Welcome message

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to personally invite you to the 2020 Annual Meeting of the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC) and the International Society of Oral Oncology (ISOO), which will take place in Seville, Spain, June 25 to 27.

The MASCC/ISOO Annual Meeting is the leading international and multidisciplinary conference on supportive care in cancer. It addresses a wide range of problems experienced by patients and their caregivers as a result of cancer and its treatments through all stages of the disease: diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, survivorship, palliative and end-of-life care.

This year’s meeting focuses on three main themes: cardio-oncology, bioethics. and models of supportive care. Sub-themes will include digital health, palliative care, and cancer survivorship, as well as sessions reflecting the interests of MASCC/ISOO Study Groups. The meeting format will be similar to that of previous years, with plenary and parallel sessions, workshops, and meet-the-expert sessions. We also plan to hold more debates and another Dragons’ Den (Shark Tank) session for delegates seeking support for new projects.

In addition to its cutting-edge scientific program, the Annual Meeting includes a variety of social events that provide ample opportunities to network with colleagues from around the world. Seville is an exciting city to explore and Andalusia a fascinating region to visit, if you can afford the time. So there are plenty of reasons to come to next year’s MASCC/ISOO Annual Meeting!

All the best,

Dr Andrew Davies
