    • 13AM_CFA_text_Layout 1 8/28/12 12:32 PM Page 3 Why You Should Attend It has been said around the world that the AACR Annual Meeting drives the cancer agenda. This meeting brings together the best and latest findings in all major areas of cancer research. Through plenary sessions, symposia, forums, educational sessions, methods workshops, poster presentations, conversations with experts, and networking, attendees walk away with a wealth of new information, more connections, and renewed energy, inspiration, and focus in their work. A past attendee notes: “Overall, the meeting was inspirational and should lead to many fruitful collaborations. Its a unique opportunity for the cancer research community to communicate ideas across cancer disciplines…” Last year, nearly 17,000 participants from 70 countries gathered to discuss over 6,100 abstracts and to hear invited presentations from 750 speakers on new and significant discoveries in basic science, translational research, clinical trials, and population sciences. The 2012 Annual Meeting featured: • 6,162 proffered papers presented in 210 poster sessions and 30 minisymposia • 267 sessions accredited for continuing medical education for a total of 45.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ • 50 educational sessions and methods workshops for those seeking a foundation of knowledge in rapidly developing areas • 14 professional advancement activities covering topics such as grant writing, getting your research published, and the mentor-mentee relationship • 843 webcasts of the scientific talks available to attendees and subscribers • 458 exhibiting companies in 779 booths at the exhibition • Over 21 trillion media impressions resulting from press coverage of hot topics in many major outlets including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, HealthDay, Yahoo! News, Associated Press, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, U.S. News & World Report, Huffington Post, Gizmodo, Reuters, The Economist, and more What You Can’t Afford to Miss Be a part of the AACR Annual Meeting 2013 so you won’t miss: • The premier meeting in cancer research where you are among the best and the brightest in the cancer field from around the world • Participation in abstract submissions and presentations • The latest developments in basic science, translational research, clinical trials, and population sciences • Our online itinerary planner that allows you to search and schedule the topics, speakers, and posters that are of interest to you • A multitude of networking events and professional development activities, plus the annual Cancer and Biomedical Research Career Fair 3
    • 13AM_CFA_text_Layout 1 8/28/12 12:32 PM Page 4 Dear Members, Colleagues, and Friends of the AACR, It is our pleasure to announce and invite you to attend the 104th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research, to be held April 6-10, 2013, in Washington, DC. As always, this AACR Annual Meeting will highlight the latest and most exciting discoveries in every area of cancer research, and it will provide a unique opportunity for investigators from all over the world to meet and interact. Being in Washington, DC, at this time will give us a special opportunity for our collective voices to be heard, and several sessions and events will emphasize the vital importance of reaffirming our Nation’s commitment to the conquest of cancer. The Annual Meeting scientific program will feature daily plenary sessions, major symposia, minisymposia, forums, educational sessions, methods workshops, poster sessions, “Meet-the-Expert” sessions, “Current Concepts in Organ Site Research” sessions, “Current Concepts in Diagnostics and Therapeutics” sessions, and an exciting new series of sessions focused on “Current Concepts in Epidemiology and Prevention.” Based on the huge success of last year’s sessions on cutting-edge, science-based clinical trials, we are again planning to hold several sessions featuring presentations of new data on cutting-edge clinical trials along with commentaries on the implications of these trials for improved patient care. We will also be featuring a poster session on “Clinical Trials in Progress.” In addition, for the second year, we are planning a track devoted to regulatory science and policy. This multidisciplinary program is being developed through the devoted efforts of our team of Co-Chairpersons, whose names are listed in this publication. Together, we are assembling an outstanding roster of speakers who will update participants on their latest research findings. Along with the hundreds of invited talks, we will feature over 6,000 proffered papers from researchers all over the world. We want to thank the Program Committee Co-Chairpersons for their incredible expertise and guidance in shaping an innovative program that will be enjoyable as well as educational. With the accelerating pace of discoveries in the basic, translational, and clinical sciences, due in large part to the advent of new technologies, cancer researchers are making rapid progress that is having significant patient benefit. It is clear that in the near future even greater opportunities for the prevention, management, and cures for all types of cancer will abound. We are confident that attending the AACR Annual Meeting will give you renewed energy, inspiration, and focus in your work. Please register early and submit your abstract by the November 15, 2012, deadline. We look forward to seeing you in Washington, DC. Sincerely, Frank McCormick, Ph.D., F.R.S., D.Sc.
