World Congress on Larynx Cancer 2015

World Congress on Larynx Cancer 2015

26 – 30 July 2015 Cairns, Australia

Larynx Cancer whilst declining in frequency in the western world is still a major problem in the developing world. The increasing and ageing population however is such that larynx cancer is going to be with us for many years. Considerable progress has been made in managing this malignancy since the last World Congress in 1994. Laser resection is an accepted modality, with surgical resection performed robotically now attracting considerable interest. Radiotherapy remains a major component of treatment approaches around the world, increasingly used with added chemotherapy/biological agents, be it prior to and/or during the treatment. It is however well recognised now that preservation of an anatomical larynx doesn’t necessarily relate to the retention of a functioning larynx.

The theme of this World Congress will be to cover the aspects of improvement in our management, define those components where the progress has been minimal, and focus strongly on the functional aspects of the patients we treat. Do these patients cope adequately with speech and swallowing post treatment?

This is a Congress aimed at all those involved in the care of these patients, not only at presentation, but in the years afterwards as well.

Scientiae 2015

Scientiae 2015

27-29 May 2015 Victoria College, University of Toronto, Canada

Fourth annual international conference on the emergent knowledge practices of the early-modern period (1450-1750). The major premise of this conference is that knowledge during the period of the Scientific Revolution was inherently interdisciplinary, involving complex mixtures of practices and objects which had yet to be separated into their modern “scientific” hierarchies. Our approach, therefore, needs to be equally wide-ranging, involving Biblical exegesis, art theory, logic, and literary humanism; as well as natural philosophy, alchemy, occult practices, and trade knowledge. Attention is also given to mapping intellectual geographies through the tools of the digital humanities. Always, our focus must be on the subject-matter at hand, rather than on the disciplinary performances by which we access it. Although centred around the emergence of modern natural science, Scientiae is intended for scholars working in any area of early-modern intellectual culture.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

intellectual geography: networks, intellectual history, and the digital humanities;

theological and religious origins and implications of the new sciences;

law, learned practices, and the sciences;

antiquarianism and the emergence of modern science;

the impact of images on the formation of early modern knowledge;

genealogies of “reason”, “utility”, and “knowledge”;

Humanism and the Scientific Revolution;

Paracelsianism, Neoplatonism, and alchemy more generally;

interactions between the new sciences, magic and demonology;

the history of health and medicine;

morality and the character of the natural world;

early modern conceptions of, and practices surrounding, intellectual property;

poetry, literature, and the natural sciences;

the development of novel approaches to cosmology and anthropology;

natural history, botany, and art;

music: between mathematics, religion, and medicine;

global history and nature in the early modern period;

information technology, media, and the study of early modernity.

MASCC/ISOO Annual Meeting on Supportive Care in Cancer

MASCC/ISOO Annual Meeting on Supportive Care in Cancer

June 25-27, 2015 Copenhagen, Denmark

Being held in Copenhagen, Denmark, the MASCC/ISOO 2015 Annual Meeting will spotlight excellent science and cutting edge research aimed at enhancing the lives of people coping with cancer.
In a few short years, MASCC-ISOO annual meetings have developed a reputation for providing the most current data and innovative techniques with regards to how best minimize therapy-induced side effects and complications associated with cancer.

Significant advances in cancer treatment in the last two decades have been made possible by the strides in supportive care. By joining colleagues from around the world, June 25-27 2015, you will gain access to the latest knowledge and have the opportunity to contribute your own insights to this important discussion on all aspects of cancer care.

The Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC) is an international multidisciplinary organization dedicated to research and education in all aspects of supportive care for people with cancer regardless of the stage of their disease.

In 1998 MASCC joined forces with the International Society of Oral Oncology (ISOO), an organization that addresses the management of complications arising in oral tissues secondary to cancer and its treatment.
