Two thousand children’s cancer specialists, representing every continent, will be converging on the Barbican Centre in the heart of the City of London to network and share knowledge on the research and treatment of all cancer types – including leukaemia and brain tumours – in children and young people.
As the largest annual paediatric cancer meeting in the world, SIOP Congresses are designed to provide a highly interactive platform. In so doing, they attract a multi-stakeholder attendance connecting parents, survivors, clinicians, healthcare professionals, scientists and industry.
Paediatric oncologists are early adopters of new technology and keenly interested in advances in this key aspect of their professional work. Symposia focused on technologies which hold the promise for more effective work practices and better patient outcomes are an attractive part of the Congress.
In addition to plenary sessions, which are open to all delegates, there will be associated meetings for paediatric surgeons, radiation specialists, haematologists and specialist nurses involved in both hospital and community based stages of the cancer pathway.
