Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The 46th Congress of the International Society of Paediatric Oncology (SIOP) will take place October 22-25, 2014 in Toronto, Canada.

SIOP's aim is to improve and optimise treatments throughout the world. SIOP's vision is that no child should die of cancer.

In keeping with the tradition of previous SIOP congresses, the scientific programme will comprise of plenary sessions, guest lectures, committee/group sessions, meet the expert sessions, free and proffered paper sessions.

We would like to invite, and encourage, all healthcare professionals involved in work on cancer in children and young adults to join us at the upcoming congress and to contribute to its high scientific quality.

We have no doubt that networking with your colleagues, on an international scale, will result in a creative exchange of ideas and be personally rewarding.

Toronto, the largest city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario, is a thriving multi-cultural city and a venue not to be missed. We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting metropolis and to a very successful congress.

Yours sincerely,
