The German Cancer
Congress (DKK) is the largest, oldest and most important specialist congress on
cancer diagnostics and cancer therapy in the German-speaking world.


It will be held for the 36th time in 2024 under the motto "Shaping progress together".

  • The congress will be held in Berlin.
The congress president of the DKK 2024 is Prof. Dr. Reinhard Büttner, director of the Institute of General Pathology and Pathological Anatomy at the University Hospital of Cologne. The DKK is organized by the German Cancer Society in Berlin and the German Cancer Aid Foundation in Bonn.

In 2024, the German Cancer Congress will again follow the basic idea of a clear separation of the scientific area (German Cancer Congress) and the industrial area (Cancer Forum of the Industry).
