Held in conjunction with 51st Congress of The International Society of Pediatric Oncology

We are happy to announce that the annual Childhood Cancer International (CCI) conference is in Europe again, this time in Lyon, the 3 rd largest city in France, where Auguste and Louis Lumière invented the cinematograph. It will be an excellent occasion for a double celebration:
1. 50 years ago, in Madrid, Spain, the SIOP community was established;
2. 25 years ago, in Valencia, also in Spain, ICCCPO – now CCI was founded with the mission of “sharing information and experience between parent groups around the world, and with all others involved in the treatment and care of children with cancer, in order to ensure the best possible access to treatment and care for children with cancer everywhere in the world.”
The conference will be held at the Lyon Convention Centre. Information about the Convention Centre can be found here.

Preliminary Program

In order to simplify the organization of the event and everyone’s agenda, but still maintain the importance and pleasure of networking, we have decided to combine the CCI Meet and Greet and CCI Gala Dinner into one event only (on Tuesday 22 nd ). Doing so, will also allow to attend SIOP’s networking event to those who want.

See below for the broad schedule to help with your travel arrangements:

We look forward to continuing these conversations and welcoming you all to Lyon in October, for a memorable and enriching learning experience.
