The FIGO World Congress has taken place every three years since 1958.

It rotates through five continents every three years: the Africa-Eastern Mediterranean, Asia-Oceania, Europe, Latin America and North America regions.

Six years ahead of the event, the General Assembly will decide on the country/territory in which the Congress will be held based on the recommendations of the Executive Board.

 

ORGANISING COMMITTEE

The FIGO Congress Organising Committee is responsible for all aspects of the organisation of the World Congress and, in addition, has a brief to investigate the feasibility of intermediate regional meetings, seminars or workshops according to perceived needs.

 

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMME COMMITTEE

Planning of the Scientific Programme for the Congress is delegated to a dedicated Scientific Programme Committee.

This is one of the most important elements of any FIGO World Congress and consists of seminars, ‘meet the experts’ sessions, debates, plenary sessions, discussions on new technology, new developments, updates and interactive sessions.

The programme includes oral free communications sessions and sponsored symposia.

Since 1991, the De Watteville Lecture has been organised jointly between FIGO and the International Federation of Fertility Societies (IFFS) in memory of Professor Hubert de Watteville, one of the founding fathers of FIGO and IFFS.

The most recent FIGO De Watteville Lectures were presented by:

  • Professor Dennis Lo in Vancouver, Canada in 2015
  • Professor Bruno Lunenfeld in Rome, Italy in 2012
  • Professor Alan Trounson in Cape Town, South Africa in 2009  
  • Professor Martin Pera in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2006
  • Professor Markku Seppala in Santiago, Chile in 2003

The De Watteville Lecture occupies a prominent place among the special lectures that take place at the triennial FIGO World Congress.
