- Diagnosis of liver metastases
- Surgical treatment of liver metastases
- Non-surgical treatment
NET cancer specialists from France, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States, Norway, China, and the Netherlands comprise the Scientific Organizing Committee. The conference will follow the Danish model in its organization of hot topics discussed extensively and reviewed well in advance by working groups of key individuals.

A panel of non-NET specialists, the jury, will assess the controversial developments regarding expert insights and will produce statements at the end of the conference.
