The SIOG 2017 Annual Conference organizers are in the process of applying for CME credits (ECMEC) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).

Please check back on a regular basis for more information.

European accreditation 

European Accreditation is granted by the EACCME in order to allow participants who attend the above-mentioned activity to validate their credits in their own country. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS),

EACCME credits 

Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity. The EACCME credit system is based on 1 ECMEC per hour with a maximum of 3 ECMECs for half a day and 6 ECMECs for a full-day event.

Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit can be found at

Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognized by the UEMS-EACCME for ECMEC credits are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to join us for the 2017 SIOG Annual Conference which will take place in Warsaw, Poland from November 9-11, 2017.

The Society's mission statement is that the goal of SIOG is to foster the development of health professionals in the field of geriatric oncology, in order to optimize treatment of older adults with cancer. SIOG promotes these efforts in three important directions.

These are education, clinical practice and research. The annual conference helps foster these efforts by bringing together international experts in geriatric oncology to present the latest evidence based research in the care of older adults with cancer and to provide an educational opportunity for clinicians. Every year, the members of various Committees of SIOG work hard to provide an outstanding and attractive program to enhance and expand the scientific and educational sessions for a large number of international experts in geriatric oncology.

The worldwide population is aging, and cancer is a disease of aging. Thus, there is an anticipated rise in the number of older adults with cancer. In order to provide high quality, evidence-based care for this growing group of individuals, it is essential to meld the principles of Geriatrics and Oncology.

The theme of the 2017 conference, “From research to practice: incorporating geriatric oncology into patient care” will set the tone for the presentations. Due to the dedicated work of multiple investigators in Geriatric Oncology, there is more and more data accumulating on patient assessment and therapeutics particularly over the past few years. There is a need to incorporate this new information into practice and help form the basis of future studies. The sessions will emphasize the optimal ways clinicians can use the information to better assess patients and help make treatment decisions to maximize benefit. Research presentations will also focus in this area.

The programme will include multidisciplinary sessions on solid tumours, haematological malignancies, new therapies, geriatric assessment, supportive care needs and an educational forum dedicated to nurses. The SIOG Annual Conference also includes special sessions in collaboration with industry to present the latest therapeutic data and their application to the older adults. SIOG is also dedicated to the development of allied health professionals and junior faculty with the attribution of the SIOG Nursing & Allied Health and the SIOG Young Investigator awards.

Warsaw, nurturing over 400 years of pride as a capital, is Poland’s largest city and an economic, political, and cultural centre. The city of Chopin is a bustling metropolis and features an unforgettable history. A city where a fourth of the terrain is covered by parkland and a city of culture for all tastes and budgets. As a visitor you will be delighted by the city’s diversity – from renaissance buildings to futuristic skyscrapers. Warsaw is the youngest European Old Town (on the UNESCO list) – rebuilt from the post‑war rubble. As lovers of culture, art and entertainment, you will find much to enjoy in Warsaw: walking around the Old Town to see the Royal Castle with its two original Rembrandt canvases, as well as the Cathedral and the Mermaid Statue; enjoying a stroll along the Royal Route, packed with shops and charming cafes; visiting a prime example of social‑realism architecture, the tallest building in Poland – the Palace of Culture and Science – with its viewing terrace on the 30th floor looking out over the entire city. Warsaw is a city to explore, full of surprises.

So join us in Warsaw for the 17th SIOG Annual Conference. We look forward to seeing you there!

Scientific Awards

The aim of the SIOG Young Investigator Award is to promote research in the field of geriatric oncology and to recognise the outstanding contribution of these investigators in understanding, preventing and treating cancer in older patients. This is the first award to be established in geriatric oncology at an international level.

Eligibility criteria

To be eligible for the award candidates must

be a SIOG member

be young / new in the field of geriatric oncology and / or working as a trainee in any discipline that is involved with treatment of older cancer patients (e.g. surgery, radiotherapy, medical oncology, urology, pulmonology, haematology, etcetera) and / or PhD student, postdoctoral fellow or researcher (Young SIOG welcomes all SIOG members who feel addressed by these terms, and does not work with an upper age limit)
