Registration | virtual meeting updates

Despite our initial, -moderate- optimism to contemplate a real, physical meeting in Lausanne* in the fall later this year, we have decided along with our Swiss organisers that the upcoming 13th European Conference on Tourette Syndrome & Tic Disorders will be organised virtually on Friday 1 & Saturday 2 October 2021.

We shall post all relevant details within the coming weeks on the News section, so stay tuned!

Yes, the programme does include a BT workshop and there will be a call for abstract submissions. 🚀

*The "physical" Meeting is expected to take place in Lausanne in early summer 2022, exact dates to be announced.
