- Once streamed all live content will immediately become available on demand so you can catch up at your convenience. Pause, rewind and re-watch to fully ensure you take onboard the content!
- Earn maximum CME credits by participating in the scientific programme (application pending)
- Network with colleagues. Just because we are apart doesn’t mean that you can't catch up with friends and foster new research projects.
- Visit the virtual exhibition hall. Journey through the exhibition booths, explore the displayed materials, contact exhibitors directly, and chat with other visitors.
And so much more!
AS A BONUS: ICS is the leader in research and education in the field of continence. Dissemination of research in our field is one of our core goals as a charity. Our aim is therefore to make the content available indefinitely.

Other meeting highlights include:
7th INTERNATIONAL CONSULTATION ON INCONTINENCE
Delayed from 2020, the ICS Board of Trustees is very pleased to announce that ICUD to host the 7th International Consultation on Incontinence (ICI) at ICS 2021. The ICI has established itself as one of the foremost and widely quoted set of international guidelines on the management of urinary and faecal incontinence. Many of the contributors are active ICS members and the published work of the consultation directly fits with the mission and strategic aims of the ICS. So it is most appropriate, and with great pride, that the ICS be directly involved once again following the successful partnership to deliver ICI 6. The role of the ICS will be to host the consultation event, publish the final publication and disseminate the recommendations and guidelines. All ICS 2021 delegates will be able to review the proposed content of the book and provide valuable feedback to the Chapter Chairs. After ICS 2021 there will be further live ICI presentations and further opportunities to feedback at no extra cost. More details of these live sessions will be coming soon!
