The Russian Association of Human Reproduction unites specialists in human reproduction: obstetrician-gynecologists, fertility specialists, embryologists, and andrologists.

This conference, held by the Association for more than 25 years, is a valuable platform for exchanging views, sharing experience, and promoting cutting-edge technologies among leading professionals from all over the world.


At the Sixth World Conference in Fertility and Sterility held in Tel Aviv, Israel in 1968, the International Federation of Fertility Societies (IFFS) was born. The International Fertility Association remained as an affiliate to represent members with no national society. A constitution and by-laws were drawn up and remain today to govern the actions of IFFS.

Membership has grown and at present, over sixty National Fertility Societies are affiliated. It is estimated over 50,000 specialists worldwide concerned in the areas of fertility and sterility are brought together under one umbrella organization.

Precongress seminars

Conference program

Workshop “ASRM Embryo Transfer Simulator”

For both patient and physician, the final step of IVF – the transfer of the embryo into the uterine cavity for implantation – is the most crucial step and often the most stressful step. This anxiety is often attributed to the high cost and time associated with IVF/ART and the potential difficulty of the transfer due to individual patient anatomy.

The ASRM Embryo Transfer Simulator is a robust training simulator that provides physicians and healthcare workers the opportunity to practice simulated transfers and intrauterine insemination using a variety of challenging uteri. It requires the learner to attain the skills needed to successfully navigate normal and difficult endocervices using either ultrasound-guided or un-guided imaging to simulate placing the embryo(s) in the ideal location within the uterine cavity.

Simulation-based training allows for training in a safe, risk-free environment and the ability for unlimited repetitions and deliberate practice methods.

Participants in the ASRM simulation sessions receive real-time simulation metrics (feedback) and structured debriefing with the expert faculty, two key areas of simulation that help facilitate development of motor and cognitive skills required to attain proficiency in embryo transfer. In conjunction with the ASRM Curriculum for Embryo Transfer and the ASRM Standard Embryo Transfer Protocol, the Simulator is a tool that significantly augments current training using a structured simulation-based method to learning basic embryo transfer techniques and characteristics of an ideal transfer.


The “EXPOFORUM” congress and exhibition center is a new modern venue in Saint Petersburg designed for business events of any scale and level: exhibitions, congresses, and forums. Convenient and innovative exhibition and congress areas that can be easily transformed for a specific event are complemented by the advanced infrastructure and well-planned logistics of the entire complex.
