Chairman's Message

The second chapter of the Indian Cancer Congress (ICC) 2017 is an amalgamation of four major national oncology associations and all sub-specialty associations to improve the quality of cancer care in the country.

On behalf of my fellow members of the local and national organizing committees, I cordially invite you to participate in the second chapter, which will be held in Bengaluru, the Silicon Valley of India. However, as oncologists, I am sure all of you will also appreciate that Bengaluru has contributed significantly in some of the revolutionary changes in the field of medical education and it has also united scientists & oncologists for the advancement of medical science.

The organizing committee is working tirelessly to ensure this is a fruitful conference by setting definite goals to improve the academic standards and enter the space of global leadership, and building clear partnerships to progress in the field of oncology across the globe.

Our aim is foster research & treatment of cancer in India, along with establishing professional networks. This will help foster data collation and develop publications to address the needs of oncologists and cancer patients in India.

I do foresee various challenges in the coming years, but let us face them with a courage of conviction knowing that we can make a difference when we are together. On that note, I am delighted to inform you of the theme for the conference this year: Insight Innovation Integration.

I look forward to your active participation, and would like to acknowledge and thank the first committee who put together ICC in 2013. I sincerely hope this second chapter will move forward to greater heights. Look forward to seeing you there!

Insight Innovation Integration

The theme for ICC 2017 is “ Insight Innovation Integration” !!

Throughout human history, progress has always started with an insight an identification of a problem. Intense thought and debate follows an insight and out of that firmament emerges a possible innovation a possible solution to the identified problem. But these two processes of insight and innovation are by no means isolated or linear phenomenon. They are extremely dynamic in nature and universal in their presence. The result….. a very large number of innovation and may become available in the scientific firmament.
The next logical question would then arise- How can we integrate these innovations into our daily practice? The field of oncology is rapidly evolving and is air constant flux. What is thought to be true may very soon be turned on its head by new insights and new innovations. It is therefore prudent and necessary that we the oncology community – periodically stop in our fast tracks and take stock of some important insights and innovations and debate how best we can integrate these innovations into our practice. A powerful example of such insight would be our increasing recognition of the importance of psycho-oncology. Using this insight, we would innovate a unique training programme in psycho-oncology and work towards integrating psycho-oncology with main stream cancer care!!! There is a large industrial base, supporting and driving cancer care. There would be insights a plenty and innovations in abundance. ICC 2017 provides a unique platform to present such insight and innovations.
Personalized cancer care is the current buzzword as far as insight go! By 2017, certainly there will be a plethora of innovations in this rapidly expanding field. ICC 2017 could well be a platform for some of these innovations to be integrated into practice! ICC 2017 – it’s all about insights, innovations and integrations!! Come join us in this exciting journey. Write in with your own insights, innovations or ideas on integration!
ICC 2017 is all about you, and your creativity! Let move cancer care to the next level.

Namma Bengaluru

Let’s start at the beginning- a story recounts that the 12th century Hoysala king Veera Ballala II while on a hunting expedition, lost his way in the forest. Tired and hungry, he came across a poor old woman who served him boiled beans. The grateful king named the place "benda-kaal-uru" (literally, "town of boiled beans"), which eventually evolved into "Bengaluru”. The name changed over the years but the hospitality did not!

Bengaluru or Bangalore, the third largest city in India is located in the south of India and the capital of the state of Karnataka. It is also known as the "Silicon Valley of India" because of its role as the nation's leading information technology exporter. Located at a height of over 3,000 feet (914.4 m) above sea level, Bangalore is known for its pleasant climate throughout the year. The city is amongst the top ten preferred entrepreneurial locations in the world.

Bengaluru is an amalgamation of a rich cultural past and rapid modernization. The Old city retains more than a hint of its glorious past in the forts and palaces from the 16th century with their splendid architecture and sprawling “maidans”. The New city is famous for its impressive modern buildings which house the technology giants, the numerous high quality educational institutions that attract students from all over, the well laid out connectivity within the city & to the outside world, the thriving night life and the excellent shopping. These qualities make it a magnificent place to visit, a delightful city to live in as well and a gateway to the rest of India.

Karnataka’s manifold attractions will have you missing just one thing – TIME!! Game sanctuaries at Bandipur, Nagarhole & Dandeli, hill stations like Nandi Hills, Kemmannagundi & Mercara, beach resorts like Karwar, Ullal, Malpe & Maravanthe, Brindavan Gardens at KRsagar, the monolithic statue of Gommateshwara at Sharavanabelagola, GolGumbaz with its whispering gallery at Bijapur, the Jog falls ,the list of tourist attractions is endless.

The temples at Aihole, Badami and Pattadakal in Bijapurdistricthave great significance for all lovers of art. The temples of Halebedu, Belur and Somanathapura are great architectural achievements – the like of which are rarely seen in any part of the world.
