XXVII IFSO World Congress in 2024.

We are excited and honoured to invite you “down under” for the XXVII IFSO World Congress in 2024.
3-6 September 2024Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre

Set in the lands of traditional owners – the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung and Bunurong Boon Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin, Melbourne is a thriving modern city known for its laneways and cafes, vibrant entertainment and arts scene, sporting events and eclectic multicultural melting pot, creating a sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere in the world’s “most liveable city”. 

Set against the meandering Yarra River and the expanse of Port Philip Bay, the city skyline will delight you as the rich tapestry of culture, coastal beaches and countryside of wonderous beauty beckons just beyond, inviting your exploration.


The theme for the congress is “Integration” – the integration of science and art of surgery, of technology and technique, of bench research and clinical care, of patient experience and shifting treatment goals with emerging therapies and integrated multidisciplinary care.

We are excited to highlight program features of thought provoking plenaries and bring focus to interdisciplinary sessions with our integrated health providers.

Together we will integrate what we have understood from the past, the best of the now, and what the future will bring from every direction.

Plan now, don’t miss out. We look forward to hosting you with Melbourne’s traditional warm hospitality and gateway to discover Australia.

Congress President Ahmad Aly, Congress President Harry Frydenberg
