The Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) invites you to attend the workshop, Interrogating the Tumor-Specific Surfaceome for Immune Targeting. Scheduled for Sept. 29–30, 2021, in San Diego, this SITC workshop will focus on the tumor cell surfaceome and the many opportunities that accompany it for the development of future immunotherapies and maximization of existing techniques. By bringing together experts on the topic from a variety of fields including medical oncology, bioinformatics, cancer biology, genetics/epigenetics, immunology, and many others, the workshop will facilitate increased discussion in this important area.
Concepts ranging from the basic biology of cancer cell surface molecules to applications of drugs and cellular therapies targeting novel surface markers will be discussed, with the goal of defining the future direction of the field. It is anticipated that the efforts of this workshop will fuel innovative collaborations, disseminate important knowledge to the rest of the immunotherapy field, and help assure the continued growth of immunotherapy treatments as a whole.
Four slots for oral abstract presentations are available during this workshop.
Posters will be presented during the Poster Reception. Poster specifications will be based on the number of abstracts that will be presented and will be provided with acceptance notifications. The presenting author is responsible for printing, bringing and hanging up their poster. SITC does not provide printing services on-site, or special accommodations for disposing of or shipping posters after the workshop.

VIEW ABSTRACT SUBMISSION GUIDE
Immediately following the Surfaceome Workshop, SITC is hosting a unique workshop, Bispecific T cell Engagers Workshop, focused on T cell engager biology and therapeutic strategies including target selection, therapeutic engineering and design features, cytotoxicity vs cytokine release, impact of the tumor microenvironment, and advances in conditionally-active binding.A collaborative session, taking place the morning of Sept. 30, will allow attendees from both workshops to discuss alignment and debates in the areas of the two workshops with the focus on how to continue to advance the field.It is anticipated that the efforts of these workshops will fuel innovative collaborations, disseminate important knowledge to the rest of the immunotherapy field, and help assure the continued growth of immunotherapy treatments as a whole.Participants will receive a discount when registering for both the Bispecific T cell Engagers Workshop and the Surfaceome Workshop, which take place at the same location.

To receive the discounted hotel rates, reservations must be made before Sept. 2, 2021.NOTE: SITC will announce in early July 2021 if the meeting will be held virtually or in person.
SITC is actively monitoring the incidence of COVID-19 and how it may impact our workshops. At this time, SITC is planning to host this event live (in-person) in San Diego. We will continue to assess the feasibility and safety of a live event. In the instance an in-person meeting is not feasible, the workshop will shift to a virtual format. This decision will be announced in early July 2021, and should the need arise, registrants will have the option for a refund or to convert to a virtual registration.
