Prof. Fabricio Da Silva Costa, Chair of the Scientific Committee illuminates why you should submit your abstract for the ISUOG World Congress 2023.

Our World Congress, in Seoul South Korea this October provides an ideal opportunity to submit your abstract and showcase your unique work.

In 2022, our hybrid World Congress saw 3,000 delegates from over 120 countries attend either in person or virtually. This year our Congress will be in-person, providing the opportunity to share your research face-to-face with OBGYN professionals across the world.

The sharing of best practice and communication between healthcare professionals is essential to help improve women’s health globally, as well as raise the profile of researchers and their findings.

If you have never submitted an abstract through ISUOG before here is why it’s worth considering:

Raise your professional profile

Promoting your research and findings at ISUOG World Congress gives you access to a global audience. This is your chance to disseminate your ideas and gain exposure for yourself and your research.

Get published in UOG

Your work will be published in a supplement of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology (UOG). The influential research journal has a global impact factor of 8.3 and has reached 6.7 million downloads in 2021.

Attend World Congress

Benefit from attending World Congress in Seoul with discounted registration fees. You will have the chance to network and collaborate with clinicians and OBGYN professionals with similar interests.

Be awarded

Scientific awards are presented to authors of the top abstracts from the ISUOG World Congress every year. You can also apply for a Travel Grant and the prestigious Young Investigator Award.

Make a difference

By sharing your work, you increase the knowledge of professionals in the fields of ultrasound in obstetrics and gynecology attending the conference, thus making a difference in the lives of patients and OBGYN professionals across the world. 

On behalf of all the reviewers, we look forward to receiving and reviewing your abstract soon.
