Largest gathering of NF scientists and clinicians

First held in 1985 as a roundtable of 20 participants, the NF Conference is now the most important scholarly gathering of the NF research and clinical communities. The NF Conference is a global event, attracting more than 300 participants worldwide across a wide range of scientific disciplines, from research and clinical backgrounds, all focused on improving outcomes for patients with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) and schwannomatosis. The NF Conference is a critical forum for consensus building and advancing basic, translational, and clinical research in NF and related fields, while fostering collaborations within and beyond the NF community. Importantly, the NF Conference is a key venue for attracting and growing new investigators in NF research and clinical care.



CTF was recently made aware of "pirate" housing companies and travel agencies that aggressively pursue conference attendees to book their guest rooms at supposedly significant discounts. Do not be misled by companies that solicit you via email or over the phone and misrepresent themselves as the NF Conference official housing provider. We wish to make clear to our attendees that MCI France is the only official housing provider for the 2018 Joint Global NF Conference.  Neither CTF nor MCI have any affiliation with these organizations and we do not endorse their services. In addition, neither CTF nor MCI will contact you individually regarding your lodging unless we are responding to your direct inquiry.   

If you need any assistance in booking your hotel room during the conference, please contact MCI directly  - or
