New York 2018 Overview

10th International Workshop on
Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia and
Symposium on Advances in Multiple Myeloma
New York Marriott Downtown, New York, NY

October 10-13, 2018

The 10th International Workshop for Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia and Symposium on Advances in Multiple Myeloma will be held on October 10th through October 13th, 2018 at the New York Marriott Downtown in the heart of New York City, New York, USA. Onsite registration and check-in will be available prior to the start of the conference.

Overall, we expect IWWM-10 to be as comprehensive as IWWM-9, which included 15 sessions with 66 technical presentations including a Junior Investigator Poster presentation event with 6 short oral presentations, 53 WM and MM posters, a special lecture, Opening and Closing Ceremonies, a Speakers Reception, and two (2) Great Debate sessions inclusive.

We are in the process of planning the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, speaker reception, poster presentations, Great Debates, and other possible activities.

The 2016 IWWM-9 was our most comprehensive meeting to date, and we expect this latest workshop to continue its ideology to build on this progress. These meetings reflect the continued growth in investigators working on the genetic basis, pathogenesis, and clinical treatments of WM. Since the IWWM began in 2000, the number of international participating investigators has steadily grown as have the number of WM related publications including those created and developed from the IWWM Workshops. Such publications have been the New England Journal of Medicine, Blood, Clinical Lymphoma Myeloma, Haematologica, Journal of Clinical Oncology, and Seminars of Oncology.

The IWWM will continue its research and investigations into these hematologic malignancies and to provide debates, discussions, and collaborations on the ongoing current research, and enrich each attendee’s understanding of Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia and help foster discoveries leading to more effective treatments and ultimately, a cure.
