The American Association for Cancer Education (AACE), the Cancer Patient Education Network (CPEN), and the European Association for Cancer Education (EACE) invites students, educators, researchers, health professionals, and community members to submit their research, practice, education and evaluation findings for dissemination at the annual conference.

The meeting is being developed to meet the expressed needs of the AACE, CPEN and EACE memberships, both from their evaluation of the 2008 and in response to the survey identifying the "most important" aspects of the meeting that would meet the needs of the members. The evaluation of the 2008 meeting confirms that the meeting planners effectively assess member' needs and develop a program to meet them.
Our members' innovative ideas and research advances are published in our Journal of Cancer Education, as well as in other leading medical, educational, and cancer journals. Each year our annual meeting has a theme that highlights an important aspect of cancer education.
We trust you will enjoy this year's presentations, workshops, symposia, plenary, concurrent sessions, and posters delivered by leading educators from around the world.
