Eurasian Summit: Modern Approach in Management of Gynecological Tumors

Apr 26 - Apr 28

Dear IGCS Members and Friends,

The International Gynecologic Cancer Society (IGCS) in partnership with the Kazakh Institute of Oncology and Radiology (KazIOR), the Kazakhstan Cancer Society (KazCS) and the American Eurasian Cancer Alliance (AECA) is pleased to invite you to the upcoming Eurasian Summit: Modern Approach in Management of Gynecological Tumors.

The three-day summit will be held April 26-28, 2023, in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Attendees can participate in-person or livestream the sessions online. The sessions will be presented in English and Russian with simultaneous translation between both languages. There is no cost to register.

The Summit will gather a robust group of international faculty from nearly 20 countries representing major regional centers, leading cancer facilities in the United States and Europe as well as public health organizations.

The Program

On day one (April 26) the summit offers a practical workshop on the diagnoses, screening, and treatment of preinvasive cervical disease. Day two (April 27) will include education on cervical cancer, endometrial cancer, uterine sarcoma, radiation oncology, and pathology. On the third day (April 28), we’ll discuss rare gynecological tumors, gestational trophoblastic disease, ovarian cancer, and palliative care. A focused Eurasian session will assemble leaders representing Central Asia, the Caucasus region, and Central and Eastern Europe to present the latest updates in gynecologic oncology screening and treatment programs for their respective county.

Cervical Cancer Elimination Roundtable

We will also host a roundtable session with representatives from several organizations (listed below) to discuss the global strategy to eliminate cervical cancer. This roundtable is sure to be illuminating and allow for the exchange of ideas to further our united efforts in this area.

  • American Eurasian Cancer Alliance (AECA)
  • European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO)
  • International Agency of Cancer Research (IARC)
  • International Gynecologic Cancer Society (IGCS)
