4th EPATH Hybrid Conference:
Reconnecting and Redefining Transgender Healthcare

The theme of the fourth hybrid edition of the EPATH conference is “Reconnecting and Redefining Transgender Care“. After two years since our previous conference, and a pandemic which made human interactions and conferences go virtual to a large extend, we wish to truly reconnect with known and new colleagues again. It’s also a time for redefining transgender healthcare, based on new insights, new health protocols and developing social and legal settings. The conference will – as always – center around the broad spectrum of transgender health, including social and legal aspects. EPATH continues to seek fostering European knowledge, clinical skills, education, and human rights in transgender health.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the fourth EPATH conference was postponed to August 11-13, 2021. With postponing the date we hoped that it would be possible to meet you in person. We are now happy to announce that this 4th edition will take place in a hybrid format, with both on site and off site components!  This allows you to be part of our conference, whether or not you are able to travel to the beautiful city of Gothenburg, Sweden. EPATH cordially invites researchers and professionals in the field of transgender health to submit an abstract for its fourth hybrid conference. We look forward to meeting you, be it online or in person in Gothenburg!

What is a hybrid conference?

The EPATH hybrid conference will consist of a combination of live-streamed plenary sessions on site, and prerecorded video sessions of oral and poster presentations. These prerecorded sessions will be followed by a live attended Q&A.

The plenary sessions thus take place on site before a live audience. The scientific program is the same for on and off site attendees. Of course, all attendees on site will also benefit from a social program, networking moments, and of course the beautiful city of Gotenburg!  Attendance on site holds up to 350 registrants due to COVID regulations. For more information, please check the program overview (under construction).

Will there be different fees for on site or off site attendance?

Yes. We will have different fees for those attending the virtual program only, and those attending the conference on site. Good to know:

  • If you’re not sure if you will be able to travel, it’s possible to upgrade your initial off site registration to an on site registration.
  • Additionally there will be an option to add on a 12-month extended access to all recorded sessions.
  • As usual, different fees will be in place for NGOs, students, members or non-member registrations. In fact, the lower online registration fees will make the conference more accessible to those in a financial precarious situation or to those unable to travel.
  • More information about the exact registration fees will follow soon.
When do registrations open?

The registration platform will open by April 1st the latest. We keep you posted!

Call for Abstracts is open!
