Over the last years, the field of clinical Hyperthermia has become increasingly dynamic. Results of phase II and III studies as well as new findings in basic research have firmly established Hyperthermia as a treatment option in conjunction with standard regimens in the field of oncology. Constantly increasing insight into the molecular principles and clinical applications require more than ever an interdisciplinary and international European exchange of ideas.

It is therefore with great pleasure that I invite you to the 28th Annual Meeting of ESHO which will take place in Munich from June 19 to June 22.

The conference will be held on campus of the “Klinikum Grosshadern”, one of Europe’s largest university hospitals. The Clinical Cooperation Group “Hyperthermia in Tumor Therapy” in Munich founded in 1986 and supported by the Ludwig-Maximilian-University (LMU) as well as the Helmholtz Zentrum München (German Research Center for Environmental Health) is one of the best established research and treatment units for Hyperthermia in Germany.

The scientific program of ESHO will cover the major clinical, physical and biological developments within the broad field of Hyperthermia including also HiFU, HIPEC and other modalities. The different topics will be presented in the form of keynote lectures, symposia, workshops and as poster presentations.

Being a vital and exciting city, Munich can certainly make your stay very pleasant. From the alpine mountains to the 922-acre English Garden and traditional Bavarian festivities – you will find something to please your taste. Please spare some of your time to enjoy the many resources that this city offers to the visitor.

I am looking forward to seeing you in Munich in June. I am expecting interesting scientific presentations and animated discussions and therefore I am warmly welcome you to Munich!
