Welcome Letter

​Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The 47th Congress of the International Society of Paediatric Oncology (SIOP) will take place October 8-11, 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa.

SIOP's aim is to improve and optimise treatments throughout the world. SIOP's vision is that no child should die of cancer.

In keeping with the tradition of previous SIOP congresses, the scientific programme will comprise of plenary sessions, guest lectures, committee/group sessions, meet the expert sessions, free and proffered paper sessions.

We would like to invite, and encourage, all healthcare professionals involved in work on cancer in children, adolescents and young adults to join us at the upcoming congress and to contribute to its high scientific quality.

We have no doubt that networking with your colleagues, on an international scale, will result in a creative exchange of ideas and be personally rewarding.

Cape Town, one of the largest cities in South Africa, is a thriving multi-cultural city and a venue not to be missed. We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting metropolis, and to a very successful congress.

Yours sincerely,
