17th ECCO - 38th ESMO - 32nd ESTRO
European Cancer Congress 2013
The 17th ECCO - 38th ESMO - 32nd ESTRO European Cancer Congress was held in Amsterdam, 27 September - 1 October 2013. EONS is a founding member of ECCO so this was also your nursing congress in 2013.
It was the latest in a prestigious biennial series of meetings that have been growing in appeal and outreach across all disciplines and organisations since its inception in 1981. Involving ECCO, ESMO, ESTRO, ESSO, EACR, EONS and SIOPE, the European Cancer Congress forms a powerful combination for endorsing multidisciplinarity.
And the statistics report demonstrates that participation is consistently expanding so that the meeting has become the largest, truly multidisciplinary gathering in Europe. Delivering a pioneering programme, this Congress reinforced multidisciplinarity as optimal professional efficiency in practice.
The full statistics report from the Congress, including delegate demography, abstracts, media coverage, web traffic, app activity and social media engagement are now availabile.
