With much thanks to the hosts this year: the National Cancer Registry - Cancer Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences & Peking Union Medical College (CICAMS), National Cancer Center, China, the organising committee invite you to join us in November in Beijing.

The plenary topics are the following:

  • Stage, comorbidities, and other prognostic information in cancer registration
  • Descriptive epidemiology including special populations (e.g., children, adolescents and young adults)
  • Registry innovation, research and health policy
  • Collaboration, innovation and training in registry practice


Project E-NNOVATE: Electronic Innovations in Cancer Registration

E-NNOVATE is an ongoing collaborative project to develop the DHIS2-CanReg application linking a cancer registry to electronic medical health records (EMHRs).  This tool will improve the way cancer data is collected, enhancing its value and useability.

This application will be free, and open-sourced, and can be easily adopted by any country. In addition, a network of experts are being trained to support new users following its global roll-out, scheduled for December 2023. Coordinated by IARC-Global Initiative for Cancer Registries, the project is currently and successfully being piloted in Rwanda and the IARC-GICR Caribbean Hub for Cancer Registration

The registries portal ( and the IACR website is designed to allow all registries and members to upload and update not only contact details but the registry profiles, descriptions and featured reports and publications.  This is one of the benefits of being a member of the Association:  webpages and publicly-available information about your registry that could be useful for establishing contacts with other registries, institutions and researchers.  

All IACR member-registries have the access and login details. Credentials can also be obtained from the IACR Secretariat.
