v2 / July 2008 10th INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON PAEDIATRIC SOFT TISSUE SARCOMA EpSSG - COG / IRSG - SIOP MMT - AEIOP - CWS Monday / Tuesday 17th & 18th November 2008 Bristol, UK Since 1986, nine International Workshops (see attached details) have been held between the European and North American paediatric soft tissue sarcoma collaborative groups with the intention of exploring aspects of the assessment and treatment of (in most cases) rhabdomyosarcoma. The format of these meetings has been based on the meta analysis of shared data set(s) and the presentation of the results for discussion by a relatively small audience composing the key participants in international collaborative studies. The 10th International Workshop will be held in Bristol, UK, in November 2008. The topics selected for discussion are Extremity and Parameningeal Rhabdomyosarcoma. The dates have been chosen to follow the CTOS (Connective Tissue Oncology Society) meeting being held in London on 13 th – 15th November (for details see: http://www.ctos.org/meeting/2008/programPrelim.asp). The programme will also include a meeting of the European paediatric Soft Tissue Sarcoma (EpSSG) Coordinating Group to which members of the other collaborative groups attending the workshop are welcome to attend. Registration If you would like to attend the meeting, please complete and send the attached registration form to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to +44 117 342 0170.

There will be a workshop dinner on Monday evening, November 17th to which all participants are invited.

Transport links include a frequent rail service from London (Paddington) (see www.thetrainline.com ) and daily air connections from most major European cities and from New York (Newark). (further information: http://www.bristolairport.co.uk/flight_information/destinations_map.aspx ) Bristol is the principal city of the South West of England and has a long (not always proud!) historical heritage. Dating from the 12th century, Bristol was an important trading port and in the 17th and early 18th centuries owed much of its wealth to the slave trade and to the importation of tobacco. In Victorian times the city was particularly associated with the engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, who designed the Great Western Railway between Bristol and London, pioneering Bristol-built ocean going steamships (the SS Great Britain is still on view in the city), and the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge. Nearby attractions include the beautiful cities of Bath and Wells.
