Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,

We are honoured to announce the 22nd edition of The World Congress on Controversies in Obstetrics, Gynecology & Infertility (COGI) to be held September 17-20, 2015 in the beautiful city of Budapest in one of its best seasons.

COGI has already placed itself as a unique congress. It’s a meeting point of controversial ideas, innovation and discussion for the full range of our discipline, hosting top opinion leaders, presenting the most pressing issues of our profession all in a critical manner.

As always, we work hard to prepare the best possible blend of important news, discussions and debates. COGI covers all fields of Obstetrics, Gynecology and infertility and many sub-disciplines, which makes it a primary source for updates that usually requires attendance at 4-5 specific congresses.

We are proud to continue with the 4th “Annual Robert G. Edwards, Nobel Prize Laureate Lecture” which hosts a special speaker whom you’ll hear for the first time at COGI.

We also invite young scientists to join us in Budapest and present their work for the “Under 34” competition and enjoy a discount on their registration fees.

We would like to invite you to join us in shaping and bringing to light a provocative program, and to contributing to a successful and invigorating congress.
