IACR ANNUAL MEETINGS
The IACR Annual Meeting is a scientific meeting lasting two to three days. The meetings usually focus
on topics related to cancer registration and epidemiology, for example 'Poverty and Cancer',
'Infection and Cancer', ‘Role of cancer registries in prevention’, etc... An effort is made to locate
the meetings in different continents each year so that members in all parts of world can
participate. Usually, at least a part of the scientific programme reflects the major concerns of the
world region surrounding the Annual Meeting location.
At the occasion of the Annual Meeting, two other meetings also take place:
Meeting of IACR Executive Board, at which its members evaluate the
past and plan future activities of the Association.
At the Business Meeting, the activities for the past year and the
plans for the next one are presented to the membership. This is the occasion for all IACR members
to voice their views on the life of the organisation.
The regional cancer registration networks may also decide to organize their annual and business meetings
at the time of the IACR meetings
In June 2014 IACR and North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR)
will co-sponsor an unprecedented educational opportunity by bringing together the world leaders in cancer surveillance
for a week-long symposium which combines the NAACCR and IACR annual conferences. The Conference is developed by and for
cancer surveillance professionals to learn about the latest trends, acquire new skills, share research findings, improve
public health, and support a variety of cancer research endeavors.
