The International Incidence of Childhood Cancer (IICC) is a collaborative project of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the International Association of Cancer Registries (IACR) to disseminate the available data on the incidence of cancer in children around the world.
This is being achieved through the publication of a monograph, the third volume in the IICC series (IICC-3), co-sponsored by the Union of International Cancer Control (UICC). Data from 440 registries in five continents have been collected, validated, analyzed and evaluated. More than 300 registries provided high quality datasets and were selected for publication for IICC-3 after reigorous peer review by the IICC-3 Editors. The online data has just been released on the occasion of the International Childhood Cancer Day last 15 February 2017.
The IICC-3 Editors acknowledge contribution of all the registries to the improvement of quality and comparability of global data on childhood cancer incidence.

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.
