Dear friends and colleagues,

In 2013, the 1st International Symposium on Social Egg Freezing united more than 300 participants from 12 countries in Barcelona, for a very successful scientific day.

We are delighted to welcome you again in 2015 to beautiful Barcelona, for the 2nd International Symposium on Social Egg Freezing.

During the last year, the field has advanced significantly, and so has our program. We’ll discuss together the welfare of child and decision making in social freezing, but we’ll also open the door to new and exciting paths for the future, such as male social freezing and regenerative medicine.

We encourage you to join us for this day of science and discussion, and look forward to seeing you all in a few months.
