The next World Cancer Congress will be held in Geneva, Switzerland on 17-20 October 2022 with the theme “Committed to global collaboration and knowledge sharing to accelerate progress in cancer control”.
For the first time, the Congress will be a hybrid event and broadcasted live, bringing together over 3,000 participants representing hospitals, research institutions, healthcare services, patient group organisations, international agencies, governments, universities and many more.
UICC is now opening a call for sessions, aiming to develop a programme that brings together the very best of innovation and progress happening across the full spectrum of cancer control, at national, regional and global levels.
This is a unique opportunity for cancer experts to share their knowledge and experience with the global cancer community, gain visibility and contribute to advancing cancer control.
The 2022 programme is built around six themes: prevention, screening and early detection; research and progress; healthcare systems and policies; treatment and palliative care; tobacco control; and people living with cancer. The Programme Committee consists of renowned experts led by Dr Heather Bryant, Prof. Anil D'Cruz, and Dr Pierre-Yves Dietrich.
Any proposal should fall under one of the six programme themes. UICC is looking for evidence-based session proposals that are innovative, challenge how healthcare systems currently deliver services and represent the latest advances in cancer control.
