Dear Friends and Colleagues

We are extremely excited to invite you to the 18th SASMO & SASCRO Congress to be held in Johannesburg from the 4 to 6 August 2017. This congress is really special in that it will be held in conjunction with the South African Children’s Cancer Study Group (SACCSG) for the first time and there will be a dedicated paediatric oncology programme – this will hopefully be the start of a long and mutually beneficial relationship between the adult and paediatric oncologists.

The conference will take place at South Africa's leading event venue, The Sandton Convention Centre (SCC), in the financial hub of Johannesburg. Located in the vibrant business district of Sandton in Northern Johannesburg and within easy reach of the Gautrain and OR Tambo International Airport, the Sandton Convention Centre is flanked by a number of leading hotels, sophisticated shopping centres and entertainment complexes. – hopefully these will not be too distracting to those attending.

The congress will have morning educational sessions, followed by plenary sessions and disease specific proffered papers chosen on academic merit.

International speakers have been invited for their academic excellence and willingness to engage in the congress. There will be sessions which deal with education and research which is relevant internationally as well as locally.

The Congress will be rewarding and enjoyable. We look forward to welcoming you to the Congress in Johannesburg.

Please return the Intention Form to us as soon as possible.
