Mark your calendars to join us on August 19-21, 2021 for our International Scientific Conference to be held in easily accessible virtual format. Last year’s first virtual conference was so popular, we are repeating it again this year!

We anticipate an exciting, informative program including:

  • Research presentations
  • Clinical workshops
  • Virtual poster sessions
  • Patient and advocates lecture series

We expect the meeting will run from approximately 10 AM Eastern Daylight Time (EDT, New York City) to 3 PM EDT (Thursday – Saturday). Please re-visit this page and website for updates. A conference program will be posted on our website by early July.

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. People affected by ME/CFS and their supporters are also welcome to attend. IACFS/ME Members received discounted registration fees: considering joining us today for this and other benefits!

The School of Medicine, State University of New York at Stony Brook is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education to physicians and will designate the number of AMA PRA Category 1 credit (s) TM awarded for physician participation. Continuing education credits for nurses will also be offered.

The meeting will be recorded so that people unable to attend may watch the proceedings at their convenience.
