IACFS/ME 2020 Virtual Conference – Friday 21 August 


The International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (IACFS/ME) is excited to invite you to our first virtual research conference to be held on August 21, 2020!

This half-day, Zoom-based meeting will consist of moderated one-hour sessions followed by a question- and-answer discussion (via Chat), similar to our in-person conferences.

 3.00 – 8pm UK       (10 AM – 3 PM Eastern Daylight Time)


Our conference will focus on all biomedical, public health, and behavioural aspects of ME/CFS and associated comorbidities.  Invited speakers are drawn from a selection of accepted oral presentations to our June conference that was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. A portion of the meeting will also be devoted to COVID-19 and its relevance to ME/CFS research and clinical care.

We plan to record the meeting so people unable to attend live may watch it afterwards.

Attendees at IACFS/ME conferences are primarily biomedical and behavioubioral professionals, including clinicians, researchers and educators. People affected by ME/CFS and their supporters are also welcomed to attend.

Dr Fred Friedberg     Dr Ronald Tompkins      Dr Luis Nacal
