The 36th Conference will focus on three areas. The first will be on how to finance, build, and operate successful state-of-the-art screening programs in practice settings around the world. The second will be on optimizing the treatment of Stage 1 lung cancer, through the IELCART Study. The third conference segment will be used to give assessments and updates on related topics.

We are delighted that the LungCentre Hirslanden, Zurich in Switzerland will be hosting this event together with the National Programme for the Early Detection of Lung Cancer®. We look forward to robust participation by our international colleagues.

Mission

The broadest mission of these Conferences is collective pursuit of understanding the issues surrounding early diagnosis and early treatment of lung cancer. Starting with the Early Lung Cancer Action Program (ELCAP), which evolved into the International I-ELCAP, the focus has always been on practice-relevant research. Now that CT screening for lung cancer is being implemented throughout the world, the focus of this conference is on the practice-relevant research needed for further identification and quantification of the findings in screening and on the development of computer-aided assessment based on the I-ELCAP cohort on CT screening and the IELCART cohort on treatment for early stage lung cancer.
