It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 15th International Conference of the Association of Psychology and Psychiatry for Adults and Children (A.P.P.A.C.). The Conference will be held in Athens, on May 4 – 7, 2010.

This year’s Conference theme is “Neuropsychiatric, Psychological and Social Sciences Today”.

During the last years, the International Congresses of the A.P.P.A.C. became established annual meeting points, where participants have the opportunity to get in touch with the latest knowledge and exchange ideas with worldwide distinguished experts from different scientific areas, in a true multidisciplinary approach.

The 15th International Conference, will try to work further towards this direction, bringing participants closer to the progress on scientific research concerning clinical psychiatry, psychopathology, psychology, new diagnostic and treatment methods, genetics, and neurosciences. In our Conference, we will once more emphasise the human dimension, linking science with society. To this end, there will be some sessions with the participation of social workers, nurses, social anthropologists, educators etc.

The Conference will also serve the educational mission of the A.P.P.A.C.: it will give CME credits to certify that the participants have taken part in accredited education activities.

Attending this meeting in Athens, will also be an opportunity to discover, or rediscover, a city of unique charm with a rich cultural and humanitarian tradition. Athens is ideally suited to provide an atmosphere of true international spirit as the city has learned to deal successfully with the diversities of systems and the coexistence of different cultures. Today, the Greek capital is a modern, lively, vibrant, fascinating and beautiful city, with historic, cultural, scientific and modern achievements, a city you will enjoy to visit.

After the success of the 1st International Psychiatric Symposium in Penteli on May 5, 2009, the Organising Committee decided to re-arrange this event in 2010 during the 15th Congress, so on May 4, 2010 we are expecting you in the 2nd International Psychiatric Symposium.

The programme of the Symposium will include:
1) Gathering at A.P.P.A.C. offices in Maroussi
2) Visit to the Child's Foundation SIKIARIDIO (in Maroussi) - Coffee
3) Visit to the DIMIOURGIA Foundation for people with special needs (in Geraka)
4) Visit to the Psychiatric Section of SISMANOGLIO General Public Hospital (in Melissia)
5) Visit to the LYRAKOU Psychiatric Clinic (in Melissia) - Light meal

On May 4, 2010, after the Penteli Symposium, we have arranged a visitation to the Acropolis Museum. The tour will last for almost 2hrs and after that, you will have the opportunity to visit the area where the coffee and the gift shops are located. The bus will return to the Athens Hilton Hotel.

Fees include transportation, tickets and a museum guide.

All accepted abstracts of registered participants, will be published in the Abstract Book, which will be distributed at the Conference and will be published in the “A.P.P.A.C. ARCHIVES” journal (almost 6,500 doctors subscribers).
