The onsite Abstract Hub at the Congress venue in Geneva will serve as a dynamic area for informal networking and exchange, where attendees will have the opportunity to explore the entire abstract programme via our user-friendly consultation pods. All accepted abstracts will appear here (subject to accepted abstract authors registering to attend the Congress either in person or virtually by latest 5 July 2024).

international journal of cancer -  SUPPLEMENT

The International Journal of Cancer (IJC) will publish the 200 highest-scoring abstracts from the World Cancer Congress 2024 in a dedicated IJC supplement. The International Journal of Cancer is the official journal of the Union for International Cancer Control and is an international renown peer-reviewed journal with a global readership. The IJC receives over 3,000 submissions a year under a broad scope of topics relevant to experimental and clinical cancer research. This supplement of the IJC will include selected abstracts submitted in the areas of scientific studies, advocacy, policy and practice, and fundraising and presents a fantastic opportunity to researchers to have their work recognized in a leading international medical journal.
 

Formats of presentation

All accepted abstracts will be available in the abstract eLibrary hosted on the dedicated Congress online platform under one of the following presentation formats:

  1. Abstract oral: 8-minute in-person presentation (incl. 2 minutes of Questions and Answers from the in-person audience). Abstract oral presentations are part of a larger session and will be scheduled for presentation in front of an audience of up to 80 people.
    Before 5 July:
    ​​​​Abstract presenters from this category must purchase a registration to attend the Congress in person in Geneva.
     
  2. Rapid Fire: 3-minute presentation in front of an audience of up to 80 people.
    Before 5 July:
    Abstract presenters from this category must purchase a registration to present at the Congress in person in Geneva. In addition to the on-site presentation, the accepted abstract will be part of the abstract eLibrary available on the online platform, and via the on-site consultation pods.

    Accepted Abstract Oral and Rapid Fire presenters are encouraged to use the official WCC 2024 ppt template in preparing their presentations. This template is available for download HERE.

     

  3. Inclusion in the abstract eLibrary + meeting facility: The abstract eLibrary will be hosted on the online platform.
    Before 5 July, submitters and authors who wish to have their accepted abstracts appear in the abstract eLibrary will need to either purchase a registration if they wish to attend the Congress in-person in Geneva, or a digital access if they cannot travel to Geneva and only wish to only have their abstract available in the abstract eLibrary. 

    Connect pro-actively: UICC would like to encourage useful connections and new collaborations amongst participants. All submitters are invited to use the online platform to set-up meetings with other participants to present their work to them. Meetings can be set-up and conducted virtually either directly through the online platform or in-person in Geneva, in one of the lounge areas of the Congress.
