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 30th 2015.

2015 WORLD CONGRESS ON IN VITRO FERTILIZATIONThis conference will encompass all aspects of contemporary ART. Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy an outstanding scientific program and to interact with innovators in our field in a cozy and friendly atmosphere.

Highlights of the Congress will include regenerative medicine, somatic cell nuclear transfer and stem cell technology; advances in laboratory techniques; embryo selection methods; IVF and the endometrium; preimplantation genetic testing (PGD/PGS); male reproduction; aging and IVF; and fertility preservation, among others.

The people of Copenhagen are friendly and welcoming and the city has consistently been ranked among the best cities 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 connections to prominent Danes from the Golden Age: The poet Hans Christian Andersen and the philosopher Søren Kierkegaard. Those with more modern tastes should not miss this opportunity for a closer look at Danish design, the new opera house and superb dining.

Please refer to our website periodically,as it will include all the most recent information regarding this World Congress.

Yours Sincerely

Welcome to ISIVF

Dear Colleagues:

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
