On behalf of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) and the Local Organizing Committee, it is a great pleasure and an honor to extend to you a warm invitation to attend the 6th Latin American Conference on Lung Cancer (LALCA 2014) to be held August 21 ? 23, 2014 in Lima, Peru.
Lung Cancer is still the leading cause of death not only in Latin America but worldwide. Building on the success of the previous conferences in Chile, Argentina and Brazil, international and national speakers will discuss the science and advances in the treatment and prevention of lung cancer and thoracic malignancies worldwide and Latin America in particular.
Simultaneous translation English >< Spanish will be provided for all sessions.
With tobacco being the leading cause of morbi-mortality worldwide and its consumption leading to respiratory and cardiovascular disease, as well as cancer, the Conference would like to support the Framework Convention for Tobacco Control and will again host a Tobacco Forum on Thursday, August 21.
We encourage physicians, nurses, other clinicians, researchers and scientists in the lung cancer field and those interested in any aspect of thoracic oncology to attend this conference. It is only through an exchange of the widest variety of research that we can offer the best program and benefits to our members and patients.
We expect more than 500 delegates from Latin America to attend this unique event and we encourage everyone to submit an abstract before the abstract submission deadline April 25, 2014.
We hope you will join us in Lima, the beautiful capital of the Republic of Peru, where you can enjoy its historical center with beautiful colonial churches and mansions; as well as its modern site with its suburbs offering a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. Or you might want to take a couple of extra days and enjoy an amazing journey to the center of the world Cusco with its beautiful surroundings and Inca ruins, followed by a leisurely train ride to the enigmatic citadel of Machu Picchu ? one of the most amazing urban creations of the Inca Empire at 2,430m above sea-level, in the middle of a tropical mountain forest.
We look forward to welcoming you to an inspiring educational program in Lima, Peru in August 2014.
