About the Meeting

Each year, MASCC joins forces with the International Society for Oral Oncology (ISOO) to host the preeminent international meeting on supportive care in cancer. This multinational and interdisciplinary meeting brings together professionals and trainees from diverse fields to engage, collaborate and learn.

Our 2023 Annual Meeting will be held in collaboration with our Japanese affiliate organization JASCC, and will take place in the beautiful ancient city of Nara, Japan. With a cutting-edge scientific program presented by the world’s leading experts in supportive care, there will be lots to learn every day. Participants will come away familiar with the latest techniques to manage cancer symptoms and treatment side effects, as well as being equipped to address psychosocial and financial concerns in patients and survivors.

But what makes the Annual Meeting special is more than just the workshops and presentations: it’s the people. Attendees have told us time and again that the opportunities for mentorship and support shaped their careers for years to come, and that the networking and social events are something they look forward to every year.

From students to clinicians, researchers to industry representatives, there’s something for everyone at the MASCC/JASCC/ISOO Annual Meeting. Bring your passion and join us, and together we can shape the future of supportive cancer care.

The 2023 Annual Meeting will be a fully in-person meeting. We hope to see you there!
