18th World Congress on Controversies in Obstetrics, Gynecology & Infertility (COGI)

  • Conference Call
  • The World Con­gress on Con­tro­ver­sies in Obstet­rics, Gyne­col­ogy & Infer­til­ity in 2013 will be held in Vienna, Aus­tria, Octo­ber 24 – 27, 2013.

    The ground­break­ing series of COGI Con­gresses pro­vides a unique plat­form to dis­cuss con­tro­ver­sial issues in all fields of Obstet­rics, Gyne­col­ogy and Infer­til­ity. The abil­ity to dis­cuss only con­tro­ver­sial top­ics with empha­sis on clin­i­cal solu­tions in cases where no agreed-​upon answers or con­sen­sus exist, pro­vides clin­i­cians with an insight and a take-​home mes­sage that ame­lio­rates treat­ment in the most dif­fi­cult situations.

    Only a few con­gresses can attract such a group of inter­dis­ci­pli­nary invited opin­ion lead­ers in the Ob/​Gyn field to deal in depth with the press­ing issues of our dis­ci­pline. No won­der that COGI Con­gress attracts over 2200 gyne­col­o­gists & sci­en­tists from over 100 coun­tries, and the major­ity of the industry.

    We are proud to con­tinue the series of the “Annual Robert G. Edwards, Nobel Prize Lau­re­ate Lec­ture”, started at the 2012 COGI Con­gress in Lisbon.
