Important notice:

The SIOP Scientific Committee jointly with our SIOP Scientific Programme Advisory WG has finished the review and scoring of all submitted abstracts. The abstract selection and allocation (oral and poster presentations) will be taking place early June 2024. We will announce the final selection of scholarship (incl. nursing) and/or Young Investigator Award winners by end of June 2024 by email.

We do know that for many of you in-person attendances to the congress depends on receiving a scholarship (incl. nursing) and/or Young Investigator Award. We are also wary of the long process to secure US visa interview appointment and collecting the necessary documentation. Unfortunately, we cannot speed up this process.
