DOHaD 2023 Bids of Hosting Congress


The Society apologises for a further push back of the deadline for bids for the DOHaD 2023 Congress.

The Society is in negotiation with potential professional Congress organisers, which we expect to be complete in Q3 2020.

We apologize for this delay. We shall post the new deadline as soon as these negotiations are completed.


Bids to host a World Congress will be accepted on a rolling basis - within 4 years in advance of a Congress meeting (2019 for example to host the 2023 Congress).

Bids can be made following instructions on our Society website. Applicants must effectively and comprehensively address all of the requirements listed in this bid package.  The Society Council will review all submissions and respond to proposals. Our goal is to select conference venues four years in advance, although the Society recognizes that this timing may fluctuate.

Before submitting a bid, please read the Congress Guidebook found on the DOHaD Society website.

Expressions of Interest (EoIs) for hosting a Congress can be submitted and will be considered by the DOHaD Society Secretariat in consultation with Scientific Program subcommittee. EoIs for hosting a World Congress are due to the Society Administrator at dohad@mrc.soton.ac.uk four years in advance of the meeting (ie for 2023 submit by 2019).

Expressions of Interest should include:

Successful EoIs will be notified within 2 weeks and invited to submit a full application  four years in advance of the meeting (ie for 2023 submit by 2019).

Expressions of Interest, and subsequent Full Bid Applications, should be submitted to the Society Administrator at dohad@mrc.soton.ac.uk.
