European Multidisciplinary Cancer Congress 2011

Media can register now for Europe's premier cancer congress: The 2011 European Multidisciplinary Cancer Congress in Stockholm, 23-27 September 2011

The 2011 European Multidisciplinary Cancer Congress will take place at the Stockholmsmssan (Stockholm International Fairs), Stockholm, Sweden, ( from Friday 23 September to Tuesday 27 September 2011.

The congress will build on the success of the previous ECCO (European CanCer Organisation), ESMO (European Society for Medical Oncology) and ESTRO (European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology) conferences. It is the only cancer congress in Europe to offer presentations of cutting-edge research across the whole cancer field, from experimental and clinical oncologists, scientists, radiotherapists, epidemiologists, and cancer nurses. At least 16,000 scientists, doctors, nurses, patients, carers and industry representatives are expected to attend.

Leading experts in different cancer fields have developed a wide-ranging and exciting congress programme with around 2000 presentations and large numbers of reports of translational research and first reports from high quality phase II and III clinical trials. In addition, for the first time there will be five new tracks, including industry and "oncotechnology". The "oncopolicy" track launched at the 2009 congress will continue to tackle issues of prime importance to the European cancer community, as well as helping to inform European policy and ensuring cancer's place at the top of the EU health and research policy agenda.

ECCO (the European CanCer Organisation, which is organising the congress), ESMO and ESTRO welcome the interest of the press in cancer issues and are happy to provide full assistance to journalists attending the 2011 Stockholm congress, or using the congress website as a resource in their coverage of cancer issues. A media centre with computing, fax, photocopying and free international phone and internet connections will be available.

NB: The first official press conference for the 2011 European Multidisciplinary Cancer Congress is likely take place on Friday 23 September at around 17.00 hours (CEST), when presentations about abstracts to be presented to the congress on Saturday will be made. Details are still to be confirmed but please take this into your calculations when planning your time of arrival.
