ECCO 15 ESMO 34 will take place at the ICC Berlin Internationales Congress Centrum, Messedamm 22, D-14055 Berlin, Germany (www.icc-berlin.de) from Sunday 20 September to Thursday 24 September 2009.
ECCO 15 ESMO 34 will build on the success of the previous ECCO (European Cancer Conference) and ESMO (European Society for Medical Oncology) conferences. It provides a unique European forum for presentations of cutting-edge research from experimental and clinical oncologists, epidemiologists and cancer nurses. Over 15,000 scientists, doctors, nurses, patients, carers and industry representatives are expected to attend.
More than 100 experts in different cancer fields have developed a wide-ranging and exciting congress programme, with large numbers of reports of translational research and first reports from high quality phase III clinical trials. In addition, for the first time there will be an "oncopolicy" track; this has been introduced to help inform European policy on cancer and to ensure its place at the top of the EU health and research policy agenda.
ECCO (the European CanCer Organisation, which is organising the congress) and ESMO welcome the interest of the press in cancer issues and are happy to provide full assistance to journalists attending ECCO 15 ESMO 34, 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 ECCO 15 ESMO 34 will take place on Sunday 20 September at 17.00 hours (CEST), when presentations about abstracts to be presented to the congress on Monday will be made. Please ensure you arrive in time for this!
