13th European Conference on Tourette Syndrome & Tic Disorders

Lausanne, Switzerland | 3-5 June, 2020

Welcome again to our annual ESSTS meeting, this year in the beautiful city of Lausanne!
Lausanne has grabbed the top spot in Monocle's ranking of the world's best small cities and we are doing our best to ...be(come) the best small scientific society in the world. 🙂
This year, our focus will be on comorbidities in Tourette syndrome; but we will also explore brain stimulation, expand on podium discussions, launch a fresh controversy with polling, discuss the history of Tourette syndrome and societal issues related to the disorder, and give ample time for young researchers to present their work, both by posters and oral presentations. And for... you don't change a winning team, our highly awaited clinical rounds, patient association meetings, CBT workshops (both in English and French) and a review of the best papers of 2019, are also included in the meeting's agenda.
This year's social event will be hosted at the Olympic Museum of Lausanne.

We hope you join us in what will be a joyous celebration of our community and our work.
Register now and don’t miss the early bird deadline !
Warm regards,
The local organizers and the ESSTS board
