Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of the local organizing committee, it gives us great pleasure indeed to extend to you our warm invitation to attend the 13th African Conference of the International Society of Paediatric Oncology that is planned to be held in, Cairo, Egypt on 6-9 March 2019.

The 13th SIOP Africa congress will be held in the luxury JW Marriott Hotel Cairo. This site offers a truly immersive experience, with five-star accommodation, award-winning service and a prime location in the city’s Heliopolis district. Our conference will be held in Tutankhamen hall which can accommodate up to 700 participants beside 2 smaller parallel halls for parallel sessions. All are equipped with all required infrastructure for symposiums, exhibitions, and breaks.

The theme this year is “Joining Hands toward Cure of Children with Cancer in Africa”. The Faculty will include distinguished national, African and international experts in the field. We invites researchers from around the world to submit abstracts for presentation at our 13th meeting in CAIRO.
The meeting will feature a wide range of exciting talks, discussions, and networking opportunities with experts, researchers, and up-and-coming leaders in the field of Pediatric Oncology.

The Scientific Committee, under the superb guidance of Professor Alaa Haddad and Emad Ebid, has pulled together an impressive Programme featuring the best clinical papers, best of scientific research and keynote speakers on an array of different topics relating to children with cancer.

We are particularly happy because we consider this a very good opportunity for many African physicians, and physicians from all over the world working on pediatric cancer to meet with eminent SIOP experts and exchange new ideas, experience and knowledge which will undoubtedly benefit us all.
Registration & Abstracts submission is opened now and until the 1st of December 2018, please visit our website for further information and to follow up with our news and updates.

Beside our interesting scientific program, The Local Organizing Committee has worked very hard to ensure that your stay, and your accompanying guest, will be more than relaxing and memorable one.  I hope to welcome you all to the Opening Ceremony, for classical Western and Arabic music. Perhaps you wish to join us at the Annual Dinner Party to take place in the atmosphere of the thousand and One Night theme, under a genuine Bedouin tent, overlooking the Pyramids. We look forward to exceeding your every expectation during your visit to Cairo whether scientifically or culturally

Above all, let me remind you that Egypt is renowned for its friendliness to all people.  We welcome you to experience Egypt, the land of the pharaohs and the land of the pyramids.  Join us then on March the 6th till the 9th, 2019 here in Cairo and experience the true Egypt.
Egypt would be proud to extend its warm hospitality to all attendees of the next African SlOP Meeting in 2019.
