Childhood Cancer: IICC-3

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.

Host the next IACR Annual IACR Scientific Conferences (2022 - 2024)

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 annual conferences: 2022 – 2024 in Europe, Africa,  and Latin America, 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 2022 – 2024 conferences scheduled for Europe, Africa and Latin America 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 June 2019.

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.

IACR Constitution (2016)

The Association has updated its Constitution and Standing Rules.  These were ratified by the Board and submitted to the vote of the members, with the voting process completed in January 2016.  The 2016 Constitution conserves valued parts of the current Constitution while taking into consideration other suggestions to best meet the needs of our membership. 

See the letter of introduction from the IACR President and the IACR Executive Secretary outlining rationale and the process for the update.
