From September 3rd to 6th 2014, the 15th World Congress on Cancers of the Skin (WCCS 2014) will take place for the first time in the UK, in Edinburgh, capital of Scotland. Scotland is of course a country where skin cancer rates, in a fair-skinned population accustomed to sunny holidays and often ill-advised sunbed use, are of major concern. The 15th WCCS will therefore appropriately consider all aspects of this subject, from the clinical, histological and genetic nature of these cancers, to how best to prevent and treat them. Addressing this major issue will be a superior faculty of speakers drawn from all of the UK, continental Europe, the USA, Canada, Africa, South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, clearly demonstrating the thoroughly global importance of the topic. The venue for this signal event will be the superbly suitable Edinburgh International Congress Centre (EICC) situated in the city centre.

Early September is usually a great time of the year in Edinburgh, the historic and picturesque home of Scotland's famous cultural heritage, characterised superbly by a landmark castle on a cliff top, the British royal family's former Royal Yacht Britannia, and many architecturally beautiful buildings. Social events in absolutely excellent settings will accompany the congress, while the world-famous Edinburgh Festival Fringe will just precede the event, and a host of tours both before and after it will suit both sightseer and sportsman. In addition, Edinburgh is the gateway to a host of world-renowned golf courses and major scenic attractions, all of which will be easily accessible to conference delegates both before and after the congress.

Given the major worldwide importance in incidence, morbidity, mortality and cost to society of skin cancer, this event will attract a very large number of delegates from all over the globe, and we invite you to join them. Please do indicate your preliminary interest by sending your details to wccs2014@bad.org.uk, though this will of course not commit you further. Updates on the Congress will be regularly provided on this website.
