There is no city quite like Berlin to host our World Congress and to celebrate the extraordinary diversity and unity of ISUOG. The Scientific Committee and the Board of ISUOG have worked alongside Congress chairs Kurt Hecher and Rabih Chaoui to create the most exciting scientific program to welcome you for our 29th World Congress, where we look forward to hosting you...

Our Congress will be the perfect mix of large sessions with top level experts sharing their experience, and small working hubs which facilitate direct exchange between attendees - you can view the provisional program now. Experts working at the cutting edge of their field will be able to share the very latest, and even unpublished, data; while those who focus on optimizing clinical practice based on the latest techniques and evidence will be able to receive practical information on how to best scan and treat patients on a daily basis.

In this fantastic city you will find the perfect mix of top notch research and education. All of your favorite themes will be covered: uro-gynecology, IVF, oncology, fetal anomalies, fetal therapy including surgery, multiple pregnancies, heart and brain evaluation, screening for adverse pregnancy outcomes. You will receive updates from leading speakers through the congress formats and settings you have grown to enjoy: masterclasses, thematic sessions, Q&A sessions, workshops, hubs, and debates.

In Berlin, you'll also have the opportunity to attend exceptional pre-congress courses, organized in partnership with DEGUM (German Society of Ultrasound in Medecine) and SMFM (Society for Materno-Fetal Medecine), and to pass several ISUOG certificates to acknowledge your newly acquired experience.

Your top speakers are already booked, and sessions are being organized. Now it is time for you to register and come enjoy the magic of ISUOG in the vibrant city of Berlin.

I am very much looking forward to seeing you in Berlin where we'll work, exchange, collaborate, talk, share, discuss and of course have a lot of fun.

See you in Berlin, Germany – 12-16th of October 2019.
