Welcome to FGC2015

Fetal Growth 2015 will provide an international and multidisciplinary forum for researchers and clinicians for in-depth debates on evidence, implications for best practice and definition of critical questions in the field of fetal growth disorders. Following the overwhelmingly positive feedback after the previous conferences (2012 Birmingham, 2013 Baltimore and 2014 Oxford) this meeting will be held in Barcelona.


To broadly address the evidence, best practice recommendations and research questions on fetal growth disorders: growth standards and models, placental pathology, screening and surveillance, implementing antenatal growth assessment programmes, management of different clinical forms of IUGR and postnatal issues.


September 14-16, 2015

Abstracts for oral or poster presentations are invited on all areas of fetal growth, including in particular on themes listed in the program. Abstracts may have been presented at previous meetings. Please indicate the preferred method of presentation (oral/poster).
