Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The 48th Congress of the International Society of Paediatric Oncology (SIOP) will take place October 19-22, 2016 in Dublin, Ireland.
SIOP's aim is to improve and optimise treatments throughout the world. SIOP's vision is that no child should die of cancer.
A high quality scientific programme covering almost all aspects of paediatric oncology, from basic science to clinical studies will be delivered. The programme is comprised of plenary sessions, guest lectures, committee/group sessions, meet the expert sessions, free and proffered paper sessions, and new to the SIOP congress is the incorporation of sessions specifically geared towards Young Investigators.
We would like to invite, and encourage, all healthcare professionals involved in work on cancer in children, adolescents and young adults to join us at the upcoming congress and to contribute to its high scientific quality.
Dublin, Ireland’s capital and largest city, is a mix of contemporary and traditional at almost every turn, retaining historic and cultural charms.
We look forward to seeing you at the congress - the perfect platform for us to all to meet, share and learn together.
Michael Capra François Doz
Chair, Local Organising Committee Chair, Scientific Committee
