On behalf of the entire IFODS Scientific Committee, it is our honor to announce the second edition of IFODS, which will be held from the 11th to the 13th of JUNE 2019. Following the success of the first edition in 2018, and thanks to you, your presence, your commitment and your participation, a great number of our fellow oncologists and many of our partners asked us to organize another IFODS and it is for this reason that we have decided to change the venue and opt for a more symbolic location: THE « MAISON INTERNATIONALE » AT THE HEART OF THE « CITÉ UNIVERSITAIRE DE PARIS ».
Faced with the staggering rise in the incidence of cancer, fortunately offset by outstanding innovation in the area of cancer research, both scientific and therapeutic, in which France plays an exemplary role internationally, more than ever we must gather our efforts to fight this disease. Today IFODS is the only French oncology conference which brings together the majority of the scientific societies devoting to cancer patients with strong relations with other international scientific societies such as ASCO.
This year, once again, the « Société Française du Cancer » (SFC) will provide its commitment to IFODS by opening the conference with an extraordinary session on « The Future of Oncology », organized with the support of scientists, young oncologists and other international scientific societies. IFODS is deeply honored to welcome within its scientific committee and during several sessions the patients and patient’s organizations who can not only benefit from learning during the conference, but can also find any for sharing and discussing with their healthcare professionals.
France, maintains a position of excellence and remains a key player in the area of oncology on a global scale, we are a benchmark, representative conference, which focuses the strong ties to ASCO and this year we hope with ESMO and AACR as well. We would be delighted if you will all be able to join us for the Second Edition of IFODS, from the 11th to the 13 of June 2019, to get an optimal training, share with an exceptional panel of French and International Experts in Oncology field.
We thank you in advance for your support and your participation.
