Where can I find more information about the ICFP side events and pre-conferences?
ICFP side events: Side events for the 2021 International Conference on Family Planning include any meetings, workshops, panels, networking sessions, training courses, and presentations that take place outside of conference programmed hours (8:30 to 17:30). Side events are not organized by the ICFP hosts, but by partner organizations and our various subcommittees. They are an opportunity for groups to convene stakeholders to focus on their own area of interest in the format of their choice. Side events are offered through our various sponsorship packages. If you are interested in hosting an onsite side event within the convention center complex, they are offered through our various sponsorship packages.
The 2018 conference included more than 80 onsite and offsite side events and pre-conferences. Eighty-five organizations participated as exhibitors at the 2018 ICFP, compared to 58 at the 2016 ICFP.
ICFP Pre-Conference: Pre-conferences are organized and hosted by our community partners. You can check out more about these communities in the Communities Section (Coming soon) to learn more about planned pre-conferences.
