3rd St. Gallen International Gastrointestinal Cancer Conference (GICC 2016)

March 10-12, St. Gallen, Switzerland

The St. Gallen International Gastrointestinal Cancer Conference focuses on the primary therapy of potentially curable cancer of the gastrointestinal tract. It is organised by St. Gallen Oncology Conferences (SONK) under the auspices of the EORTC. The 2016 GICC brought together experts from different disciplines (medical, surgical and radiation oncologists, gastroenterologist, radiologists, pathologists and basic scientists) to give in depth presentations on a specific tumour entity. The topics of the 2016 GICC were pancreatic and biliary tract cancers. The main aim of the conference was to foster the understanding between the different disciplines by in depth presentations of the reasoning of each involved discipline in a given clinical situation with ample time for discussion. Therefore the audience of the meeting consisted primarily of members of multidisciplinary teams facing treatment decisions on a daily basis. The highlight of the three-day conference was a consensus session where about 20 specialists discussed their opinion on questions that are not covered by or are controversial in existing guidelines. Results of this consensus conference will be published and can serve as consensus-based guidelines for daily clinical decision making.
