Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the International Gastric Cancer Association and the local organizing committee of IGCC 2017, it is my honour and pleasure to cordially invite you to the 12th International Gastric Cancer Congress (IGCC). The meeting will be held in Beijing, China from April 20th to 23rd, 2017. And we believe it will be a truly memorable event for gastric cancer professionals from around the world.

The world has witnessed the impressive economic and scientific development of China during the past two decades. The management and research of gastric cancer in China has achieved marvelous achievements which is a vital component of progress in the global control of gastric cancer.

The central theme at IGCC 2017 will be “Bridging Gaps to Improve the Management of Gastric Cancer”. This highly anticipated event will undoubtedly bring together elite speakers and distinguished representatives from the scientific, clinical, and business fronts to present leading research and the latest cutting-edge technology in our field. Our exciting program consisting of workshops, symposiums, and presentations will not only provide excellent opportunities to exchange ideas and expand visions, but also to build and further enhance personal and professional networks – both of which will strengthen the development of clinical research and service in gastric cancer.

Beijing, sometimes romanized as Peking, is the capital of the People's Republic of China and one of the most populous cities in the world. Through years’ development, Beijing has become an international cosmopolis. During your stay, you can experience the wonders of this fascinating ancient capital, and explore riches it has to offer. It is our sincere hope that you can join us in Beijing for the upcoming meeting. I believe the famous historical city and the academic event will give you unforgettable memories.
