The IACFS/ME have published dates for 2022 along with a request for workshop and abstracts. Full details are re-printed below and see this link for our coverage of the conference in 2021.
Call for abstracts / workshop proposals: Anticipated Mid-January
Mark your calendars to join us July 27 – 30, 2022 for our International Scientific Conference to be held at Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, New York, USA. This will be IACFS/ME's 15th Scientific Conference!
We anticipate an exciting, informative program including:
- Research presentations
- Clinical workshops
- Poster sessions
- Patient and advocates lecture series
We expect the meeting will run from approximately 9 AM to 5 PM July 27-29 and 9 AM to 3 PM July 30. A conference program will be posted on our website by early June.
The conference will focus on the biomedical, public health, and behavioral aspects of ME/CFS and associated comorbidities. A portion of the meeting will also be devoted to COVID-19 and its relevance to ME/CFS research and clinical care.
Attendees at IACFS/ME conferences are primarily biomedical and behavioral professionals, including clinicians, researchers, and educators. We especially encourage participation by professionals from outside the United States. People affected by ME/CFS and their supporters are also welcome to attend. Researchers who are new to this field, classified as early stage investigators, or originate from an underrepresented group may apply for a travel award sponsored by the US National Institutes of Health. Underrepresented groups include individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, and women.
IACFS/ME Members received discounted registration fees: considering joining us today for this and other benefits! For a taste of our meetings, see our 2021 Virtual Conference Summaries and Past Conference Programs.
IACFS/ME will follow vaccination, testing, and other (e.g., indoor masking, distancing) rules as required by federal, state, local, and university campus agencies. Updated information will sent over the upcoming months. Compliance with posted rules are required for all attendees. We strongly suggest you keep up-to-date on your COVID-19 vaccinations and continue practicing behaviors that lower your risk of infection. If conditions prohibit an in-person conference, we will pivot to a virtual format. We thank you in advance for your patience, understanding, and cooperation.
