About the IOCDF Research Symposium

The Symposium is a forum for researchers and students from around the world to share data and findings from the latest research in OCD and related disorders. Designed “by researchers, for researchers,” this annual event unites scientists to network, learn, and engage in high-level discussion.

We Invite You to Attend This Year's Symposium!

The 7th Annual IOCDF Research Symposium will take place Thursday, July 7, 2022.

Online attendees will be able to view live presentations streamed from the in-person Symposium as well as participate in real-time Q&A with presenters.

We invite researchers, trainees, and students to attend! Registration to attend the Symposium will open in March 2022. Discounted registration pricing will be availablefor IOCDF Professional and Student/Trainee Members. Learn more about membership >
