The Wolfsberg Meetings are structured into four half-day sessions starting on Saturday afternoon and ending on Monday afternoon. Session 1 covers lectures on DNA repair mechanisms and also highlights the recipient of the internationally renowned ESTRO-VARIAN-Juliana Denekamp Award. Sessions 2 to 4 are dedicated to the relevant topics of intracellular signaling, influence of the microenvironment and novel therapies and biomarkers for new developments in molecular targeting. In addition to an opening Keynote Lecture, each of these individual sessions is introduced by Invited Lectures presented by leading international scientists. These lectures are followed by topic-specific poster sessions for which ample time is reserved to allow detailed discussions in front of the posters. After the poster sessions, selected proffered paper presentations will cover the broad spectrum of scientific approaches of each session. Abstracts of all presentations will be published in the Proceedings Book Molecular Radiation Biology/Oncology. Moreover, selected invited lectures as well as proffered papers and poster presentations recommended by the Scientific Committee will be published as review or original articles in the journal “Radiotherapy & Oncology” after regular peer-reviewing.

The spirit and scientific quality of this meeting very much depends on the quality of the poster sessions and the intensive discussions in front of the posters. Therefore, in each of the 4 scientific topics, the best presented poster will be honored by the WOLFSBERG POSTER AWARD. Moreover and in order to highlight the work of young scientists, the scientifically most outstanding poster of a young scientist, i.e. PhD student or early postdoc, will receive the ADRIAN C. BEGG AWARD established in 2015 and sponsored by Xstrahl Ltd., UK.
