The 2014 World Cancer Congress will take place in Melbourne, Australia on 3-6 December 2014.

Organised by UICC and hosted by Cancer Council Australia, an active UICC Member organisation, the 2014 World Cancer Congress will once again gather all cancer control professions under one roof, at a crucial time in the global fight against cancer. Held every two years, the World Cancer Congress has become a not-to-be missed event in the global health calendar of events. The Congress promises to provide participating delegates with even more opportunities to interact with an impressive range of experts from all over the world.

One of the key objectives of the 2014 World Cancer Congress will be to arm delegates with the necessary tools that will enable them to make a difference, implement and take actions at all levels, in the global fight against cancer.
The 2014 theme Joining Forces - Accelerating Progress will emphasize the impact that can be realised by consistently and energetically applying what we know rather than waiting for possible future "breakthroughs" to change the landscape. This will be discussed across a variety of economic and cultural contexts.

The 2014 World Cancer Congress will be held in conjunction with the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia (COSA) Annual Scientific Meeting. COSA’s Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) is considered the premier gathering of cancer health professionals in Australia each year. Delegates to the meeting include clinicians and researchers representing medical and radiation oncologists, cancer surgeons, nurses, psycho-oncologists, pharmacists, and other allied health workers. In 2014 we are hosting COSA’s 41st ASM at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre 2-4 December. The theme for the 41st conference will highlight cancer survivorship, supportive care and palliative care – all important areas of interest for COSA members.
