This program was designed to provide a foundation for understanding core immunology principles as they relate to basic and clinical research in immunotherapy of cancer.

Workshop in Single Cell Techniques in Immunology & Cancer Immunotherapy
A discussion of single cell techniques with emphasis on the following: increased breadth of circulating tumor cells (instead of biopsy), exosome discussion, tumor heterogeneity, modification of tumor microenvironment to optimize immunotherapy and RNA sequencing in single cell techniques.

2nd World Immunotherapy Council Young Investigators Symposium
This program provided the opportunity for young scientists and future leaders from throughout the world to interact, fulfilling the World Immunotherapy Council's mission to facilitate rapid development and global dissemination of cancer immunotherapies through scientific exchange. Additionally, this forum provided a unique opportunity to showcase the world's young, talented scientists and provide an opportunity for knowledge exchange and networking for these selected representatives.

Industry Program: Biomarkers Fair
Current biomarkers to predict response to immunotherapy single agents or to combinations are suboptimal, and at best enrich for clinical responses. To assess the current landscape, the SITC Industry Committee developed this rapid fire Biomarkers Fair in which companies and interested academic investigators can present their technology.

Hot Topic Symposium
This program addressed the rapidly developing key issues in the field of cancer immunotherapy.
