WORDS OF WELCOME
8th Annual Canadian Conference on Lymphoproliferative Disorders (CCOLD)
Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, Lake Louise, Alberta – March 18-20, 2016
On behalf of the planning committee, I have the pleasure of inviting you to the 8th Annual Canadian Conference on Lymphoproliferative Disorders.
CCOLD provides a unique opportunity for attendees to interact with international experts in the field of hematologic malignancies. The scope of this meeting will highlight both recent research findings elucidating the pathophysiology of these diverse diseases, as well as changes in therapeutic advances that have had a large impact in the management of our patients. As in previous meetings the format will be didactic presentations as well as case based panel discussions. There will be opportunity for audience participation via keypad polling devices with the entire faculty featured during the panel discussions.
Internationally known researchers in Lymphoproliferative and Plasma Cell Disorders will provide keynote lectures and their perspectives on optimal management.

We will continue to support the “Young Investigators Research Awards Program” which has been very successful in providing educational and research support to trainees interested in Lymphoproliferative Disorders. Posters outlining their research will be focused at a special reception Saturday afternoon.
The organizing committee for the Allied Health Care Session have organized an exciting afternoon highlighting various topics in management of patients with LPD.
CCOLD will be held at Lake Louise which is one of the most scenic alpine destinations. This provides the ideal setting to participate in this premier educational event and to network with your colleagues.
