Convenor's Welcome

COSA’s Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) is considered the premier gathering of cancer health professionals in our region each year. 
Delegates to the meeting include clinicians and researchers representing medical and radiation oncologists, cancer surgeons, nurses, pharmacists, and allied health workers.


COSA is proud to announce that the 41st ASM will be held in conjunction with the UICC World Cancer Congress (WCC) in the first week of December 2014 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. 
The COSA ASM will be held Tuesday 2nd to Thursday 4th December, and WCC 4th to 6th December, with Thursday 4th being a joint day. We anticipate that delegates will register for either the COSA ASM or the WCC, with a discount offered if people register for both, and on the joint day delegates will be free to move between sessions.


The theme for COSA’s 41st ASM will highlight cancer survivorship, supportive care and palliative care – all important areas of interest for COSA members, and hopefully attractive to WCC delegates also. 
Our disease theme will concentrate on lung cancer and metastases.


Convenor Mei Krishnasamy croppedCOSA has a strong tradition of collaborating with other societies to deliver successful conferences in areas of mutual interest. 
Our partnership with IPOS in 2012 enabled COSA delegates to attend a world class psycho-oncology conference in Australia.  We anticipate the UICC collaboration will present opportunities even more vast. 
As COSA President Elect I am excited about this opportunity and hope to share the experience with you in Melbourne in December 2014.


Associate Professor Mei Krishnasamy

Scientific Content Up to Date
Submission Info
  • Maximum text length allowed is 300 words in length including sub-headings. To assist your preparation, abstracts may be structured under the sub-headings Aims, Methods, Results, Conclusions. The sub-headings must be concise, with only the first word starting with a capital letter.
  • Reports of completed studies are preferred, and will be given preference in selecting oral presentations, especially over abstracts which do not report results but indicate that they will be reported at the meeting or mere descriptions of trial methodology. Results of research will be given preference over descriptions of services for oral presentations.
  • Abstracts reporting quantitative studies should contain the planned accrual target and the actual number of patients recruited, levels of significance and confidence intervals of results. Abstracts of qualitative research should indicate how they chose their sample size (e.g. data saturation) and the methodology of analysis.
  • Abstracts will be “blinded” to the reviewers. They will not be able to see the authoring or organisation information.  Submitters must not assume that there will be knowledge of the previous work of a group or strength of a research group or researcher.
  • Most of the submitted abstracts will be allocated posters as there will only be a limited number of slots for oral presentations. The best posters will be selected for specific poster presentation sessions with a discussant.
  • Images are not accepted in abstracts.
  • Examples of exemplary abstracts: Please click here to review examples of an exemplary abstract, and abstracts which would not meet the standard required for acceptance
