We are delighted to launch the new 2020 World Cancer Congress website.
The website reflects the new visual identity of the conference which will be held from 19 to 22 October in Muscat, Oman. Themed ‘The way forward’, the 2020 Congress will be hosted by the Oman Cancer Association and the National Oncology Centre Royal Hospital Muscat.
Our team of experts, led by Dr Heather Bryant and Dr Anil D’Cruz, is committed to build a multidisciplinary and innovative programme, which will cover the full cancer control spectrum over seven themes:
The programme aims to expose the Congress participants to a great choice of sessions, interactive debates, workshops and capacity building opportunities, promoting knowledge transfer and best practices exchange among the cancer community.
Unlike conventional events, the Congress draws its success from the extensive knowledge and experiences of the global cancer community, who can actively participate in designing a diverse and forward-looking programme.
This is an opportunity for any individual involved with cancer control to contribute towards the programme development. We welcome session proposals from all fields: advocacy, cancer care, fundraising, marketing, medicine, palliative care, partnerships, patient groups, pharmaceutics, policy-making, prevention, research and technology.
We encourage you to start brainstorming with peers about innovative and inspiring topics that could compose one of the seven themes of the Congress. We will soon announce the set dates of the call for sessions, and we look forward to receiving your proposal during September and October 2019, which will help us shape the 2020 World Cancer Congress programme. Stay tuned!
Going forward, we will continually expand our online content and keep you up to date with the latest Congress information on www.worldcancercongress.org.
