13th World Congress of Biological Psychiatry in Copenhagen, Denmark

In 2017 this outstanding event will be held on 18 – 22 June 2017 in Copenhagen.
Following the impressive success of the 12th Congress of Biological Psychiatry in Athens, Copenhagen is believed to be an excellent setting to discuss the current progress in molecular biology, the development of novel drugs based upon new concepts, and the advances in modern neuroscience that will change our approach to psychiatric disorders and our attitudes towards mental health care.
Today, it is easy to envision a future where psychiatric diagnosis will be based on understanding fundamental defects in thinking, emotional processing, and motivational systems. Psychiatry is now well positioned to take advantage of the major advances achieved in the last few decades in neurobiology and cognitive sciences and to build on them. WFSBP with its unique complementarity between basic neuroscientists and clinical psychiatrists, coming from various cultural and geographical backgrounds, is an important tool for the future of psychiatry.
During the upcoming World Congress of Biological Psychiatry, worldwide opinion leaders will share with us the recent innovations in their respective fields which impact on diagnosis, treatment and quality of life of our patients.
High scientific level sessions will be organized:
  1. Plenary lectures, symposia, interactive workshops and debates.
  2. Young scientists are especially encouraged to present their recent findings through free communications, posters presentations and educational sessions. A good number of chairpersons of WFSBP Task Forces have already committed themselves to actively participate in the scientific program of the Copenhagen Congress.
 
Looking forward welcoming you in Copenhagen, one of the most beautiful cities not only in Europe but in the entire world.
