- 3rd World Congress on Controversies in Breast Cancer (CoBrCa)
October 26 - 28, 2017 (Tokyo, Japan)
- 2nd World Congress on Controversies in Breast Cancer (CoBrCa)
September 9 - 11, 2016 (Barcelona, Spain)
This was the first CoBrCa meeting that I have attended and it proved to be a very positive experience. The scope of the presentations was wide-ranging, encompassing issues very relevant to all clinicians dealing with breast cancer patients in their daily clinical practice; the debate sessions delivered by experienced multinational faculty were very informative, and there was good opportunity for questions from the audience; the venue was excellent, and the organisation was very efficient. I attended most talks, and I was fortunate enough to spend a few days before the conference visiting interesting places in the beautiful city of Tokyo and enjoying Japanese hospitality. I look forward to attending the next CoBrCa meeting in Melbourne in Oct 2018, and I would recommend, without hesitation, to all clinicians in breast practice to attend this forthcoming congress.

While brief, this conference really captured the most controversial issues in the management early breast cancer. I especially enjoyed the debate format, especially when there was an introductory lecture. Ideal-sized meeting, nice venue, great location in Toronomon Hills (how convenient to everything), and a relaxed atmosphere. Bravo to all who made this event come to fruition.
Michael Hunter, USA
Thank you for giving me such a valuable opportunity this time. Through discussions with young doctors from various countries, we were able to put together our opinions about genetic testing. I will continue my efforts to lead to the development of clinical practice.
Once again, I am looking forward to working with this participant.
Yuko Tanabe, Japan

The conference experience at CoBrCa was quite different to most other conventions – with intense discussions between world leading opinion leaders on topics of everyday life. I brought a wealth of new insights and inspirations back home in my daily and scientific work.

Congratulations to the organiser of the 2nd World Congress on Controversies in Breast Cancer (CoBrCa) in Barcelona. All my expectations were completed. The high-level meeting was not only scientific, but also by the presenters of the sessions. The Debate format is a very good tool to interacting with the presenters. Congratulations.
Martin Espinosa-Bravo, Spain
It was a fantastic experience, has made me many new contacts who are interested in my work and has broadened my horizons. The novel concept you have employed using debate rather than didactic lecture was a breath of fresh air and worked so well in the multidisciplinary context.
Ash Subramanian, UK
Very interesting lectures. Posters, globally, useful. I’ll intend your next meeting.
Casimir Muszynski, France
I enjoyed the meeting and thought it was a great interactive forum for the faculty and attendees. Well done! Sunil Verma, Canada
Another Great Educational Congress, with all presentations being lively, up to date and informative. I’m already looking forward to the next CoBrCa in Japan later next year.
Guy Hingston, Australia
Informative conference with current opinions from specialists in their field.
Shan Bau, Australia
The 2nd CoBrCa congress was fantastic. This congress was highly informative in the form of interactive discussion on a wide range of controversial issues with latest research findings. Every session is effectively scheduled to lead audience to develop a thorough understanding of the problems by specific evidence toward the near future of 2020. I cannot easily find such a sophisticated opportunity elsewhere. Fortunately I was able to present my retrospective study in the poster session which was surely beneficial through intense discussion with researchers. And, to my amazement, the 3rd CoBrCa will be held here in Tokyo next year!! My hometown Tokyo is preparing for the next Olympic Games in 2020, too. Next CoBrCa is must-attend event for me.
Kenshiro Shiraishi, Japan
I thoroughly enjoyed the format and it was excellent to be able to listen to so many high quality speakers and hear the arguments discussed in an informative yet informal setting.
Sarah Vinnicombe, Scotland
Excellent conference. Highly recommended.
Ruben Cohen-Hallaleh, Australia
It has been a very nice experience to repeat again.

It was my great pleasure to attend the 2nd CoBrCa meeting in Barcelona. The style of this meeting has gradually been well known and a huge reputation among breast oncologists.

Engaging debates from a broad range of specialists from around the world, very informative and interactive! I feel very privileged to have been given the opportunity to present our study at such a highly professional multidisciplinary forum.

CoBrCa 2 was a good conference, held in Barcelona this year. The debates were interesting and interactive and definitely useful for the delegates. I hope to attend the next CoBrCa conference in Tokyo also.

It was fruitful, Nice people, excellent discussions, and organization! Interesting presentations and ideas.
Fadwa D. Abdelrahman, Jordan
Having debates on the most controversial issues in breast cancer makes the Congress so interesting and exciting. There was time to discuss and the level was excellent. Even with all the breast cancer congress around the world, I consider this one to be a must. It can be called the it-congress.
Isabel T. Rubio, Spain
It was a pleasure contributing to such an original and nice meeting.
Philip Poortmans, Netherlands
This was an excellent meeting. I enjoyed the pro and contrary views of controversial breast cancer topics
I enjoyed this meeting very much. The idea of taking a controversial subject and having a thorough review is a good idea; This way, we have clear facts of what is the data. Having also presentation of pro and con in a formal way and then having a consensus statement is important to help us move forward.
CoBrCa was an enjoyable and insightful conference that provided valuable discussions on controversial topics in breast cancer. The level and diversity of the discussions were outstanding! I would like to congratulate the organizers for the high-quality content, organization and professionalism.
