Welcome Message from ACOS President
It is a great pleasure to announce the upcoming 13th International Conference of the Asian Clinical Oncology Society (ACOS), which will be held on 23-25 February 2018 in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
ACOS was established on October 1991 by Tetsuo Taguchi, a professor emeritus at Osaka University with a group of doctors from several Asian countries. ACOS aims to ensure Asian cancer patients the current best practice by implementing multidisciplinary treatments.
The ACOS international conference is held every two years in Asia Pacific. We have been devoted to the care of cancer patients and to the development of scientific knowledge by having the scientific exchanges and sharing the best and most up-to-date information with Asian countries.
Now we need your cooperation to strengthen ACOS itself as an Asian leading cancer association by having strong academic partnerships with major international organizations involved in cancer treatment and research. Therefore, we hope that many of you will participate in the 13th ACOS International Conference in Chiang Mai. ACOS executive and council members also promise the combined efforts of each member nation’s cancer-related associations to make the conference a great success.
We are very much looking forward to meeting you in Chiang Mai, the alluring city filled with natural beauty and ancient wonders.
