The call for sessions is open - submit your proposal now


As of today, you can submit a session proposal for the 2018 World Cancer Congress in Kuala Lumpur. The proposals must be with us by 31st October.

The programme will be built around five thematic tracksThey will provide the framework through which the global cancer community will be able to deliver a suite of engaging sessions covering the full spectrum of cancer control. 

Our education programme aims to cover a variety of diverse and timely topics relevant to cancer control and appropriate for many professional disciplines, including research, advocacy, policy, prevention, primary healthcare, business development, digital health, and much more.

At the Paris Congress in 2016, over 140 multidisciplinary sessions were handpicked for their innovative practice across the cancer continuum, ensuring high-quality interactions.

Tell us about your collaborative work in the area of cancer control. We are looking for sessions that provide evidence based content which will help our community build their skills, elevate their careers, deliver innovative solutions to fight cancer globally and transfer that knowledge in a wide range of settings.

More details around the process, including a full timeline and submission guidelines, are available on the call for sessions page.
