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.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
