The European Congress of Psychiatry will serve the educational mission of the EPA by providing high-quality Continuous Medical Education Courses, covering all aspects of psychiatry. Fees are charged separately for the courses.
The state-of-the-art lectures will have a strong clinical focus. They will provide a complete update on some signifi cant aspects of current clinical treatments in European psychiatry. The state-of-the-art lectures will be delivered by top European or worldwide experts and will last 45 minutes.
The plenary lectures will have a strong scientific focus. They will be mainly theoretical and research-oriented. These lectures will be delivered by leading psychiatrists, basic scientists and other mental health professionals invited by the Scientific Committee. They will cover the major topics of the Congress theme.
The Core Symposia will focus on clinical issues and will constitute the central element of the Congress.
These 90 minute sessions will focus on specific topics in psychiatry, representing several points of view. The presentations will be selected by the Scientific Committee from those proposed.
These will include a maximum of four papers and time for discussion at the end of the session. All participants must have formally agreed to participate prior to submission of the proposal. The chairperson will announce the participants with the electronic submission of the symposia and will also ask them to submit their abstracts electronically via the Congress website: www.kenes.com/epa. It is highly desirable that a Symposium comprises no more than two speakers from the same nationality. All members of the faculty of a session should be self-financed.
The Accepted Workshops will be devoted to a specific topic and bring together experts in this field for an intensive discussion. These will be 90 minute working sessions. At least 50% of the time will be devoted to discussion. Workshops can have one or more speakers. Only one abstract is required for the whole workshop (no abstracts of individual presentations are needed).
The presentations will be selected by the Scientific Committee from those proposed following the instructions contained in this announcement. All participants of a workshop should be self-financed.
