President’s letter 2024

Dear ICCS member 

It has been a while since our last communication, and I really hope that this letter finds you well and you had a great start in the new year.

The 2023 ICCS CONFERENCE and beyond

The ones of you that were able to participate would most probably agree that the ICCS conference held in Brazil last November was a success. The local organizers prepared an ambitious program comprising invited lectures as well and free communications, but we also had the possibility to immerse into the afro-Brazilian culture of Bahia and experience the Brazilian hospitality. More than 200 health care professionals attended the meeting during which we also had the possibility to honor Dr. Stuart Bower from Boston Children’s Hospital for his long-standing contribution in pediatric urology and childhood incontinence.

The 2024 ICCS conference is scheduled for September 12th -14th 2024 at Marriott Louisville Kentucky USA and will be held in collaboration with Pediatric Urology Nurses & Specialists (PUNS) and Societies for Pediatric Urology (SPU). and you can get more information on

Mark your calendars if not done already and prepare for another great meeting where you can discuss the newest developments in childhood incontinence.

Deadline for abstract submission is May 16th.
