It gives us great pleasure to invite you to AORTIC’s 10th International Cancer Conference entitled "Roadmap to Cancer Control in Africa". Held every two years, the AORTIC conferences provide a unique platform to bring together leading African and international health care professionals in cancer care, advocates, leaders in Government, and various members of the international health industry and global cancer community to meet and discuss cancer-related matters and proffer solutions to significantly reduce the impact of cancer in Africa and indeed around the world. To make a difference, AORTIC invites you, as a committed member of the international cancer control community, to contribute to and listen to world-renowned speakers, to network with colleagues and professionals from all over the world, and to be exposed to the latest research findings in the cancer arena.
Set in the vibrant, cosmopolitan city of Marrakech, Morocco, the conference aims to build on the solid scientific foundations established through previous AORTIC conferences and will offer a scientific programme covering a diverse range of topics related to cancer control in Africa. Our aim is to equip attendees with diverse tools that can be implemented in resourceful ways.
Do register for AORTIC 2015. Our carefully packaged programme offers you a unique opportunity to change the trajectory of cancer in Africa and the rest of the world. We look forward to welcoming you to Marrakech, Morocco in November 2015.

The AORTIC 2015 Conference Secretariat has selected a range of hotels for delegates to choose from and has negotiated guaranteed rates. The hotels are near the conference venue: most are within walking distance and there are taxi’s readily available between the various hotels and the venue for the delegate’s own cost (between MAD10 and MAD30 one way). There is an option suited to every delegate’s preferences and budget, from good 3-star accommodation to a world-class 5-star establishment. Delegates can reserve accommodation at one of the official conference hotels by completing the Accommodation Booking Form and returning it to email@example.com.
Delegates are welcome to make their own accommodation arrangements at a B&B, hostel or guesthouse. Please note the Conference Secretariat can only make bookings at the official conference hotels and cannot be responsible for accommodation booked independently by delegates. Delegates are encouraged to book accommodation close to the conference venue, Palais des Congrès de Marrakech.
