Dear friends and colleagues,
It was a great pleasure to welcome all of you in Lyon, and make the EANO 2019 a great meeting increasing our knowledge to take care of patients with brain tumors. More than 750 participants from 50 different countries and from all the continents participated to the 14th EANO meeting. All the specialties were equally represented with a good percentage of nurses. The scientific presentations showed up a large variety of important subjects in the field of neuro-oncology and was the opportunity to listen to high level lectures about immunology, low-grade glioma, omics in neuro-oncology, microenvironment, neurological complications of cancer or brain lymphoma. It was also wonderful to see the involvement of young neuro-oncologists in the EANO meeting and organization. The diversity of age and origin of the participants is really a good sign that EANO annual meetings have become a meeting for everybody and able to attract colleagues from all continents.
The 14th EANO meeting was also the opportunity to discover Lyon, a European city at the crossroads of Europe, listed by UNESCO as a world heritage site with the remains of 20 centuries of History. The participants discovered the high level of gastronomy of the city with its 14 starred restaurants and to the typical and charming bistros called “Bouchons”. The networking evenings have been the opportunity to visit the City Hall and to have a wonderful cruse with a seated dinner on the Rhone and the Saone.
We were very happy when France and Lyon were given the responsibility for EANO 2019, and it has been a real pleasure to interact with all the members of the EANO executive Board and the EANO scientific committee to construct the program and to organize the meeting.
Many thanks for your contribution and I will be very happy to meet you in Glasgow in September 2020.
Jérôme Honnorat, President EANO 2019 Meeting
