Accreditation Statement
The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education activities for physicians.

Credit Designation Statement
The AACR has designated this live activity for a maximum of 17.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Credit certification for individual sessions may vary, dependent upon compliance with the ACCME Accreditation Criteria. The final number of credits may vary from the maximum number indicated above.

Claiming (CME) Credit
Physicians and other health care professionals seeking AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM for this live continuing medical education activity must complete the CME Request for Credit Survey (available here as the meeting approaches) by Wednesday, March 25, 2015.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

The field of cancer systems biology has emerged to address the increasing challenge of cancer as a complex, multifactorial disease using sophisticated model-based approaches, ranging from relatively coarse genome-wide regulatory and signaling networks to detailed kinetic models of key pathways. These networks and pathways are responsible for implementing cancer-relevant mechanisms and for processing aberrant signals from the spectrum of somatic mutations and heritable variants that contribute to tumor initiation, progression, and drug sensitivity.  The ability to assemble and interrogate such cancer models is the direct result of the availability of large sample-matched collections of molecular profiles from thousands of human malignancies, as made available by large consortia, such as TCGA, ICG, and  TARGET, among others.

This AACR Special Conference complements and expands the topics explored by the AACR Special Conference on Translation of the Cancer Genome, with which it shares a joint day of sessions, to focus on new innovations in the translation of genomic data using model-based and other systems biology approaches. One of the conference highlights is a unique day of sessions and networking held jointly with the AACR Special Conference on Translation of the Cancer Genome. Presenters will explore new directions in these overlapping and rapidly evolving fields to promote new opportunities for transdisciplinary collaborations. As such, it will appeal to basic, translational, computational and clinical scientists from both academia and industry.Attendees may register for one or both conferences.

Attendees of the AACR Special Conference on Translation of the Cancer Genome (A) will joined by the attendees of the AACR Special Conference on Computational and Systems Biology of Cancer (B) for a keynote address and reception on Sunday, Feb. 8, then for joint sessions on Monday, Feb. 9. During the joint sessions, overlapping themes in the areas of patient stratification, big data, and network-based cancer biology will be discussed to enhance interaction between colleagues across both disciplines.

The conference will be held at the World-renowned Fairmont San Francisco Hotel. With a panoramic view of the City and the Bay from high atop Nob Hill, The Fairmont San Francisco Hotel presents an unmatched blend of luxurious accommodations. Centrally located, this San Francisco hotel is a short cable car trip from the bustling Downtown, Financial District, Union Square and Fisherman's Wharf.

A reduced conference rate of $229 per night is available to conference attendees until Friday, Jan. 16, 2015. Reservations may be made onlinebelow or by calling 800-441-1414 and requesting the AACR Joint Topic Conference special rate. The hotel will accept reservations at the reduced conference rate on a space-available basis until the cut-off date. Reservations made after this date will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis at the nearest available rate. Applied to the room charge will be state and local taxes, currently 16.32%. Reservations must be guaranteed with a major credit card at the time of reservation. A deposit equal to one night’s stay will be charged to the credit card at the time the reservation is made. Cancellations will be accepted at no charge until 24 hours in advance of arrival. Note that check-in time is 3 p.m., and check-out time is noon.

Scientific Content Up to Date
Submission Info

Authors who submit an abstract of a paper confirm that they have not previously published these data, that they have 

not previously presented them at a large national annual scientific meeting, and that they are not planning to present or 

publish them prior to the dates of this AACR conference.

The Conference Co-Chairpersons will evaluate the scientific quality of the submitted abstracts on the basis of the following 

criteria: novelty of the research, significance of the findings, and clarity. Authors should be particularly cognizant of the 

importance of setting forth the objectives and hypotheses of the study in a clear, succinct manner and of summarizing the 

new, unpublished results. If an abstract is poorly written such that the Conference Co-Chairpersons cannot determine its 

novelty and importance, the paper will not be accepted for presentation at the conference.

Authors submitting abstracts for presentation at this AACR conference should consider the following:

1. Abstracts must describe in a succinct manner the purposes and results of the research so that the quality, 

originality, and comprehensiveness of the work can be evaluated by the Conference Co-Chairpersons. Each 

abstract should contain: (a) an introductory sentence indicating the purposes of the study; (b) a brief description 

of pertinent experimental procedures; (c) a summary of the new, unpublished data; and (d) a statement of the 

conclusions. Authors must accept sole responsibility for the statements in their abstracts. American spelling 

should be used throughout.

2. Titles should be indicative of the content of the abstract. All words necessary to identify the subject matter should 

be included in the title to facilitate electronic retrieval (if applicable). Avoid nonstandard abbreviations in abstract 


3. Abbreviations may be used in the body of an abstract if they are defined at their first mention in the text. Complex 

therapeutic regimens must be identified. 

4. The combined length of the abstract title and body should not exceed 4,000 characters (including spaces). The 

author and institution list is not included in the character limit. The online submitter will not accept abstracts that 

exceed this limit. 

5. PLEASE NOTE: The AACR is committed to the advancement of cancer research and the cure and prevention of 

cancer through the facilitation of communication and full dissemination of knowledge among scientists and others 

dedicated to the cancer problem. Therefore, the AACR requires strict compliance with the following regulation: 

o When biological or chemical data pertaining to chemical entities are an integral part of the research, the 

chemical structure, method of preparation, and patent or reference numbers must be presented. If for any 

reason this information cannot be provided when the paper is presented at the conference, the abstract 

on this work should not be submitted for consideration. 

6. Because of administrative and time constraints, supplemental data submitted along with the abstract cannot be 

transmitted to the Conference Co-Chairpersons for review. 

7. The accuracy of the submitted abstract is the responsibility of the authors. Every effort will be made to publish the 

abstract exactly as submitted. Authors should prepare and proofread their abstracts carefully prior to submission. 

Errors made on your submitted abstract are likely to appear in print. 

8. Authors are strongly encouraged to print a hard copy of their abstract for their records before submitting. 

9. All PRESENTERS must register to attend this AACR conference. 

10. If an abstract is accepted and the PRESENTER does not register, the abstract may be withdrawn. 

11. Abstract submitters will receive an initial notification of receipt in the form of a confirmation screen. Notifications of 

abstract receipt will be sent to the ABSTRACT SUBMITTER and PRESENTER.
