized by European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) and will be held from Sep 01 - 05, 2019 at Convitto Della Calza, Florence, Firenze, Italy. Target Audience: The course is aimed at all professionals in the field of radiation oncology, who are involved in the clinical practice of SBRT and cranial SRS at any point in the treatment chain: radiation oncologists, physicists and radiation therapists (RTTs) with a dedicated focus on SBRT and SRS. The course targets individuals who are currently at the planning stage of establishing a clinical stereotactic programme, and also those who already have a current stereotactic practice. The importance of integrating all professionals into a team will be highlighted. Prerequisites: Before commencing this course participant should: • Know the basics of image-guided radiotherapy • Have experience and knowledge of advanced radiotherapy treatment planning • Have a basic understanding of radiobiological modelling. Course Content: • The five day teaching course will be organised as follows: • On Sunday, a historical background of stereotactic radiotherapy will be given followed by the radiobiological and technological background; SBRT cases with different complexity will be demonstrated followed by a debate discussing the position of SBRT in the current developments in oncology • The teaching lectures on Monday will review and discuss the technology and physical practice of SBRT and SRS • On Tuesday, various clinical aspects will be discussed, and SBRT for early stage NSCLC, primary liver cancer, prostate cancer and pancreatic cancer will be reviewed • All teaching lectures will focus on the multi-disciplinary character of SBRT. Interaction and discussion between the professional groups is highly encouraged • Split-up sessions based on expertise in SBRT and based on the profession will be organised on Tuesday and Wednesday, offering the opportunity of in depth practical discussions • The last day will focus on the establishment of a clinical stereotactic programme and close with a panel discussion. This course aims to: • Inform about the historical background and development of cranial radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic- body radiotherapy (SBRT) • Illustrate the radiobiological consequences of hypo-fractionated, inhomogeneous dose distributions. • Discuss the practice of frame-less image-guided versus frame-based stereotactic cranial radiosurgery. • Identify potential sources of uncertainties in the work-flow of SBRT: imaging, target delineation, motion compensation, treatment planning, treatment delivery and treatment evaluation • Offer an overview of available treatment planning and delivery technologies and how to integrate these in clinical practice of SBRT •Compare available technologies and help define applicability for particular use • Give an evidence-based review on potential indications for SBRT: early stage NSCLC, primary and secondary liver metastases, prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer, vertebral metastases, oligometastases, re-irradiation • Give an overview of normal-tissue toxicity, tolerability and radiological changes in SBRT • Teach how to establish and implement a safe and clinical programme for SBRT. Objectives: By the end of this course participants should be able to: • Build a team to implement and practice SRS, SRT and SBRT • Understand the technical and physical requirements for SRS, SRT and SBRT • Know the clinical rationale of SRS, SRT and SBRT and their limitations • Understand the radiobiological basis of very high fraction doses • Know the details of indication, practice and outcome of SBRT for early stage NSCLC • Know the current clinical evidence for SRS, SRT and SBRT in the various clinical indication.

Single Cell Biology: Pushing New Frontiers in the Life Sciences (F1) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from May 04 - 08, 2020 at Florence Fair - Palazzo dei Congressi, Florence, Firenze, Italy. Description Life has evolved profound heterogeneity of cells within a tissue, and the function of a tissue or organ can only be understood by understanding how these cells interact. Diseases often arise within a subset of cells within a tissue, or have different consequences in different cells. Thus, it is key to capture and interpret cellular heterogeneity. Recent technology advances are beginning to make multiplexed molecular analysis of millions of individual cells a reality. An emerging challenge is to connect these very rapidly evolving technical advances and “Big Data” to molecular mechanisms so that an understanding of cellular heterogeneity in health and disease (beyond description) emerges. The overall goal of the conference is to connect and synergize the “technical advance” community and the broader biology/medical community. Specifically, • To expose participants to cutting-edge techniques in single cell analysis and • To provide a forum for researchers to share their work with colleagues and facilitate development of mutually beneficial collaborations. Several aspects of our proposed conference make it unique and of significant interest. One such aspect is our broader focus beyond the transcriptome of dissociated single cells as is common. Our proposal encompasses analysis of the epigenome, proteome, lipidome and metabolome of single cells in a dissociated state and, more importantly, in situ, preserving crucial spatial information. Additionally, our proposed conference uniquely has a focus on application of single cell analysis directly to diseases to understand mechanisms and discover potential therapeutic treatments.
