GUIDELINES AND ABSTRACT SUBMISSION

WELCOME TO CCOLD 2023

Please join us for the 13th Annual Canadian Conference on Lymphoproliferative Disorders (CCOLD) taking place as a hybrid conference in Banff, Alberta on March 24 to 26, 2023.

CCOLD provides a unique opportunity for attendees to interact with international experts in the field of hematologic malignancies. The scope of this meeting will highlight both recent research findings elucidating the pathophysiology of these diverse diseases, as well as changes in therapeutic advances that have had a large impact in the management of our patients. As in previous meetings the format will be didactic presentations as well as case based panel discussions.  There will be opportunity for audience participation via keypad polling devices with the entire faculty featured during the panel discussions.

Internationally known researchers in Lymphoproliferative Disorders will provide keynote lectures and their perspectives on optimal management.

We will continue to support the “Young Investigators Research Awards Program” which has been very successful in providing educational and research support to trainees interested in Lymphoproliferative Disorders. Posters outlining their research will be focused at a special reception Saturday afternoon.

We look forward to seeing you at this educational event!
