Main content


We have the pleasure of inviting you to the 12th CCBIO Symposium, May 14-15, 2024 at Solstrand Hotel. 

Registration: is now open for the CCBIO and local communities, at this link. Opens for all at March 5.

With so many participants in a very international mix, this is a great opportunity for international networking within the field of cancer research. The beautiful surroundings at the historical hotel Solstrand provide an ideal frame for the symposium with the serene fjord views, fresh air, great food and spacious areas, with a little touch of Norwegian history. We expect the symposium to become fully subscribed, and strongly recommend you to register early and within the local/CCBIO-internal deadline of March 5, before we open up for global registration. 

We have organized a strong scientific program and secured a range of international speakers, among them Raza Ali, Sandra Ryeom, Frances Balkwill, Linda Lindstrøm, Randy Watnick, Göran Jönsson, Anna Vähärautio and Patrick Micke.

Practical info: Please read the practical information sheet where many of your questions will be answered.

Speed-talks/poster sessions:

Younger researchers will be offered slots for 3-minute speed-talks as well as extended poster sessions. 

If you wish to present a poster or do a speed-talk, please have the following information at hand before registration:

  • Project title
  • Authors
  • Whether you will present alone or with one of the co-authors
  • Size of the poster

Note that a one page poster/speed-talk abstract in Word format needs to be submitted to Eli.Vidhammer@uib.no within April 20 to be considered by the committee, and for inclusion in the abstract book. Those accepted for speed-talk will also need to prepare a 1-slide presentation in Powerpoint with deadline May 7. Info will be e-mailed to all candidates.


The heavily subsidized registration fee is 2500 NOK/250 Euro per person for the two symposium days and the overnight stay with full board.
