 A very efficient team of reviewers, ably led by Tom Tucker, carried out the review over 114 posters from 32 countries.  The award for best poster was attributed to Monica Sierra (IARC) for her poster on Age-period-cohort analyses of breast, cervical and prostate cancer mortality rates in Central and South America, while the second prize went to  Rob Verhoeven (Large variation in the utilization of liver resections in colorectal cancer patients with liver metastases)  and the third prize to Jaume Galceran (Estimation of the effect of prostate-specific antigen  (PSA) screening on prostate cancer incidence in Spain).

Social events included a spectacular tango show in one of the most famous tango restaurants in Buenos Aires and a gala dinner in the prestigious Hipodromo reception room.


The Enrico Anglesio Prize Award took place at the end of the 2014 Business meeting.  The prize was awarded to Iman Meziane, of Casablanca (Morocco) for a presentation on "The Moroccan Breast Cancer Registry (MBCR): Assessment of Breast Cancer Risk in Morocco". The other competitors were: Carlotta Buzzoni (Italy), Carolina Terra de Moraes Luizaga (Brazil) and Gonçalo Forjaz de Lacerda (Portugal).
