    The "Early Bird" registration deadline has been extended from Jan 31 to February 14 so if you missed registering earlier, you can still do so now for the lowest rate.


    You can register up until the first day of the Conference (March 20) but the cost will go up after Feb. 14.

    If patients sign up for the patient conference, are they free to go to the physician sessions also? The wording on the registration site seems to say so.

    "(includes Patient and Professional Conference – banquet not included, no CME's)"


    I have never been to one but I have family in the area so I was considering going this year...

    The statement you are referring to is under the "4-day" Conference. Patients and others who select this option will attend the Patient Conference the first day (look at the Patient Agenda http://www.iacfsme.org/Conferences/2014Conference/2014PatientAgenda/tabid/536/Default.aspx) and for the remaining 3 days, attend the research talks with everyone else (patients, clinicians, researchers, etc.).

    For an idea of what research will be covered, look at March 21-23 on the Professional Conference: http://www.iacfsme.org/Conferences/2014Conference/2014ProfessionalAgenda/tabid/535/Default.aspx.
    This is just some of the research as much more research will be covered by posters in the poster exhibit area; there simply is not enough space/time for all researchers to give an oral presentation. So if you want to know cutting edge stuff and recognize that these sessions may be very technical, go for the 4-day session.

    The Professional Conference on the first day March 20 is reserved primarily for physicians/ other healthcare providers/ researchers as there is limited seating/ space. Most of the topics covered in the Professional Conference are also covered in the Patient Conference but the Patient version will be less technically-oriented than the Professional. Many patients and their supporters want information but not at the technical level represented on this forum necessarily.
