EBCC-11 Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to take part in the 11th edition of the European Breast Cancer Conference (EBCC-11), which will take place on 21–23 March 2018 in Barcelona, Spain.

The aim of the European Breast Cancer Conferences is to support the establishment of a European multidisciplinary platform for scientific exchanges on all aspects of breast cancer, from bench to bedside.

As the largest Breast Cancer Conference outside the USA, the EBCC provides a unique multidisciplinary setting for all professionals with a common interest in breast cancer to discuss, debate, inform and educate themselves about this evolving disease landscape. Breast cancer stakeholders from over 90 countries will come together to share the most recent scientific knowledge.

EBCC will once again take place in the context of very tangible advances made for patients in prevention, diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, and advances driven by research in recent years, emphasising the successful application of a multidisciplinary approach. This latest edition is firmly based again on an all-inclusive vision of breast cancer and brings together clinicians, scientists, patient representatives and health professionals of diverse profiles to tackle key issues facing patients throughout the continuum of the breast cancer journey. The programme will highlight the importance of teamwork and interactions between all professionals and specialities involved in breast cancer. We are also pleased EBCC11 will take account of the very successful ‘Multidisciplinary Teams in the Real World’.

Amongst the very stimulating, educational and enjoyable sessions of the programme, highlights will include thought-provoking debates, best practice sessions, dedicated society sessions and exciting clinical science symposia organised throughout the three days.

Please note that the scientific programme will include submissions presented in either oral or poster format and we encourage you to submit your abstract by 15 November 2017. We also encourage you to register before 23 October 2017 for substantial savings.

We invite you to join us in Barcelona for a great EBCC – the place where the world of breast cancer specialists come together to share, learn and network.


Kind regards,


Robert Mansel (Conference Chair, United Kingdom)

Evi Papadopoulos (Conference Co-Chair, Cyprus)
