50th Annual SIOP Congress
The 50th Congress of the International Society of Paediatric Oncology (SIOP) will be held in November 16-19, 2018, in Kyoto, Japan. It is a great honor for us to host such a memorial 50th anniversary meeting in Japan.

SIOP aims to make a world that no child should die of cancer. For the last 50 years, the cure rates of many paediatric cancers have largely improved. However, it is also true that there are still many children with refractory cancer who cannot be cured or struggle for a long time.
SIOP also aims to put all countries in the world under the same umbrella for the patients to be able to receive equal levels of diagnosis, treatment and care. We must work together to solve many problems and challenge together for the future.
We hope that SIOP 2018 in Kyoto will be a turning point to further improve the cure rates and care of children with cancer in the whole world.
