THE CONGRESS > Welcome
The Paediatric Radiation Oncology Society Congress 2013 - Louisville, Kentucky - 8 - 11 May 2013
The 2013 PROS congress will be held in the beautiful city of Louisville, Kentucky. We are expecting the congress to be attended by radiation oncologists involved in treating children with cancer from all over the world as well as resident physicians-in-training, nurses, radiation therapists and dosimetrists. There will be invited guest speakers including pediatric oncologists, surgeons and pathologists.
The aims of the congress are to exchange knowledge and data and promote research and education, and to assist members from developing countries in the selection of appropriate radiation technologies and the proper use of them as well as the necessary training of personnel. Companies involved in the sale of radiation equipment/technology, books and journals, and/or information technology are invited to participate in the exhibition section of the meeting as they will meet many interested attendees from all over the world.
Louisville is a charming and friendly city on the banks of the Ohio River. The city has many acclaimed restaurants, wonderful museums, beautiful parks and the renowned Churchill Downs, site of the Kentucky Derby. The surrounding countryside is simply gorgeous, with horse farms and other attractions as well as the world famous bourbon distilleries. The weather at early May is usually very comfortable and suitable for many outdoor activities.
The meeting will be held at the ornate historic Brown Hotel which is located at the heart of the city where we have negotiated very favorable room rates. We hope that as many of you as possible will choose to stay there in order to promote maximum interaction between the attendees, the faculty, and your executive.
We look forward to seeing you in Louisville.
Shiao Woo, Chair of the Local Host Committee, and Carolyn Freeman, President of PROS.
