An international conference on the causes, experiences and consequences of ART will take place in Wiesbaden on 11-12 September 2019. Abstracts can be submitted by February 28, 2019.

The birth of the first child after in vitro fertilisation (IVF) in Great Britain in 1978 transformed public awareness of assisted reproductive technologies (ART). ART helps people who have medical or social barriers to having children. Advances and diversification in ART and broader social, demographic and economic changes in industrialised countries contributed to an increasing use of ART.

The University of Duisburg-Essen and the Federal Institute for Population Research (BiB) will organise an international conference on the causes, experiences and consequences of ART, which will take place in Wiesbaden on September 11-12, 2019.

Nicky Hudson (Director of the Centre for Reproduction Research, De Montfort University Leicester) will present a keynote on “The creation of ‘world families’ via cross-border fertility treatment”.

We invite the submission of abstracts (up to 500 words) by February 28 to anne-kristin.kuhnt [at] uni-due.de (Anne-Kristin Kuhnt )and jasmin_passet [at] yahoo.de (Jasmin Passet-Wittig). Authors will be informed whether their paper has been accepted by March 29, 2019.
