The SIOG Annual Conference will take place in Warsaw, Poland, from November 9-11, 2017. The mission of the SIOG conference is to bring together international experts in geriatric oncology to present the latest evidence based research in the care of older adults with cancer. The theme of the program for this year’s conference is “From Research to Practice: incorporating geriatric oncology into patient care”. It will include multidisciplinary sessions on solid tumours, haematological malignancies, new therapies, geriatric assessment, supportive and palliative care.


The SIOG Annual Conference also includes special sessions dedicated to the development of allied health professionals and junior faculty with the attribution of the SIOG Nursing & Allied Health and the SIOG Young Investigator awards.

Plus, several sessions on the general program are highlighting very interesting topics for nurses and allied health professionals (eg. medication management, communication skills) but next to this, it is a pleasure to announce that a first joint session between EONS and SIOG will be organized (more information will follow). Special lower registration fees are applicable for nurses and available on the SIOG website (


This 17th SIOG Annual Conference promises to be a memorable meeting. The late registration deadline is 28 September, 2017. Don’t miss it!
