The Canadian Cancer Trials Group 2010 Spring Meeting of Participants is being held 30 April - 2 May at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal.

All invitations have now been sent via email directly to invitees. This year, changes have been made to funding provided for attendance at Spring Meeting 2010 and invitations are FULL-FUNDED, PARTIAL-FUNDED, OR NON-FUNDED. PLEASE CHECK YOUR INVITATION CAREFULLY TO DETERMINE YOUR FUNDING STATUS.

Invitations included your Attendee ID number which you will need for on-line registration. If you are NOT planning to attend, you are able to indicate that as well through the on-line registration utility, and we encourage you to do so.
