For its second Annual Conference organised in the US, ILCA chose the prestigious city of Washington, D.C., as its location. The conference welcomed over 640 participants from 33 different countries and proved to be a great success!

Many thanks to all those who contributed: delegates, speakers, session chairs, workshop leaders, abstract presenters, Special Interest Groups leaders and ILCA partners.

A key development was the pre-conference Workshop on Molecular Classification of HCC, organised by ILCA in partnership with EASL, NCI and AASLD.

It is also during ILCA 2013 that the 4th ILCA President was elected. Indeed, Professor Peter R. Galle took over the presidency from his predecessor Professor Josep M. Llovet during the 7th ILCA General Assembly.
