The 15th International Conference on Malignant Lymphoma will take place in the Lugano Convention Centre, Palazzo dei Congressi.

Palazzo dei Congressi (PCL) is in the centre of the city (it’s a 10-minute walk from the central railway station), but overlooks Parco Ciani, the beautiful city park, and faces the lake of Lugano. Its rooms will host the scientific general sessions and the satellite symposia.

Some of “Meet the Professor”, “Focus on…” and other parallel sessions will be held in additional large conference rooms which are 5-minute walk from the main convention centre (Cinema Corso and University). The same halls serve also as overflow rooms for the main sessions, held in Palazzo dei Congressi. For the first time, it will be possible to submit questions to the speaker even from the halls where sessions are broadcasted.

Lunches, coffee breaks, poster sessions and the commercial exhibition will take place in the “Marquee Parco Ciani”, a large gazebo built in Parco Ciani, overlooking the lakeshore and connected to Palazzo dei Congressi by a covered walkway.

15-ICML is proud to compensate its greenhouse gas emissions investing in the carbon offset project: “Paradigm Cookstoves and Water, Kenya”.


The 15-ICML will bring more than 3’000 physicians to Lugano from all over the world: haematologists, clinical oncologists, radiation oncologists, paediatricians, pathologists and leading researchers involved in the study and treatment of lymphoid neoplasms.
