Purpose of the Conference

•The meeting aims at developing a full review of current scientific developments in the field of cervical cancer control, highlighting recent medical advances made and exchanging information on early detection, new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and prevention strategies including screening and HPV vaccination.

The conference takes place at a crucial time where clinicians are called upon to integrate HPV screening and prophylactic vaccines into clinical practice.

The purpose of the conference is not only to highlight new developments, but also to widen the discussion beyond the purely medical aspects and to address public education issues.

Main Objectives of Sessions

  • A review of recent developments in HPV infection and cervical cancer prevention and control.
  • Integrate the use of HPV prophylactic vaccines into clinical practice.
  • Advising patients about the potential and limitations of HPV prophylactic vaccines.
  • Understanding the impact of HPV prophylactic vaccines
  • Implementation of guidelines for cervical disease; screening and management of cervical abnormalities.
  • Apply HPV DNA testing to clinical practice in a rational and cost-effective way.
  • Evaluate different tools and techniques available in the field of HPV infection diagnosis and adapt the most appropriate strategies for patients.
  • Anticipate trends in biomarkers and genotyping for diagnosis and prevention.
  • Compare worldwide experience in the field of screening and prevention of cervical disease, including developed and developing countries.
  • Apply skills to enable the improvement, expansion, and use of scientific data for decision making
  • Determine the public health role of physicians in cervical cancer control: prevention through training, early detection, treatment and quality of life.
  • Identify existing strategies and explore innovative community interventions for cervical cancer screening outreach and public education.

Program Structure

The EUROGIN 2010 meeting will comprise the following types of sessions:  

  1. Training Course
    The training course is designed to provide the most updated educational strategies and experience on HPV infection and associated disease. The topics covered range from the fundamentals to emerging issues and the clinical use of prophylactic HPV vaccines.

  2. Plenary Sessions
    These include lectures giving a broad overview of the essential issues of cervical cancer prevention by the most prominent experts in their respective field.

  3. Scientific Sessions
    These concurrent sessions feature presentations of selected abstracts on new data covering a broad range of topics related to genital cancer prevention and management of patients with HPV associated diseases.

  4. Clinical Sessions
    Scientific sessions focusing on clinical aspects of HPV related diseases, decision making and follow-up. These sessions will include the presentation of case studies.

  5. Debate Time
    Based on feedback from previous meetings, the idea consists of including more time for debate on controversial topics. This could be organized either as separate sessions (debate sessions) be included in plenary and scientific sessions.

  6. Free Communications
    The organizing committee welcomes the presentation of proferred papers, with preference being given to original papers on unpublished data. Abstracts presented must comply with the conditions which will be set out in the "Abstract Submission Conditions" which will soon be posted on the EUROGIN website. The abstract submission deadline is September 15, 2009. Submitted papers will be reviewed by the scientific committee.

  7. Poster Presentations
    Selected submitted papers will be on displayed as posters to be viewed by all congress delegates.

Satellite Symposia
Symposia will be organized by partner companies to offer additional information on recent scientific findings and their impact on clinical practice.
