CIMM contributes significantly to the development of the Annual Meeting each year through the proposal of scientific sessions to the Annual Meeting Program Committee and Education Committee. In addition, for the past two years CIMM has hosted a joint evening scientific session on a hot topic in cancer immunology. If you would like to recommend a session for development for the next Annual Meeting, write to email@example.com.
Each year at the Annual Meeting, CIMM hosts a Town Meeting and Reception for all interested Annual Meeting registrants. The Town Hall Meeting provides an opportunity for attendees to learn about the Working Group, meet the members of the Steering Committee, connect with old colleagues and meet new ones, learn about exciting programming, and contribute ideas to help shape future CIMM initiatives.
It is now clear that the tumor microenvironment includes multiple innate and adaptive components of the immune system that, together with tumor and tissue components, regulate tumor formation, progression and metastasis. The Chairpersons of the Cancer Immunology and Tumor Microenvironment Working Groups jointly host this evening scientific session to hear leaders from both fields present their most current view of these important interactions.
Tumor Immunology: Multidisciplinary Science Driving Basic and Clinical AdvancesDecember 2-5, 2012InterContinental Miami HotelMiami, Florida

This is the fourth conference in this tumor immunology series. A hallmark of this conference is to integrate several sub-disciplines of cancer immunology with a broad focus on treatment and prevention of different cancers. Some of the themes that will be addressed in this year’s conference include: immune mechanisms that promote cancer development, enhancing immune responses against cancer, and advances in immunotherapies. Overall, this conference is designed to cover the latest findings on tumor growth regulation, vaccine research, and potential agents for therapy and prevention.
