What is needed (as usual) is 2 Word files (or rich text format .rtf). One describing the case with enough information to make a diagnosis but without giving away the diagnosis. The second is the description of the case with your interpretation, discussion and references. Reduce size of photos to about 500-700 pixels so they do not take up too much space.
Examples of previous ESVCP case sessions (unknown and with diagnosis) may be seen on the website of ESVCP-ECVCP.
You may also look at the two type files used for the previous cases for the ASVCP case sessions as a similar model of how to formulate your case presentations. Send the files to Harold Tvedten (email@example.com
). The deadline is June 1, 2016. But you are welcome and encouraged to contact Harold earlier. The decisions will be made in early June.
The half day case session is always a fun discussion. A great place for the first talk of a resident/PhD student at a major meeting, but also a good chance for “more experienced” clinical pathologists and oncologists to interact with colleagues. Cases need not be the first ever but should have a good "lesson to learn" to share to colleagues attending the meeting or reading pdf files of the accepted cases on the ECVCP website.
Paired presentations where a clinical pathologist and oncologist work through a case together are encouraged, but oncologists and clinical pathologists are also welcome to submit a case themselves without requiring colleagues to be involved. Finally, even if the meeting will have an oncology theme, infections and clinical chemistry are also interesting, so please feel free to send a case of any type.
