Call for Abstracts

Are you a researcher in childhood, adolescent and young adult cancer (CAYA), or CAYA cancer survivorship? Would you like an opportunity to present your research to parents, young people with cancer, and others working in this area?

If so, the CAYAS (Childhood, Adolescent, Young Adult cancers and Survivorship) Conference 2024 is the right place! 

We are delighted to announce that the 4th Annual CAYAS Conference will take place on Saturday 5th October in Croke Park Stadium, hosted by Childhood Cancer Ireland and CanTeen Ireland.

Childhood Cancer Ireland and CanTeen Ireland are dedicated to creating and hosting an event that highlights the lived experience of parents, families, patients, and survivors by providing them with a platform to collaborate and connect with medical experts, health care researchers, and others.  

The event is supported by the National Cancer Control Programme and Children’s Health Ireland.  

Last year, over 230 delegates attended from a broad audience including young people with lived experience, parents, healthcare professionals, and charities working in the area.  

We’re looking for researchers from all healthcare disciplines in CAYAS-related topics to showcase their research to the community they hope to positively impact. Researchers are invited to submit a 250-word lay abstract on their research, focusing on PPI aspects of their work. Abstracts may be chosen for poster presentation.


Please submit abstracts to info@cayasireland.ie by August 30th 2024 

The CAYAS Conference is free to attend.
