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.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.

On January 15, 2009, Chesley B. Sullenberger was celebrated world-wide: after the two engines had failed due to bird strike, he and his flight crew succeeded after a glide flight with an Airbus A320 in ditching on the Hudson River. All 155 people on board were saved.

In the field of nanoscience, an international team of physicists with participants from Konstanz has achieved a breakthrough in understanding heat transport
Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...
The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
