The 10th International Conference of the International Lymphoedema Framework


Welcome to ILF 2021 - IN-PERSON OR ONLINE

Update 7 October 2021

The International Lymphoedema Framework (ILF) - in collaboration with the Danish Wound Healing Society (DSWS) and the Danish Lymphoedema Framework (DNL/DLF) - are pleased once again to confirm that the 10th International Lymphoedema Framework Conference (ILF 2021) takes place in-person on 18 – 20 November 2021 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

More than 500 delegates from around the world have already registered and we still hope for more to join.

We are well aware that colleagues and patients from some countries have difficulties about travelling to Denmark.

It is therefore our pleasure to announce, that we will be offering the possibility of online participation at the ILF 2021 Conference.

Furthermore, we are happy to introduce a special reduced price for online attendance for participants from lower-resource countries.

This decision is based on a strong wish to include all interested participants worldwide, and - despite COVID-19 restrictions and travel difficulties - to allow for a global audience to join the international lymphoedema community during a three days exciting programme. 

We remain confident that the ILF 2021 Conference will run safely and successfully and hope that many of us will have the opportunity to meet again, either in presence or online. We encourage you to register and benefit from an extended scientific programme, engaging industry symposia, a special Patient Day, and social and networking events.

Join us in Copenhagen – in-person or online! 

ILF 2021 Conference: COVID-19 information
Travelling to Denmark

In Denmark, the COVID-19 situation is well under control, and currently more than 72% of the population is fully vaccinated. You can enter Denmark even from yellow or orange countries if fully vaccinated, with a negative test or if previously tested positive for COVID-19. It is no longer mandatory to wear a facemask in Denmark but even though many restrictions have been abolished, the safe and comfort of the ILF participants is our absolute priority.  The venue has integrated all necessary safe and relevant standard procedures and processes as well as specific protocols for essential tasks such as cleaning, food preparation etc.

Corona passport

Corona passport is only mandatory at airports, in nightclubs and bars. You will not be asked to show your corona passport at the conference centre. COVID-19-testing in Denmark is free of charge for all nationalities. All COVID-19 test centres can be found here. 

Please find more information on COVID-19 travel rules in Denmark here.

We are working hard to plan and offer an attractive and memorable conference for the lymphoedema and wound care communities on the 18 - 20 November 2021. Please find more information about conference topics and the preliminary scientific programme available online on this website.
