ECCO 14 will take place at the Centro de Conveniones Internacional de Barcelona (CCIB) and the Forum Building Auditorium, Barcelona, Spain (www.ccib.es) from Sunday 23 September to Thursday 27 September 2007.
ECCO is recognised as one of the world’s leading multidisciplinary cancer conferences and provides a unique European forum for presentations of exciting new research from experimental and clinical oncologists, epidemiologists and cancer nurses. Over 12.000 scientists, clinicians, doctors, nurses, patients and care givers are expected to attend.
More than 100 experts in different cancer fields have developed a wide-ranging and exciting conference programme, and this year an unprecedented number of basic science abstracts have been accepted and integrated into the programme. There will be first reports from a large number of high quality Phase III trials.
The Federation of European Cancer Societies (FECS) welcome the interest of the press in cancer issues and are happy to provide full assistance to journalists attending ECCO 14, or using the conference website as a resource in their coverage of cancer issues. A media centre with computing, fax, photocopying and free international phone and internet connections will be available.
Registration and hotel accommodation
ECCO 14 is open to bona fide representatives of print and electronic media and healthcare media. For further details, visit the ECCO 14 section of the FECS website at: www.fecs.be
NB: Media registration in advance is strongly recommended, and hotel rooms will go very quickly so early booking is recommended.

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
Two researchers at Heidelberg University have developed a model system that enables a better understanding of the processes in a quantum-physical experiment...
Glaciers might seem rather inhospitable environments. However, they are home to a diverse and vibrant microbial community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they play a bigger role in the carbon cycle than previously thought.
A new study, now published in the journal Nature Geoscience, shows how microbial communities in melting glaciers contribute to the Earth’s carbon cycle, a...
