Greetings from Dubai! It gives us great pleasure to invite you to WOOSP 4.0 (4th World Congress on Ovulation Induction & Ovarian Stimulation Protocols) to be held from 6-9 September 2018 at Dubai, UAE.
Stimulation protocols are currently chosen mainly based on personal preferences and individual experience rather than objective evidence. Stimulation protocols in poor responders, as well as in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) patients undergoing ART, constitutes a great challenge for clinicians. Several protocols have been proposed that, when properly utilized, should optimize the pregnancy rates while keeping the potential complications at a minimum. There is a need to find better predictors of ovarian response to stimulation, and to tailor the stimulation protocols to each individual patient.
The gimmicks to attract attention and passengers to Dubai — a $1 million raffle, a chance to win a Porsche 911, or a monthlong shopping festival — are still there but are hardly needed anymore. Travelers from around the world no longer need to be lured to this parched former trading post on the edge of the Persian Gulf. From its humble beginning as a refueling stop for travelers with no desire to linger in an inhospitable corner of the Arabian Peninsula, Dubai’s airport has recently overtaken Heathrow Airport in London as the world’s busiest international air travel hub. Just a decade ago, Dubai ranked as the 45th-largest international hub. Dubai’s rise as a modern crossroads connecting East and West — with the name of its hometown airline, Emirates, adorning the jerseys of the world’s best soccer teams and sponsoring Formula One car racing and the United States Open — is a tale of globalization and ambition, and an audacious bet on the future of air travel. Since the 1980s, when its rulers decided to turn the city into a tourist destination, Dubai’s biggest developments include two of the world’s largest shopping malls — one with a huge aquarium, another with an indoor ski slope — the world’s tallest tower, Burj Khalifa, measuring 2,717 feet, and artificial palm-shaped islands that can be seen from outer space.
As is the tradition at IVF Lite Foundation events, we are sure you will meet lot of old friends and make new ones at Dubai – The crossroads to the world!
Cheers & God Bless,
Gautam Allahbadia, Congress President
Goral Gandhi, Organizing Secretary
