1st World Congress for Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders


The First World Congress on Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders - London, June 24-26, 2015

The European Society for the Study of Tourette Syndrome (ESSTS), Tourette Syndrome Association (TSA), Tourettes Action-UK (TA), along with other partners, are proud to present the 1st World Congress on Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders, which will be held in London, June 24-16, 2015. As we join efforts to identify the cause(s) and work towards the development of improved treatments for Tic disorders and associated conditions, new frontiers and global collaboration will be established. The final programme can be found here.

The objective of this meeting is to provide a forum for disseminating current advances in all areas of TS within relevant scientific and medical communities. We anticipate that this congress will also act as a catalyst for the synthesis of new ideas that will ultimately enhance our understanding of the disorder and result in the development of new treatments for TS, Tic disorders and associated conditions. Cross-disciplinary communication will enable the establishment of new global networks of basic and clinical scientists working together to advance our knowledge of TS is also a key aim of this Congress.

The Congress program will feature internationally renowned experts and speakers who will present the latest information on all aspects of TS, Tic disorders and related conditions. Plenary sessions, poster sessions and scheduled discussions on controversial topics on tic disorders will be included. Several workshops and training programs will be held during the Congress.
