The International Congress of Human Genetics is the foremost meeting of the world human genetics community and is held every five years. The first Congress was in 1956 in Copenhagen and subsequent venues have included Berlin, Washington, Rio de Janeiro and most recently Vienna. The 10th Congress in Vienna in May 2001 was attended by over 3000 delegates from 79 countries. The Washington Congress was attended by over 5000 delegates. The Congress is organised on behalf of the International Federation of Human Genetics Societies (IFHGS) and in 2006, the host will be the Human Genetics Society of Australasia.By 2006 the tangible impact on human health of the Human Genome Project and advances in genomic science and biotechnology will make attendance at the 11th Congress essential for health professionals and genetic scientists alike. The proximity of Brisbane to the flourishing genomics and biotechnology hubs of Asian centres is expected to provide significant exposure to delegates from these areas. These are in addition to the traditional delegates from North America, Europe and Australia. Brisbane, the capital city of the State of Queensland, is also a major genomics and biotechnology hub in its own right
