EACR 2021 Virtual Congress - Innovative Cancer Science: Better Outcomes Through Research

Throughout its 52-year history, the Congress of the European Association for Cancer Research has evolved with changing needs, always exploring the best and most exciting cancer research from Europe and beyond.

Considering the development of the COVID-19 pandemic around the globe we have decided to organize the EACR 2021 Congress as a Virtual Event. We’ve done this to protect the safety and well-being of Congress participants and the general public, but it’s also an exciting opportunity to explore new ways of learning and networking.

We're inviting you — wherever you are — to join us for the EACR 2021 Virtual Congress from 09-12 June 2021.

The EACR 2021 Virtual Congress will deliver all the excellent science and networking opportunities you’ve come to expect from the EACR Congress in both live and on-demand sessions. Although we’re disappointed we can’t meet personally in 2021, going online means we can engage in new ways and reach an even broader part of our research community.

  • Participants can enjoy interactive and engaging live experiences, as well as new on-demand content, available at your fingertips and in your own time and pace after the event for several months.
  • The Congress program will remain packed with in-depth educational sessions, plenary lectures delivered from around the globe, state-of-the-art scientific symposia, award lectures, e-posters, industry sessions and virtual company showcases. The quality of the invited speakers is second-to-none and includes a Nobel Laureate.
  • Abstract submission is open: Present your research at the EACR 2021 Virtual Congress by submitting your abstract on the abstracts page (deadline 8 March 2021). There are loads of chances to present your work including oral presentations, Top Abstracts session, moderated poster session (Posters in the Spotlight) and digital abstract and e-poster galleries.
  • Networking and interactivity has always been a cornerstone of the EACR Congress and 2021 will be no different, with lots of ways for the research community to reconnect through interactive and social activities. This includes informal meetings after each talk for speakers and audience to interact as they would at the podium after an in-person talk.

We look forward to welcoming you to the EACR 2021 Virtual Congress. With your participation we will make the 2021 Congress a vibrant and exciting event!
