The International Society of Geriatric Oncology, or Société Internationale d’Oncologie Gériatrique in French, hence the acronym SIOG, was founded in 2000. The major risk factor for cancer is age, and with the aging of the world population, a major epidemiologic challenge is before us.

The goal of SIOG is to foster the development of health professionals in the field of geriatric oncology, in order to optimize treatment of older adults with cancer. It promotes efforts in training, research, policy and care to support this mission.

SIOG is a multidisciplinary society, including physicians in the fields of oncology and geriatrics, and allied health professionals. Its annual conference is the leading conference for experts in the field to interact and share their results.

It has members in more than 40 countries around the world.
