Due to uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, the deadlines for submitting abstracts to the World Cancer Congress and for early bird registration have been extended. The new deadlines are 8 May for abstracts and 29 May for registrations.


The 2020 World Cancer Congress is still scheduled to take place as planned in October. However, UICC is closely monitoring the situation and will make further adjustments if and when they become necessary.

Call for Abstracts – New deadline: 8 May

If you have developed work in advocacy, fundraising, science or research on any aspect of cancer control, do not hesitate to submit as soon as possible. This is a unique opportunity to showcase your work and present your findings to an expected 3,500 participants from 130 countries, representing a wide range of actors in global health.

We have received excellent abstracts from the cancer community so far, and we look forward to receiving more in the coming days. We hope yours will be among them.
