International Continence Society (ICS) 2017, Florence, Italy
“Leading Continence Research and Education”
12th-15th September 2017

Call for abstracts 01 March – 01 April 2017

After 14 years the ICS annual meeting is returning to Italy, and once again the ICS will be in Florence!

We are excited to host the most renowned international experts in the research and the treatment of pelvic organs and pelvic floor dysfunctions, with particular regard to incontinence. The meeting is multidisciplinary, bringing together all the professionals working in the field: nurses, midwives, urologists, gynaecologists, neurologists, physiotherapists, and basic scientists.

The 2017 Scientific Committee is planning sessions on the pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of incontinence and other dysfunctions of the pelvic organs and of the pelvic floor. Rehabilitation, medical and surgical treatments will be discussed as well as basic and translational research. The role of new technologies will also be explored. Specialised nursing sessions are also prepared.

The convention centre, Fortezza da Basso, has been recently renovated and is now one of the most modern and comfortable congress venues in Italy. The Fortezza is located within walking distance from the heart of the beautiful art city of Florence where you can lose yourself in the ancient Florentine streets full of arts, handicrafts, fashion and wonderful local cuisine! Take a trip among the colour and flavours of Italian history and tradition. The Mediterranean and Tuscan atmosphere will accompany the discovery of such unexpected beauties that only a city such as Florence can offer.

Florence has always been the centre of cultural exchanges; we believe it is the perfect city to host the ICS meeting!

We look forward to meeting you in Florence in September 2017!
