  • Welcome Message

    On behalf of the organizing committee of the International Asian Conference of Cancer Screening (IACCS), we are pleased to announce that the 12th IACCS will be held on 13th November, 2021 online. The IACCS has successful meetings previously running in Asian countries, and it acts as an important platform to exchange experiences of cancer screening in Asia since 2004. The meeting this year is co-organized with TDDW, Taiwan Digestive Disease Week 2021.

     

    The topic of this meeting will be focused on the decades-long experience of implementation, quality control, outcome evaluations and novel development reached by the Taiwan Nationwide Screening Program for colorectal cancer. Besides, as everyone knows, the COVID-19 pandemic has taken millions of lives and caused a lot of impact on regular care and prevention for cancers. Thus, we would like to focus on the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of cancers in this meeting.

     

    Unlike conventional meetings, we have scheduled short speeches and left plenty of time for moderators, speakers and participants to have discussion. The meeting highlights are as follows.

    • Implementation and quality control of CRC screening
    • Outcome evaluations and new development of CRC screening
    • Impact of COVID-19 on all cancer screening

     

    Welcome all distinguished guests and look forward to your participation!
