Review of the 16th Annual Scientific Meeting

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ICOCS Annual Scientific Meeting, which was going to be held in Vienna, Austria this year, was changed to a virtual meeting.

The meeting took place on September 10 and 11 via Zoom, and was attended by 35 of our members. The theme of the meeting was Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders under COVID-19, and it consisted of nine talks, a virtual poster session, and the ICOCS Annual General Meeting of Members. Most of the talks are available for members to view on our website here, and the virtual poster session is available for members to view here.

Thank you to all of our members who helped organize the meeting, and to all those who promoted and attended the event.

Comments from Meeting Attendees:

  • Well organized. Covered a broad range of studies of impact of COVID on OCD related disorders around the world.
  • Very interesting and valued contribution to our knowledge horizon.
  • Nicely executed!
  • This was an excellent occasion that I thoroughly enjoyed. I was inspired by the work that was presented. But I am disappointed that we could not meet in person. Hopefully, going forwards, there would be the opportunity to meet in person.
