UICC Member Newsletter - April 2013

Joining Forces Accelerating Progress at the 2014 World Cancer Congress

We are counting on you!

Members are encouraged to help us build a top quality programme for the 2014 World Cancer Congress by submitting session proposals before 3rd May. Your expertise and ideas are needed to shape a programme highlighting collaboration, interactivity and innovative thinking.


All the session proposals will be reviewed by the Programme Committee of the Congress, a team of ten experts responsible for putting together the programme. 

We are confident that the Congress will be truly memorable for our members.  We have used your feedback to shape the event: delegates will have extensive networking and meeting opportunities; sessions will promote greater interactivity between presenters and delegates; and, for the first time, we will have an entire track to showcase how UICC members have used filming and advertising to educate and influence the general public. An App will help delegates navigate their way through the Congress and reach out to contacts. 

For further information, please contact the Congress Team at congress@uicc.org.

The 2014 World Cancer Congress will be hosted by UICC member Cancer Council Australia and will take place in Melbourne on 3-6 December 2014. This is a truly international event which brings together a unique group of people who have much in common.



UICC plans to have a strong presence at the WHA, representing members, both as observers in the Member State discussions and through a series of side events to draw attention to NCD and cancer-specific issues.
