Austrian Society of Surgical Oncology (ACO-ASSO)


The quality diagnostics and treatment of malignant diseases is today an interdisciplinary task.

In addition to their exclusive competence in surgical expertise - ie the responsibility for the surgical treatment of tumor diseases - the Austrian tumor surgeons are also the main responsible case managers at many institutions, ie they coordinate the interdisciplinary process, organize the interaction of the individual specialists and act as the main contact person for the affected patients and their families.

They also perform drug non-operative cancer treatment on selected tumor diseases.

Professional competence, unconditional will for excellence, modern quality and risk management, and empathic patient care are our common aspirations.

The deadline for abstract submissions is 15 June 2018.
