International Symposium on Late Complications After Childhood Cancer

Thursday, June 15 - Saturday, June 17, 2023
Emory Convention Center Hotel, Atlanta, GA, USA

Symposium Overview

In 2022 the North American Symposium on Late Complications After Childhood Cancer (NASLCCC) and the European Symposium on Late Complications After Childhood Cancer (ESLCCC) merged efforts to provide an international forum for survivorship clinicians and researchers.

The newly branded International Symposium on Late Complications After Childhood Cancer (ISLCCC) aims to feature emerging research results and insights from real world clinical experience to promote research collaborations and improve survivorship care throughout the world. The symposium provides a venue for the multidisciplinary exchange of innovative ideas among clinicians and researchers engaged in pediatric cancer survivorship clinical care and/or research. The symposium historically includes global participation of approximately 300 attendees from Europe, Asia, Oceania, South America, Canada, and the United States and will be of interest to oncologists, psychologists, social workers, and survivorship clinicians and researchers. The 2023 ISLCCC will be an in-person event.  For registrants to the symposium, web-based access to recorded sessions will be provided after the meeting.
