The Congress program includes sessions presenting original research as well as practical workshops. In addition, a Young Researcher’s Award is granted to best oral and poster presentations.

Former Wingate Congresses have been attended by over 1000 participants from Australia, Austria, Romania, Spain, UK, Turkey, India, Italy, Canada, USA, New Zealand, Germany, Holland, France, Hungary, the Ukraine, Russia and China, among others. In these exciting encounters, researchers from almost every corner of the world engaged in scientific and social dialogue over the three days of lectures, workshops, and social events. Social events include an opening banquet and a closing evening. In addition, a guided tour to Jerusalem and the Dead Sea is offered providing an opportunity for participants, especially those visiting Israel for the first time, to see the holy sites of the country.
