The last edition of the ICML Congress (15-ICML) brought together about 3’500 physicians from all over the world: hematologists, clinical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pediatricians, pathologists and leading researchers involved in the study and treatment of lymphoid neoplasms.

Please note that the 16-ICML Industry Program is intended only for healthcare professionals involved in the study and treatment of lymphoid neoplasms.


Advisory Board

The Advisory Board gathers lymphoma experts and specialists from around the world. Their role is fundamental in the development of the ICML Scientific Program, helping the Organizing Committee to ensure not only the impartiality of the evaluation but also the multiplicity of approaches and skills.
The members of the Board contribute to the choice of topics and speakers and evaluate the submitted abstracts. During the days of the Conference they collaborate by introducing special lectures and moderating the sessions.
