It is our great pleasure to invite you to join us in sub-tropical Brisbane, Australia, for a joint meeting of the 9th World Congress of Melanoma and 14th International Congress of the Society for Melanoma Research.

The joint congress will bring together the world’s leading melanoma researchers and clinicians to showcase the latest developments in melanoma diagnosis, treatment and research.

This global summit will accelerate scientific and clinical investigations into melanoma, providing an opportunity for delegates from multi-disciplinary fields to meet in a warm climate to exchange knowledge and expertise.

We plan to inspire new partnerships and innovations, and will offer a range of significant cant benefits to international delegates from across the world, including opportunities to explore new professional horizons that pivot from a uniquely global focus on melanoma and skin cancer control.
The stage for the joint meeting will be set in an exciting time for the world melanoma community, with medical and scientific discoveries expected to transform melanoma prevention, diagnosis and treatment worldwide.

Brisbane is a blue-sky city, known for its spectacular scenery and laid-back lifestyle. The perfect place to convene, it is widely recognised as one of Australia’s most impressive conference cities, offering delegates the opportunity to enjoy the finest aspects of Australian customs and natural heritage.

We welcome you to join us!
