Dear WCCS 2014 Participant,

I would like to thank absolutely everybody who contributed in very large or less large ways to WCCS 2014 (including even those who in  the end could not or did not attend). What you have done through all your efforts is to have created a conference appearing in every way to be an exceptional teaching, learning and socially interactive success for all, a fact attested to at least in part by the fact that there were well over a thousand attendees from 63 countries, and research contributions of such value as to lead to huge media coverage, greater as I understand it than for many party political conferences. 

Many thanks to you all once again.

Very best wishes.

John Hawk

President of Congress

We will be displaying some photos from the Congress on this site shortly.

Dear Skin Cancer Specialist
From September 3rd to 6th 2014, usually a great time of the year, the 15th World Congress on Cancers of the Skin (WCCS 2014) will take place in Edinburgh, capital of Scotland.  

Scotland is a country where skin cancer rates, in a fair-skinned population accustomed to sunny holidays and often ill-advised sunbed use, are of major concern. The 15th WCCS will appropriately consider all aspects of this subject, from the clinical, histological and genetic nature of these cancers, to how best to prevent and treat them. Addressing this major issue will be a superior faculty of speakers drawn from all of the UK, continental Europe, the USA, Canada, Africa, South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, clearly demonstrating the thoroughly global importance of the topic. The venue for this signal event will be the superbly suitable Edinburgh International Congress Centre (EICC) situated in the city centre. 

Given the major worldwide importance in incidence, morbidity, mortality and cost to society of skin cancer, this conference will attract a very large number of delegates from all over the globe, and we invite you to join them - registration is now open.

I do hope we shall see you at the meeting for a major academic event.

Very best wishes.
