October 2013

I encourage all of you to attend the 15th World Conference on Lung Cancer in Sydney, Australia. Sydney is surely one of the most iconic cities of the world, and Australia is renowned for the welcome it gives to visitors. Our Local Organizing Committee, headed by Drs. Michael Boyer and Kwun Fong, have worked exceedingly hard to ensure a busy and stimulating scientific program in this wonderful Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre. Such a massive undertaking requires close collaboration with many parties, including the convention centre staff; our professional conference organizers, International Conference Services; the dedicated team in the IASLC office headed by Paul Bunn, MD; and the volunteers on the Board and in all our committees, especially the Education Committee, who assisted the Core Program Committee. Our thanks go to all of them.

A significant step towards implementation of personalized medicine for lung cancer patients is the recent publication of the CAP/IASLC/AMP Guidelines for Molecular Testing. The IASLC is proud to be a part of this development, which should improve patient care and secure the many patients with lung cancer the most optimal therapy based on standardized and validated molecular tests. The IASLC is currently putting considerable effort into implementing these guidelines in clinical practice.
