Scientific Meetings

The AACR marshals the full spectrum of expertise of the cancer community to accelerate progress in the prevention, biology, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer by annually convening more than 30 conferences and educational workshops, the largest of which is the AACR Annual Meeting with more than 74,000 attendees for the 2020 virtual meetings and more than 22,500 attendees for past in-person meetings.

Details for select upcoming meetings are below:


The 15th AACR Conference on The Science of Cancer Health Disparities in Racial/Ethnic Minorites and the Medically Underserved will take place September 16-19, 2022 in Philadelphia. This conference aims to advance the understanding of, and ultimately help to eliminate, the disparities that represent a major public health problem in the United States and around the world. Reflecting this transdisciplinary field, professionals from academia, industry, government, and the community will come together to promote the exchange of novel ideas, discuss the latest findings in the field, and stimulate the development of new research on cancer health disparities.
