NCRI Cancer Conference submissions review process

The NCRI Cancer Conference Scientific Committee encourages individuals and organisations to submit ideas and suggestions for sessions to be run at the NCRI Cancer Conference. Each Conference focuses on a number of key areas or themes which are discussed in various sessions. There are two different session types currently considered for suggestions:

  • Parallel sessions
  • Workshops

How to submit an idea

In order to submit a session, applicants must fill in the online form.

Submissions received will be reviewed twice a year during a Scientific Committee (SC) meeting as follows:

  • January Scientific Committee meeting for either current year or following year’s conference depending on suitability and sessions’ availability
  • October Executive Committee meeting for following year’s conference

The reviewers will see the names of the presenters, participants and organisers. Proposals are judged based on overall quality, likely interest to the conference audiences, relevance and compatibility to the overall conference themes, innovation and contribution. Once a proposal has been submitted, the NCRI Cancer Conference Team will contact the applicants to let them know when the proposal will be reviewed and expected timescale for feedback. Following the Scientific Committee meeting, feedback will be sent to applicants and if relevant, next steps will be agreed.
