Welcome from the Chair

 AlanDear Colleagues, 

On behalf of the Organising Committee and The Skin Cancer Foundation, I wish to extend an invitation to you and your networks to participate in the 17th World Congress on Cancers of the Skin 2018®, to be held in Sydney at the International Convention and Exhibition Centre from 15 – 18 August 2018.

The “World Congress on Cancers of the Skin” has become a major interdisciplinary and influential Congress for clinicians and basic scientists working in the challenging fields of Melanoma and Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer. This exciting Congress endeavours to bring over 1,000 attendees together from across the world.

It is our pleasure to host the 2018 Congress in the newly revamped International Convention Centre in Sydney, Australia. We feel privileged and honoured that many of the world’s leading experts in the field will actively participate and inspire attendees.

As the organisers of this Congress we invite you to share with us days of scientific communication in the iconic city of Sydney, Australia. Sydney itself is Australia’s most spectacular city and is perched directly on the stunning Sydney Harbour. WCCS 2018 attendees will be able to travel by ferry to many of the scenic attractions of Sydney, including Manly Beach, Luna Park and the famous Taronga Zoo with the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House a short stroll away.

We encourage you to save the dates in your calendar and register your expression of interest today, this way you can be kept up to date with the latest information and program news. We look forward to welcoming you to WCCS 2018 in Sydney Australia.

Yours sincerely,
Professor Alan Cooper OAM

International Congress Hosts – The Skin Cancer Foundation 

Since its founding in 1979, The Skin Cancer Foundation has set the standard for educating the public and the medical profession about skin cancer, its prevention by means of sun protection, the need for early detection, and prompt, effective treatment. It is the only international organisation devoted solely to combating the world’s most common cancer, now occurring at epidemic levels. The Foundation has always recommended following a complete sun protection regimen that includes seeking shade and covering up with clothing, including a wide-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses, in addition to daily sunscreen use.
