September, 22nd – 24 th, 2022


Dear friends and colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to organize the next EORT CLTG meeting in Madrid, 22-24 September 2022, on the theme “Cutaneous lymphomas: from molecules to PROs”.

We would like to thank the board of the EORTC CTLG for giving us this opportunity. It is a great honor, we are extremely happy and very excited with this task.

The EORTC CLTG Annual Meeting has been a major event for the scientific community all across Europe and it is constantly evolving, becoming more popular, innovative and influential, while maintaining high standards of scientific quality and family atmosphere.

We plan to organize a meeting including everything related to cutaneous lymphomas, from molecules to patient reported outcomes. We would like to have the latest advances in basic and translational research, the latest data originated from PROCLIPI, the latest novelties in treatment. Very importantly, we will include a session for patients at the end of the meeting.

Besides that, we would like to organize a meeting very comfortable for delegates and attendants, plenty of social interaction, plenty of friendship and maybe with some fun. Please, come to Madrid to present your work, your data, your research; come to Madrid to learn, to teach, to enjoy.

We look forward to welcoming you to Madrid in September 2022.

The goal is to offer a comprehensive conference to present new research, share experiences, and discuss new directions or the advancement of knowledge in Cutaneous Lymphomas.

Who attends this meeting 

The conference is designed for international dermatologists, basic scientists, epidemiologists, hematologists, immunologists, oncologists, pathologists, radiation oncologists, and psychologists.
The program committee expects 200-300 attendees. The participation of students and post-doctoral fellows is encouraged through reduced registration fees, oral presentations, and poster sessions.
A session dedicated to patients will be organized on Saturday afternoon in partnership with the newly stablished Spanish Assotiation of Cutaneous Lymphoma Patients.

Conference Focus

The conference will present sessions covering all aspects of cutaneous lymphomas including:

  • Pathophysiology, Genomics and Epigenomics, Molecular targets
  • Immunology, Host response, Animal models, Microenvironment
  • Translational Research, diagnostic and prognostic markers
  • Pathology
  • Epidemiology
  • PROCLIPI research
  • New treatments, clinical trials, topical and systemic therapies, combination of treatments, therapeutic strategies
  • Non MF T-cell lymphoma, B cell lymphoma
  • Quality of Life and Patient Reported outcomes.

A preliminary program will be available end of summer
