The CELCCs have a long tradition and have been regularly held in various cities of Central Europe since 1992. Besides focusing on molecular diagnosis and targeted therapies, this year’s Conference will also have a session on the implementation of screening and a special Chinese-Central European Symposium. Our editorial staffs are going to attend the 14th CELCC in Vienna to better exhibit our journals. We welcome you to visit us at exhibit booth (Figure 2) for free copies and giveaways.
