Report on the 2nd EACR-AACR-SIC Conference

The second edition of the EACR-AACR-SIC Conference “The Challenges of Optimising Immuno and Targeted Therapies: From Cancer Biology to the Clinic” was held once again in Florence, Italy, 24-27 June 2017.

The conference was a great success both in terms of the number of participants and the great feedback received. The conference brought together 845 participants from 61 countries. We wish to thank the 32 speakers who gave impressive talks throughout the conference and the 604 delegates who had the opportunity to present their poster.

Over 97% of participants would recommend this conference to others

The feedback we have received so far from participants is excellent: they particularly highlighted the quality of the scientific content (100% satisfaction) and 90% thought that the conference provided many opportunities for networking, interaction and discussion with fellow researchers. The Meet-the-Expert session was particularly appreciated by all attendees: similar networking opportunities are available at other EACR conferences – check it out

“This conference was a perfect platform to present my research. It provided up-to-date information on targeted and immunological approaches in cancer. Leading experts in the field presented the latest achievements of multidisciplinary research.”

“The conference provided ideal platform for me to share my research and to solicit feedback from the experts in my field. It was a perfect place to learn about multiple areas of cancer research and current breakthroughs in the field.”

“Conferences like EAS have opportunities for attendees to mix and mingle, form new relationships, and strengthen existing ones, forcing you to break out of your comfort zone”

It was the second time that EACR, AACR and SIC, had collaborated in organising a conference and we are already looking forward to the next one!
