The International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (IACFS/ME) is excited to invite you to our first virtual research conference to be held on Friday 21 August, 2020!
This half-day, Zoom-based meeting will consist of moderated one-hour sessions followed by a question- and-answer discussion (via Chat), similar to our in-person conferences.
- Visit the IACFS/ME Virtual Conference website.
- Register for the Virtual Conference.
- View the Virtual Conference Presentation Schedule.
We anticipate the meeting will run from approximately 3.00 PM to 8.30 PM (UK Time). We hope you can join us and our partners for the conference!
- This American conference will focus on all biomedical, public health, and behavioral aspects of ME/CFS and associated comorbidities.
- Invited speakers are drawn from a selection of accepted oral presentations to our June conference that was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
- A portion of the meeting will also be devoted to COVID-19 and its relevance to ME/CFS research and clinical care.
- We plan to record the meeting so people unable to attend live may watch it afterwards.
- Attendees at IACFS/ME conferences are primarily biomedical and behavioral professionals, including clinicians, researchers and educators.
- People affected by ME/CFS and their supporters are also welcome to attend.
- To assure all attendees receive instructions on how to access Zoom, registration will close at 5.00 PM (UK Time), Thursday, 20 August.
The presentations will include contributions from researchers who's names you might recognise – Professor Lenny Jason, Dr Harvey Moldofsky (COVID-19), Dr Ronald Tomkins, Dr James Baraniuk – together with members of the UK M.E. Biobank – Dr Luis Nacal, Dr Eliana Lacerda, and Caroline Kingdon.
Please note: This is not a free conference. Non-professionals are invited, but you will also have to pay a fee and provide confirmation of identity to take part. The conference will be recorded and made available at a later date – it is not yet clear if there will be a charge for access to the recording.
