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 this website by early June. Registration begins in 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.

 

Target Audience

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 (covering conference registration fee and intended for transportation/ accommodations) 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. You do not need to be a US resident or citizen. To apply for the award, when you submit your research abstract, please complete the relevant items on the form.

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.
