Host the next IACR Annual IACR Scientific Conferences (2020 - 2022)

The Annual IACR Scientific Conference is key activity of the Association. The IACR Annual Scientific Meeting has been held regularly since 1970, and annually since 1982. The conference is an ideal forum for exchanging knowledge with other cancer registry professionals from around the world. Hosted on a different continent each year, the IACR annual conference attracts an average of 200 delegates and offers a rich programme on topics related to the impact of cancer (incidence, survival), the evaluation of cancer screening and treatments, the aetiology of different cancers, and many others.

We invite proposals from cancer registries to host our next annual conferences: 2020 – 2022 in the region of North America, Asia and Africa respectively.

Hosting an IACR Scientific Conference involves establishing a local organising committee involving local or regional partners to help the IACR Executive Committee develop the programme, meeting arrangements and management of the conference.

Cancer registries that are interested in hosting the 2020 – 2022 conferences scheduled for North America, Asia and Africa are asked to declare their interest by submitting a brief proposal via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) listing proposed location, local organizing committee members and rationale to the Association before July 2018.

The proposals will be reviewed by the IACR Board and selected candidates will be invited to make a presentation during the IACR Board of Directors meeting and the IACR Business Meeting, both of which are held during the Association’s Annual Scientific Conference.
