We are honoured to announce the 24th edition of The World Congress on Controversies in Obstetrics, Gynecology & Infertility (COGI) to be held November 10-13, 2016 in the beautiful city of Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The 24th COGI Congress has been designed to provide an innovative and comprehensive overview of the latest research developments in the field, primarily in the areas of IVF, family planning, menopause and perinatology.
Many distinguished gynecologists and scientists have joined the faculty and will take part in this Congress. All of them will present their experience and research in the form of debates, discussion, plenary lectures and symposia.
We also invite young scientists to join us in Amsterdam and submit their abstracts for either oral presentation or ePoster as well as joining the “Young Scientist Award” competition.
We will of course continue with the “Annual Robert G. Edwards, Nobel Prize Laureate Lecture” which will host a special speaker whom you will hear from for the first time at COGI.
We hope that you will find the 24th COGI Congress as interesting as ever, and we are looking forward to meeting you in Amsterdam
