The ICS Scientific Committee are the custodians of scientific excellence within ICS. Members of the committee represent the key opinion leaders within the clinical and scientific continence community. Members are elected by the membership representing all the disciplines of the society. Representatives of the host country of the current annual meeting provide the unique local flavour to the Scientific Programme as the ICS congress travels the globe each year.
Each year, the committee reviews the submitted abstracts and produces the scientific programme, ensuring the highest standards of scientific methodology, research and clinical practice. The leading lights in each field are chosen as chairs of scientific sessions to moderate and facilitate discussion. The committee works to maintain the highest standards of critical review and gains the expertise of hundreds of experts in the field to review ICS abstracts. The prestigious ICS prizes for Best Clinical, Non Clinical and Best in Category Abstracts are selected by the scientific committee on merit and awarded at the annual meeting.
