  • NEW! IOCDF Research Symposium (see below)
  • Research Posters*

The deadline to submit your proposal is Monday, February 1, at 5pm ET.

*Research posters have a deadline of April 11, 2016.

We are also pleased to announce the launch of the IOCDF Research Symposium, a day-long, pre-conference event,for researchers, by researchers, held the Thursday before the 23rd Annual OCD Conference in Chicago. This event aims to provide a forum for high-level discussion of research topics among people who specialize in the study of OCD and related disorders. The Research Symposium proposal system also closes Monday, February 1, 2016 at 5pm ET. 

Updated hotel and travel information is now available as well. First, we have secured a discounted rate of $209/night at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile for the Conference weekend. All Conference workshops, programs, and evening events will take place at the Marriott, located right on Chicago’s scenic Magnificent Mile. This is a very competitive rate for Chicago this time of year and we expect these rooms to sell out quickly — be sure to make your reservations as soon as possible to guarantee a room for the 23rd Annual OCD Conference! And finally, if flying to this year’s Conference, there are two airports in the Chicago area you can arrive into for the Annual OCD Conference: O’Hare International Airport or Midway International Airport. We are also are pleased to announce discounted airfare via Delta Airlines available for attendees.
