2015 WORLD CONGRESS ON IN VITRO FERTILIZATION
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of the organizing committee and under the auspices of the International Society of In Vitro Fertilization (ISIVF), we are delighted to invite you to take part in the 18th World IVF Congress of In Vitro Fertilization, which will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark on September 27th to September 30th, 2015.
This conference comprises all aspects of modern ART and provides the participants to overlook the whole program and to be able to interact in a cosy and friendly atmosphere.
The ISIVF 2015 will, among other, present the new area of molecular biology in ART, PDG, embryo quality assessment, endometrial embryo interaction, advancement in laboratory technologies and safe ovarian hyper stimulation strategies.
When the scientific program is finalized a copy will be sent to you, and as well will be posted on our web site.
The cost of registration as well as details regarding accommodations will also soon be finalized.
The people of Copenhagen are friendly and welcoming and the city has consistently been ranked among the best cities to live in and to visit in Europe. The Congress will be held in the inner city, close to the city's historical buildings, the Tivoli Gardens and Art Museums with indications to prominent Danes from the Golden Age: The poet Hans Christian Andersen and the philosopher Søren Kierkegaard.
For a more modern glance and taste, do not miss this opportunity to get a closer look at Danish design, the new Opera and up-front gastronomy.

Welcome to ISIVF
Bob Edwards considered the International Society for In Vitro Fertilization an important part of his legacy, and with this in mind I regard my election to the Presidency of the ISIVF, serving from 2013-2015, a great honor. Working together, I believe we can make the Society the largest international forum for clinicians and scientists working in the assisted reproductive technologies, as Bob intended.
Over the last several months, I have had the pleasure of working with Svend Lindenberg, the Copenhagen Congress President, and Victor Gomel, the Society’s Executive Director, in preparation for the next World Congress in Copenhagen in September 2015. With the assistance of the Congress’s Scientific Committee, which includes many of our field’s luminaries, we are planning three days of presentations by outstanding scientific and clinical leaders in the fields of in vitro fertilization, reproductive genetics and stem cell biology. We intend the Congress to be equally interesting to our colleagues in bench research, embryology and clinical practice.
Indeed, this diversity of topics will also be reflected in the Congress’ attendees: In line with Bob Edwards’ vision for the Society as an umbrella group for local and subspecialty ART societies, we are pleased to welcome the Asia Pacific Initiative on Reproduction (ASPIRE), the International Society for Fertility Preservation (ISFP) and the Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis International Society (PGDIS), who will organize special sessions within the Congress. I am also pleased to inform our members that Istanbul was selected as the site of the 2017 World Congress at a recent Board meeting in Paris.
ISIVF membership has witnessed exceptional growth over the past several years. Please access links on the left-facing side of our website’s Membership Area to apply for membership or to renew your membership.
The Society would not exist without its members, and so I want to thank each of you for your continued support. I hope to have the chance to thank many of you personally in Copenhagen next year.
Zev Rosenwaks, M.D.
President, International Society for In Vitro Fertilization
