The Wolfsberg Meetings are structured into four half-day sessions starting on Saturday afternoon and ending on Monday afternoon. After the opening Key Lecture, Session 1 covers presentations on DNA repair mechanisms. Sessions 2 to 4 are dedicated to the relevant topics of intracellular signaling, influence of the microenvironment and Biomarkers and Interventional Strategies in Radiation Oncology. In addition to an opening Invited Lecture presented by a leading international scientist, topic-specific poster sessions with ample time to allow detailed discussions take place. 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 honoured 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.
