    Emerge Australia is hosting an international research symposium, 12-15 March 2019, in Melbourne, Australia. This symposium, “ME/CFS: The biological basis, diagnosis, treatment and management” is supported by funding from the Department of Health. Key speakers include Dr. Neil McGregor, Professor Paul Fisher, Associate Professor Brett Lidbury, Professor Sonya Marshall-Gradisnik and Professor Don Staines.

    The symposium will be targeted to researchers and clinicians, though will be open to anyone to attend. More details will be available on Emerge’s website in the coming weeks: http://emerge.org.au/symposium

    The symposium will culminate in a special issue of the journal Diagnostics, which will also be hosted by Emerge, entitled “Biomedical Insights that Inform the Diagnosis of ME/CFS".

    It looks so interesting, I wish I could go.

    Hopefully sessions 1 and 2 (at least!) will be available on the Emerge youtube channel soon afterwards.

    A note about the livestream: most of the conference will be streamed, but there may be some portions which are unavailable, due to embargoed results.

    For those wanting to tweet about the conference, the hashtag is #mecfsconference.

    They’ll be made available on Emerge’s Vimeo channel. Not sure how long after the conference, but I’ll post the link here when they’re up.

    I am very surprised that a Dutch CBT/GET proponent will do a presentation at this symposium.

    He is part of the group of fatigue researchers who are still promoting CBT and CBT/ GET as a cure for CFS and for QFS although their research showed a null result.

    I’ll give it a go, @Sasha . I’ve not done that before!

    Edit: Done! Though it only let me add one date. Not sure how to make the calendar entry run for the three days?

    Hmm. Interesting how it's just Australian women and children facing this epidemic of chronic illness - Australian men are somehow immune to it.

    You need to repeat the procedure for each individual day. I've done that for you. :)
