Champalimaud Foundation– Centre For The Unknown

This meeting is designed for clinicians and researchers who have a specific interest in aesthetic results of breast cancer local treatment (conservative or radical surgery with or without reconstruction and radiotherapy).

TSIO will focus on objective evaluation of aesthetic results of Breast Cancer Local Treatment now extending the topic from aesthetic results in classic breast cancer conservative treatment to other forms of breast surgery with or without reconstruction and with or without radiotherapy.

For those who work on the development of tools for aesthetic assessment it is imperative to understand the clinical difficulties derived from the evaluation and for clinicians to be able to integrate and learn to use these new instruments.

It is therefore an important meeting for bringing together clinicians and medical and engineer researchers with special interest in the subject.



Target audience: breast surgeons, oncoplastic breast surgeons, plastic surgeons, radiation oncologists, engineers and other researchers interested in this topic.


Seminar Objectives

  • To give information regarding currently used methods for the aesthetic evaluation of breast cancer local treatment.

  • To show the results of groups working with objective evaluation methods.
  • To disclose some of the new pathways regarding objective methodology.
  • To promote collaboration in this area of research, new ideas for projects and encourage new contacts.

6 April 2011: Abstract submission (extended)

15 April 2011: Early registration and grant application

30 April 2011: Late registration
