ISUOG 2023 - What will it look like?

1. Where is the Congress being held?
The 2023 ISUOG World Congress will be held at the COEX Convention and Exhibition Centre in Seoul, Republic of Korea (513 Yeongdong-daero, Gangnam-gu, Seoul). COEX is a modern venue located in the centre of the bustling business district of Seoul, with plenty of hotels, shops and attractions nearby as well as good public transport links.
2. Will the 2023 ISUOG World Congress onsite or virtual?
In 2023 it has been decided to return to a fully onsite/in-person ISUOG World Congress and to maximise face-to-face interaction, learning and networking. The main scientific program sessions will be recorded and available for registered delegates only to watch on-demand via the Congress app for 1 month, and the ISUOG website for 12 months thereafter (with Pre-Congress courses available for 1 month), after which point they will become available to all ISUOG members on the website. Whilst ISUOG was able to offer online/hybrid Congresses during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, this was a huge operational undertaking that cannot currently be sustained year on year. This will of course be monitored over time, as there were undoubtedly some benefits to online/hybrid events that ISUOG would like to build on if possible in the future. For anyone unable to attend the ISUOG World Congress 2023 onsite, there are various other ISUOG activities available online throughout the year.
3. What will the maximum capacity of delegates be in 2023?
We hope to welcome 2,000-2,500 delegates to the Congress.
4. Is the structure of the scientific program changing for 2023?
The 2023 Congress program will return to a full, 4 day format, with an extra day prior for Pre-Congress courses. It will bring together faculty from around the world and with the 2023 event taking place in Seoul, you can also expect to meet leading experts in ultrasound from Korea and the wider Asia region.

Your data protected

1. How is my data collected at ISUOG events?
Personal data collected by ISUOG during the registration process is used to fulfil delegate attendance at the Congress and for delegates who qualify for ISUOG membership to fulfil their membership. ISUOG will use the contact information collected leading up to the Congress to notify delegates of Congress-related activities. We transmit personally identifiable data to third parties (data processors) only to the extent required to fulfil the terms of your contract with us, for example, to a service provider to allow you to register. Data is not provided to third parties without delegate approval or legitimate interest.
Delegates must opt in to related questions on the registration form to take advantage of additional benefits. ISUOG takes no responsibility for delegates who do not read the data protection questions on the form in full and who do not actively opt in who wish to receive these additional benefits provided by third parties. Delegates have the right to withdraw consent given at any time by emailing [email protected].
Sharing your personal data with exhibitors and sponsors:
  • By attending an onsite event your name, job title, organisation, country and any other details on your event badge will be visible to all attendees including sponsors and exhibitors. 
  • During an onsite event if you:

• Contact or engage with a sponsor or exhibitor and agree for them to scan your badge
• Attend a sponsored session where badges will be scanned on entry

the scanning of your badge gives your consent and the personal data you provided to us (full name, country of residence and email address) will be shared with the sponsor or exhibitor, and they may be in contact with you about their products and services outside of the event. You also agree where relevant, these parties may transfer your data outside of the EEA for these purposes and you consent to such a transfer.
  • You can revoke any consent you have given under this policy at any time by informing the exhibitor or sponsor when connecting with them.

Membership queries

1. How do I become an ISUOG member?
As a delegate of the ISUOG World Congress 2023, you will receive 12 months of Basic ISUOG membership.
If you register as a non-member by 6 October, you should have already received 12 months of Basic ISUOG membership. Depending on when you registered, you may have been given your membership from May or July (for example).
If you registered for the Congress as an existing ISUOG member, you will receive 12 months of membership from the expiry date of your current membership.
Delegates registering onsite will receive membership right after the Congress.
2. How do I log in?
Click on 'Login' at the top right corner of our website and enter your membership number or registered email address in the first field and then your password. Once you have logged in you can access all member content including UOG online, if you are a current Journal member.
3. How do I find my password?
You will be asked to create your individual password. If your Congress membership has already been created, you should have received an email asking you to do this. If you have no emails from ISUOG and there are none in your Junk/spam folders, your membership probably hasn’t been created yet.
If you cannot remember your password, please click on ‘Forgotten password’ on the login page. Then enter your registered email address and we will send you a link to reset your password. This link will expire within 15 minutes.
4. I can’t see any emails from ISUOG.
Please check your junk and spam folders – our emails can sometimes end up in there. This happens most often with yahoo and gmail accounts. If you still don’t have any emails from ISUOG it’s probable that your membership has not been created yet – we will do this after the Congress and it will run for 12 months.
