Adelaide, South Australia is a great location to ‘Welcome ASPIRE back to our future’. This will be the first face-to face conference in 3 years and we are honoured to host ASPIRE 2023 in Adelaide, which is in the top 3 liveable cities in the world. The Universities in Adelaide have been at the forefront of research in reproductive medicine supported by IVF units that have strong ties and training links to the Asia-Pacific. The Robinson Research Institute’s world leading groups are dedicated to promoting innovations in reproductive immunology, PCOS, endometriosis and embryology.

We hope you will join us in developing new ideas and collaborations to further future generations of researchers and clinical experts. We can finally take the opportunity to bring our ideas together in person and celebrate our diversity, in what is a lucky part of the world to live in at present. September is an ideal time to visit Adelaide with springtime temperatures of 16-26⁰ C (60-80⁰ F) and dry weather. Adelaide is the heartland of food and wine produce, having a peaceful, safe atmosphere, and easy walking access to art galleries, museums, café’s, restaurants, and roof top bars. We hope you will take time to explore our hills, beaches, and cityscapes, and see our unique Australian animals in their natural environment.

We are glad we can ‘Welcome you back to our future’ in person and are looking forward to an inspiring, stimulating conference in Adelaide, where we can plan our combined future together.
