2016 World Cancer Congress: From Paris to “Mobilise action – Accelerate change”.

More than 3’500 cancer experts will travel to Paris to discuss the latest cancer trends and projections, learn about best practices in science implementation and meet their peers from around the world. 

Since 2011, our World Cancer Congresses have been known for providing great intellectual and social interaction for the participants. 

Join our hosts the French League Against Cancer and ALIAM for the 2016 World Cancer Congress to be held from 31 October to 3 November in Paris, and discover what is in store in the coming years. 

What is there for me?
Lots...a lively programme will be designed in collaboration with UICC’s members and partners, and will expose the Congress participants to a large choice of sessions, interactive debates, workshops, capacity building schemes within the five cancer control tracks:
Track 1 - Stemming the tide: innovations in prevention and screening
Track 2 - Closing the gap: quality cancer treatment and diagnosis for all
Track 3 - Improving patient and family experiences
Track 4 - Strengthening cancer control: optimising outcomes of health systems
Track 5 - Empowering civil societies: building capacity for change - NEW!

For the first time this year, a fifth track called Capacity Building will complete the programme. This new track aims to respond to nowadays challenges and empower individuals and organistions to better respond to fast changing economic conditions, new stakeholders behaviours, political and regulatory challenges and technological trends.

The Congress participants will also be able to enjoy the Congress’ most popular features, including the Global Village, Abstracts presentations, Big Debates, Workshops, Master Courses, and new networking opportunities.
