Organising Chairperson's Message

Organising Chairperson

Dear friends and colleagues,

On behalf of the Organising Committee, we are delighted to welcome you to the 32nd Annual Scientific Congress of Malaysian Oncological Society (32nd ASCOMOS) which will take place between 29th – 31st October 2021, virtually.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a massive global impact and claimed many casualties. Our deepest condolences go out to the people who have lost a loved one and those who suffered during this pandemic. The pandemic continue to pose uncertainties on the feasibility of holding many in-person activities and events, at least until the end of this year. MOS has therefore taken the difficult decision to cancel our physical 2020 Congress, and we have decided to put our best efforts in organising the first ever virtual Congress!

To elevate our knowledge and understanding of cancer and its management, the MOS has honored its commitment to present to you best practices, new researches and innovative approaches with rigorous discussion from the wide perspective of a faculty, often made up of local, regional and international leaders, for the past 3 decades.

We would like to set a stage for our aim to convening everyone together in an alliance for a holistic approach to cancer care for our country, which defines the conference theme – ‘Forging a New Future for Oncology’ perfectly. In this age of ever increasing and evolving oncology care, we endeavour to play a vital role in the continual education of cancer care professionals and look forward to fostering new partners and better collaborations to improve efforts on awareness, education on cancer and survivorship and access to care.

32nd ASCOMOS will have not just a broad and comprehensive scientific program on recent advances, current scientific challenges and the evolving merits of innovators or emerging therapies, it also aims to bring several new initiatives that will be appealing to the entire spectrum of professional cancer community. It strives to appeal to young researchers to interact and learn the basics of this disease from faculty experts for an outstanding educational and networking experience.

We encourage your kind participation through abstract submission with free registration for those accepted abstracts. We are happy to share with you of the official launches of the new MOS website as well as the MOS-Oncology Commemorative coffee book during the conference.
