   *IDIBELL Cancer Conference ( ICC ) on Metastasis and Angiogenesis *,
   Barcelona, May 26-27 2011.

   The ICC on Metastasis and Angiogenesis is co-organized by Dr Manel
   Esteller (Cancer Epigenetics and Biology Program ( PEBC ), IDIBELL ,
   Barcelona, Spain), Oriol Casanovas (Institut Català d’Oncologia ( ICO
   ), IDIBELL ), Francesc Viñals Canals (Universitat de Barcelona, ICO ,
   IDIBELL ) and Danny R. Welch (University of Alabama, Birmingham AL,
   USA ). The sessions will take place at the Hesperia Tower Hotel
   (L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Barcelona, Spain), will last for 2 days
   (May 26-27, 2011) and will host a total of 20 plenary conferences
   given by the most recognized international experts in the field (see
   attached Poster) and poster/oral presentations that will be selected
   among conference applicants.

   The main objective of the ICC on Metastasis and Angiogenesis is to
   highlight the latest advances in the biological mechanisms and the
   natural history of metastasis and angiogenesis in tumorigenesis and to
   provide an opportunity for the best scientific experts in these fields
   of research to meet and exchange scientific views and knowledge. At a
   more general level, we wish it to be a means of contact between the
   members of the scientific world as well as a chance for scientists who
   are starting their career to have access to the latest discoveries
   made in the Metastasis and Angiogenesis fields. This conference is
   thus open to the whole international scientific community, and more
   concretely to scientists who are developing their research in the
   field of Metastasis and Angiogenesis.

   Please be so kind to find attached the Poster of the ICC on Metastasis
   and Angiogenesis.

   For any further information please, visit our PEBC web page ( ), and the ICC web page (
