Our yearly symposium will take place physically again, scheduled at Friday 9 December 2022, save the date!!  You can find the program of this meeting dedicated to the multidisciplinary care of low-grade gliomas on the right. We would be very pleased to have you and meet in person!

Annual symposium registration – CLOSED for 2023

Registration for the meeting is required. Registration is free of charge for members and open to everyone interested in the topic of low-grade gliomas. An accredidation for FANC and RIZIV/INAMI will be requested. We strongly encourage non-members to join us as well, and to become active members.

BANO prize

BANO would like to continue to support young Belgian researchers in the field of neuro-oncology. Therefore, two Young Investigator’s prizes will again be awarded during Annual Symposium 2022. Any neuro-oncology researcher (pre-clinical, translational, or clinical) who works in a Belgian center, is younger than 38 and a member of BANO can apply. Ongoing or recently completed projects can qualify. The application consists of a 1-page CV and project description of max. 3 pages.

Case of the year

In addition, a new type of prize will be granted this year for the best presentation of “Case of the year”. The board will pre-select a subset of 3 most unique and educational neuro-oncological cases from all submissions, to be presented at the annual meeting. There will then be a vote at the conference to pick the winner of the prize. The application consists of an abstract of 250 words describing the case (intro – case – conclusion), with one author.

Please send your applications for the BANO prize and Case of the year to by November 6.
