2 6 th Annual ENETS Conference for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Neuroendocrine Tumor Disease 5-7 March 2009 Granada Spain Granada Congress & Exhibition Centre Supported by Novartis Pharmaceutical Corporation and Ipsen Beaufour

3 Welcome to Granada The ENETS Executive Committee extends a warm welcome to its 6th Annual Conference in Granada, Spain. In attending this meeting, you join some of the most respected and dynamic researchers and key opinion leaders in the field of neuroendocrine tumor research. Over the next two days, they will be detailing the most relevant and significant advances in the field today. Our aim is to give you beneficial lessons to help you in your daily clinical practice. On behalf of the scientific organizing committee, I welcome you to Granada. The city is a highly appropriate place to hold our conference: its legacy of blended cultures mirrors our Society s mission in fostering international cooperation toward solving the complex clinical problems neuroendocrine tumors present. The Society today claims more than 550 members, hailing from 48 countries this is a proud achievement for a research society dedicated to a rare disease, and one founded only five years ago. Again, I welcome all participants to our annual meeting and appreciate the distances traveled to be here. Our 2008 conference in Paris received very positive reviews and we hope that the Granada meeting will be just as rewarding. In inviting the conference lecturers, we hope to exhibit the Society s work of this past year, including the ENETS Guidelines for the Standards of Care. But we also felt it important to add some new aspects to the program. This would encompass poorly differentiated endocrine carcinomas, novel approaches to NET treatment, and a session on combined therapy and clinical trials. We also have expanded the program to include an additional session for clinical research abstracts. I am exceptionally proud to announce that we received 119 abstracts for the meeting. The growth in NET research, as well as the continued increase in membership registrations and abstract submissions, speaks for itself and our future work in the field. The ENETS Annual Conference this year is sponsored by the pharmaceutical firms Novartis, as platinum sponsor, and Ipsen, as silver sponsor. I would like to take this opportunity to thank both for their continued support for and interest in ENETS. I would also like to thank the companies CISBIO, Covidien, ITG Isotope Technologies Garching and Sirtex, which are exhibiting during the conference. I welcome each of you to Granada and to the ENETS 6th Annual Conference. Guido Rindi, M.D., Ph.D. Parma, Italy Chairman, European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (ENETS) 2
