Abstract Information & Submission Page

ABSTRACT REVIEW IS UNDERWAY BUT LATE SUBMISSIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED.  ALSO ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS FOR POSTER PRESENTATIONS EXTENDED TO JUNE 15TH!

We have received many abstracts which promise oral and poster presentations of outstanding caliber. The WICC 2019 Scientific Committee is coordinating abstract review and will be in touch with those who have submitted by mid June to inform submissions of their success and will provide next steps. Late submissions may still be accepted through consultation and communications with Conference Coordinator Vernon Chiefmoon and Conference Chair Dr. Angeline Letendre.

At this time we are inviting abstract submissions for poster presentations until June 15th.

The theme for the conference is ‘Respect, Reconciliation, and Reciprocity: Connecting Across Knowledge Systems’.

The following topic areas are suggested as guidelines however abstracts across the full spectrum of cancer research with Indigenous peoples are welcome. While we invite scientific abstracts from practitioners, allied health professionals, researchers, community health workers, and Indigenous communities, we are also seeking submissions from knowledge users and advocates.
