Stephen Typaldos D.O. initiated the first FDM World Congress in 2001 in Maine as well as the second conference in Anchorage/Alaska in 2005. After his death in 2006 the international FDM associations decided to continue these meetings regularly.
In the following years five International FDM Congresses were organized:
- 2007 Hawaii (USA)
- 2009 Osaka (JP)
- 2011 Vienna (AUT)
- 2014 Texas (USA)
- 2017 Cologne (GER)
The last congress took place in September 2017 in Cologne (Germany). It was organized for the second time in Europe by the EFDMA.

The next FDM World Congress will be hosted by the FDM Asian Association (FAA) and was planned for November 2020 in Osaka, Japan. Unfortunately the Congress had to be cancelled and postponed because of the current situation in the world. The new date is not fixed by now, details will follow.
The theme of this Congress is “Rediscovering FDM for the future”.
