On behalf of the local organizing committee and the city of Vienna, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the 35th Annual Meeting of ESHRE. This wonderful meeting will be held from 23 to 26 June 2019 at the “Messe Wien Exhibition Congress Center”.

Its central location in the heart of Europe makes Vienna easy accessibility from almost all international destinations. Vienna International Airport (VIA) is well connected to the city center, with the City Airport Train (CAT) and rapid transit railway (S-Bahn) allowing an economical and environmentally friendly way of traveling.

As the host city of the United Nations office and several other international agencies Vienna seems predestined as an international conference destination, and indeed the city's prevailing climate of tolerance and understanding create ideal conditions for international meetings. After its first meeting here in 2002, ESHRE will now be in Vienna for a second time and once again its responsible bodies have put together a series of outstanding invited scientific sessions covering much cutting-edge research, such as gene editing, tissue engineering and stem cell therapy to name but a few. Sixteen carefully selected Pre-congress Courses, as well as Industry sponsored symposia, will further complete a scientific event that is now without equal.

And just in case the prospect of scientific inspiration is no compelling reason to join us at ESHRE 2019 the socio-cultural opportunities offered by the city of Vienna definitely are! Known as the city of music for its great musicians and composers, the Austrian capital has a sublime musical heritage which now culminates in the Vienna Boys Choir and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Another pillar of tourism is the breathtaking architecture. Contemporary buildings alternate with the historic, predominately in the baroque (as in the Schönbrunn Palace, Spanish Riding School), and art nouveau style (Vienna Secession), thus creating a special atmosphere of imperial nostalgia. Last but not least, more than a hundred museums, representing all art forms, offer exhibitions well worth a visit.

And why not bring your family with you? Vienna is a metropolis with unique flair and vibrancy, with both old coffee houses and rustic wine taverns (“Heuriger”) as well as countless parks and recreational areas (“Prater”). So no surprise that Vienna has been named as the city with the highest quality of living in recent times. Convince yourself!

    This conference brings together an internationally-renowned faculty to present the latest developments in every phase of IVF and embryo management. The course addresses the needs of practicing scientists, gynecologists, reproductive endocrinologists, residents, and fellows who wish to review the specialty and update their knowledge in this rapidly changing and expanding field.

    The conference setting promotes extensive contact among speakers and participants with question periods, panels, and many opportunities for informal interaction. In the spectacular Crown Room, participants can enjoy breakfast and refreshments and interaction with numerous exhibitors. A mobile app will be utilized to access the material being presented, and electronic polling through the mobile app will be used to promote interaction with the speakers.

    Particular attention will be devoted this year to the rapidly developing trend toward deferred embryo transfer, stimulation strategies for the poor responder and the role of mild ovarian stimulation, optimization of embryo culture, the roles of embryo energy supplies and Co-Q10 in improving mitochondrial function in aging women, difficult cases with ICSI, the critical importance of single embryo transfer in maximizing perinatal outcomes, genetic evaluation of the infertile couple and early pregnancy, management of mosaic embryos, maternal immunogenetics, and practical aspects of transfer technique. A laboratory mini-symposium directed by Dr. William Schoolcraft will cover cryostorage safety, optimizing embryo biopsy, improving embryo metabolism in vitro, mechanisms of embryo self-correction, and the developing field of non-invasive embryo assessment.

    Dr. Antonio Pellicer, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Valencia, Spain, Founder, Insituto Valenciano de Infertilidad (IVI), and co-editor of Fertility and Sterility, will describe developing techniques to awaken oocytes in women with ovarian failure. Dr. Amander Clark, Professor and Chair of the Department of Molecular, Cell and Developmental biology at the University of California Los Angeles, will update us on the fascinating science of producing gametes from stem cells. Dr. Dominique de Ziegler, Professor of Gynecology, University of Paris, will discuss how endometrial inflammation, infection and aberrations of the endometrial microbiome can prevent implantation.

    Target Audience

    The target audience for this initiative includes physicians, fellows, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, embryologists and other allied health professionals in the field of IVF.

    Objectives

    At the completion of the course, participants should be able to:

    • Describe standard, successful methods of each aspect of the clinical practice of assisted reproductive technology and in particular the very significant advantages of deferred embryo transfer, made possible through vitrification; alternatives to full stimulation; prevention of OHSS; the role of health and lifestyle issues in the male and female; time-lapse monitoring of embryos; aging of the oocyte; management of mosaicism with comprehensive chromosome screening; optimal hormone replacement for embryo transfer; and critical aspects of embryo transfer technique.
    • Discuss aspects of embryo culture and embryo manipulation and management to achieve optimal results with IVF.
    • Identify options for fertility preservation for the woman with cancer, and immunologic aspects of implantation.

    As the President of the CFAS, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to our 2019 Annual Meeting to be held in Ottawa, out nation's capital. This is the 65th annual meeting of the CFAS and it will be a very special meeting in celebration of this milestone! We have an exciting lineup of speakers from Canada and around the word. The theme of 2019's meeting is "It Takes a Village to Create an Embryo". An entire team of very skilled people in multiple disciplines is essential for us to successfully help those who suffer from infertility or who require assistance from third parties to have children.

    Some of the topics to be explored include: optimizing the interdisciplinary fertility team to provide the very best care, integrating research with the fertility team, and improving access for remote communities based on a model used in Africa. There will be fantastic sessions for clinicians and basic scientists on the latest in genetics related to reproductive biology, on fertility preservation, the science of implantation, oogenesis, optimizing the luteal phase, hysteroscopy and treatment of poor responders, and much more.

    For the andrology group, they will learn about the use of robotics too select sperm from IVF and the effect of cannabis on human sperm. There will be amazing sessions on reproductive law, counselling, nursing and ethics. There will also be a futuristic talk on how the "village" may look in the future. We will even have a fascinating talk on IVF for endangered species! I am so excited about the quality of the speakers that have agreed to come and the incredible learning experience that all of the attendees will have.
