The Indian Cancer congress is an amalgamation of the four major national oncology associations ( The Association of Radiation Oncologists of India, Indian Association of Surgical Oncology, the Indian Society of Medical & Pediatric Oncologists and the Indian Society of Oncology) . This conference is a planned quadrennial event of these four associations and all other sub specialty associations to improve the quality of cancer care through multidisciplinary interactionand will be held in various parts of the Indian subcontinent once every four years. The ICC2017 conference is scheduled to be held from 9th to 12th November 2017 (with pre-conference workshop held on 8th Nov 2017) in Bengaluru, India.The theme for the conference is “INSIGHT, INNOVATION, INTEGRATION” The field of oncology is rapidly evolving and is in constant flux. What is thought to be true today may very soon be turned on its head by new insights and new innovations. It is therefore prudent and necessary that we the oncology community – periodically stop in our fast tracks and take stock of some important insights and innovations and debate how best we can integrate these innovations into our practice. The congress hopes to attract each and everyone involved in the care of the cancer patient including physicians, basic scientists, patients, survivors , care givers, researchers, investors etc and to provide a platform from which meaningful value addition can emerge.
