Scientific Program

WCN’23 Scientific Program: four days of leading scientific and academic content, all scheduled in-person in Bangkok but made accessible via livestream and on-demand. 

The Program at a Glance is available now. Choose your content and preferred formats: 

The highly anticipated WCN’23 Pre-congress Courses (Thursday, March 30) offer in-depth courses on both familiar as well as new topics. The Professor Donal O’Donoghue, Global Kidney Policy Forum, is a yearly high-level meeting organized by the ISN at each World Congress of Nephrology (WCN) where key decision-makers and stakeholders address the burden of kidney disease in the region. 

The main congress program gives you a daily Plenary Lecture with state-of-the-art presentations by leading experts in kidney care or broader healthcare issues. 

Built on three main themes, Kidney Failure (KF), Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and Acute Kidney Injury (AKI), the Scientific Sessions bring you the latest science and broad international perspectives on these topics.  

For added spice, Special Sessions highlight scientific and educational kidney health issues covering a range of topics for more targeted audiences. 

Joint Sessions involve leading global organizations and societies, showcasing global issues, and our global reach and impact. 

And there is so much more: activities such as the Raising-the-Curtain sessions (virtual), industry-hosted symposia, posters and oral abstract presentations, and plenty of networking opportunities make WCN’23 an unmissable part of your professional activities in 2023.  

Take part actively and share your research and work by submitting an abstract for the congress. Selected abstracts will be presented as poster at the congress.
