Media registration for the European Cancer Congress

The 17th ECCO 38th ESMO 32nd ESTRO European Cancer Congress will take place at Amsterdam RAI, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (, from Friday 17 September to Tuesday 1 October 2013. Registration for bona fide journalists is free.

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 18,000 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. The "late breaking" presentations, where researchers can submit their abstracts after the normal deadline for the Congress, will have the very latest, up-to-the-minute "hot" news from clinical trials with practice-changing implications.

The "oncopolicy" track 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 (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 2013 Amsterdam congress, or using the congress website as a resource in their coverage of cancer issues. A media centre with computing, photocopying and free international phone and internet connections will be available.

NB: There will be two official opening press conferences for the 2013 European Cancer Congress on Friday 27 September:

  • 13.00 hrs CEST in Dutch for the Dutch media about Dutch research at the Congress
  • 17.00 hrs CEST in English for all journalists about abstracts to be presented at the Congress on Saturday, as well as some navigational tips for the Congress from our cancer experts

Please take the timings of these press conferences into your calculations when planning your time of arrival.
