Call for Abstracts

Call for Abstracts

We are calling for submissions of short abstracts in support of your Oral or Poster presentation at the Congress. Detailed instructions are available below.


The 2022 Congress aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and medical clinicians from all fields of oncology to exchange and share their experiences and research results with emphasis on tumour markers and their role in diagnosis and therapy.

Relevant new findings in research, diagnosis and clinical Oncology – as well as technical developments, standardization and quality control, will be presented by opinion leaders in Oral and Poster presentations, along with panel discussions and special topic seminars. In addition, as during recent years, the EGTM (European Group of Tumour Markers) will present their Guidelines on optimal use of Tumour Markers and their clinical interpretation.
