Call for proposals to host the IACR Annual IACR Scientific Conferences

The Annual IACR Scientific Conference is key activity of the Association. It brings together members as a means to foster the exchange of information internationally, so improving quality of data and comparability between registries. We invite proposals to host our annual conference for 2018 – 2021.

Hosting an IACR Scientific Conference involves establishing a local organising committee to help the Program Committee form a theme, provide meeting arrangements (recommended hotels, transportation and visitor information), developing a social programme, providing staff to assist with logistics (registration, book of abstracts, workshops) and identifying regional partners.

Registries that are interested 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.) to outline the location, local organizing committee and rationale to the Association. Selected candidates will be invited to prepare a presentation to the Executive Board for final decision. 

CI5-XI Call For Data Launched

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the International Association of Cancer Registries (IACR) are pleased to announce that the call for data for Cancer Incidence in Five Continents Volume XI (CI5-XI) has now been launched.

The target incidence period for CI5-XI is 2008-2012, and data from three consecutive years within this time period are the minimum that will be considered for publication. The deadline for data submission is 1 November 2015.

Cancer Incidence in Five Continents isan invaluable resource for cancer researchers and those involved in planning, monitoring and evaluating cancer control programmes worldwide. It provides a vital link between population-based cancer registries around the world, IACR and IARC.
