12TH WORLD CONGRESS OF BIOLOGICAL PSYCHIATRY
Megaron Athens International Conference Centre #ATHENS , GREECE
It is our privilege and special pleasure to invite you to the 12th World Congress of Biological Psychiatry; the World Federation of Societies of Biological Psychiatry (WFSBP) has chosen Athens for its World Congress in June 14th – 18th, 2015.
Following the impressive success of the 11th Congress of Biological Psychiatry in Kyoto, a real milestone in the history of WFSBP, Athens is believed to be the ideal 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: Plenary lectures, symposia, interactive workshops and debates. Young scientists are especially encouraged to present their recent findings through free communications, posters presentations and young scientist award sessions. A good number of chairpersons of WFSBP Task Forces have already committed themselves to actively participate in the scientific programme of the Athens Congress.
However, we rely on the most meaningful participation of many colleagues from all over the world in order to make our next congress another milestone in WFSBP history. Thus, we are looking forward to welcome you in Athens, the heart of European culture and civilization, and to receive you according to the traditional Greek hospitality.
With our best personal regards
