The World Cancer Congress

Mobilise action – Inspire change



Palais des Congrès de Paris

In 2016, more than 3’500 cancer experts will travel to Paris to discuss the latest cancer trends and projections, learn about best practices in science implementation and meet their peers from around the world.

“The opportunities to network with our national and international colleagues, to attend a range of excellent presentations on various
aspects of cancer and to understand the significant scope of work being undertaken to reduce the impact of cancer on the global community were invaluable. I look forward to the 2016 World Cancer Congress in Paris to continue to strengthen our international links and collaborations.”

Anthony Lowe, Chief Executive Officer, Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia

Since 2011, our World Cancer Congresses have been known for providing great intellectual and social interaction for the participants.

Join our hosts the French League Against Cancer and ALIAM for the 2016 World Cancer Congress to be held from 31 October to 3 November in Paris, and discover what is in store in the coming years.
