The Joint Best of ASTRO® 2018 and Best of ASCO® 2018 meeting is organized as a two-day summary of the top ranked and most influential abstracts from the Annual Meetings.

Abstract Sessions

The Program Planning Committee selects the abstracts in advance of the Annual Meeting, and the Track Chair (Moderators) of each disease site/section will act as a Discussant to present the selected abstracts.
The Moderator's role is to provide a context that helps better judge the importance of the abstracts within that section, compare and contrast the abstracts and highlight key points through their own presentation, and use their expertise in this area to guide an active discussion that helps describe how the information may be relevant to the audience's daily practice.

Faculty Q & A Sessions

Abstract tracks/sections will be grouped together and then a "Faculty Question and Answer" period will take place. An open discussion is also encouraged in this session.
