Unfortunately, due to current COVID-restrictions in both UK and the Netherlands the committee has been forced to convert the 8th Joint Dutch/UK Clinical Genetics Societies and Cancer Genetics Groups meeting to a fully-online format.

New registration fees apply:

  • Joint meeting (2 days): €125 / £105 
  • Dysmorphology meeting: no cost
  • Cancer Genetics case day: no cost

Participants who have already paid a fee for attending in person will receive a refund later this month.

There will be no ‘one-day option’ regarding the online-format. 

Registration for this event is open via the website:


Call for Abstracts 

Joint sessions are planned with the UK/ Dutch Cancer Genetics Groups. The program committee has agreed to set aside multiple slots in scientific sessions for spoken presentations to be selected from submitted abstracts. A separate session is planned for the Robin Winter Prize, the Ben ter Haar Prize and the Dutch Clinical Genetics Prize for clinical genetics specialist trainees (Science prize).

Abstracts can be submitted for spoken presentation and/or poster. Abstracts that are not selected for spoken presentations will all be considered for poster presentation.

All abstracts should be submitted on-line, please see full information via the meeting website: https://www.aanmelder.nl/jointmeeting/abstracts

FINAL deadline for abstract submission is 14 January 2022 23:59

To encourage submission of abstracts for the meeting and attendance at the meeting, CGS and CGG will each be offering awards to individuals with accepted abstracts to help with the registration costs of the meeting. Application for awards will open once acceptance of abstracts are confirmed.  Applications from trainees and Genetic Counsellors are particularly encouraged. To apply you need to have been a member of CGS or CGG for at least one year.
