Welcome Message


Dear colleagues and friends,

It is our great pleasure and honor to welcome you to the 6th Quadrennial Meeting of the World Federation of Neuro-oncology Societies (WFNOS 2022) to be held jointly with the 17th Meeting of the Asian Society for Neuro-oncology (ASNO) in Seoul, Korea on March 24-27, 2022.

Expectations are growing for the role of WFNOS, which is a platform and umbrella organization seeking to support and promote the rapidly developing research and education of neuro-oncology around the world. WFNOS charter societies (SNO, EANO, ASNO) welcome joining of new groups, SNOLA, SNOSSA, PASNO etc. to fight against brain cancer.

You will get to expand your knowledge and be exposed to numerous networking opportunity with leading scientists and researchers in this outstanding event for neuro-oncology worldwide. The top-notch conference programs will serve as a bridge to connect the traditional concepts with new perspectives; basic research with clinical practice; and developing countries with advanced countries.

It's a pity in the face of a global pandemic that we can't enjoy the fascinating face-to-face meeting in Seoul with international scholars, but we will try to make use of the realism as much as possible through four simultaneous live sessions, real-time Q&A, and e-mail communication to make it a successful conference. We wish you a fruitful and productive WFNOS 2022.

Best regards,

Yong-Kil Hong President WFNOS, ASNO
Patrick Y. Wen Co-Chair SNO
Martin van den Bent Co-Chair EANO
