Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to announce the upcoming Thoracic Oncology Forum (TOF2017), the 5th Annual Scientific Conference of the Saudi Lung Cancer Association (SLCA), which will take place in, Riyadh Marriott Hotel (Makarim Hall), KSA, on 12-13 May 2017.

Thoracic Oncology Forum (TOF) was first conducted in 2012 in conjunction with the GulfThoracic Congress in Dubai. It was founded with the objective of promoting the state of the art knowledge and expertise in the diagnosis and management of thoracic tumors to improve the clinical practice through high caliber scientific meeting, as well as promoting the exchange of knowledge amongst various professionals in the field.

The scientific committee aims is to provide an attractive scientific program with enhanced scientific and clinical sessions to explore the latest developments, medical advances, cutting edge diagnosis and breakthroughs in the management on all aspects of thoracic oncology.

At the TOF2017 a strong faculty of international, regional and local experts will be leading the pre-conference workshops as well as the main program. Abstracts posters and oral presentations will also be adopted during this meeting. In addition, TOF2017 is a platform to share updates, challenges and interesting findings in thoracic oncology.

All board members of the SLCA and TOF2017 Organizing Committee, warmly looking forward to welcoming you and all your colleagues in Riyadh.
