The theme for AORTIC 2013 is “Cancer in Africa: Bridging Science and Humanity” and the conference will focus on all aspects of cancer care and management: from prevention to early diagnoses to treatment and palliation. It will be held in Durban, South Africa from 21-24 November 2013.

AORTIC is committed to making cancer control a priority on the health care agendas of African countries. The programme will promote and facilitate an international exchange of research and practical information among practitioners working in cancer care, in Africa and around the world.

The target audience for AORTIC 2013 is anyone interested in the cancer burden in Africa, including physicians, scientists, researchers, nurses, social workers, and representatives of NGOs and companies in the cancer sector.

Registration for AORTIC 2013 will open in January 2013 with discounts for AORTIC members and “early birds”. Accommodation at the conference hotels can also be booked through the registration process.

AORTIC 2013 will be an excellent opportunity to present and discuss your research in a multidisciplinary forum of cancer professionals. Abstract submissions for oral and poster presentations will open in February 2013.
