Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 21st European Congress of Psychiatry which will be held 6-9 April 2013, in the exciting city of Nice, France.

Following our tradition, the cities we visit for the European Congress of Psychiatry have a special relationship or history connected with psychiatry. EPA offers you a high-quality, multidisciplinary scientific programme that will provide a full review of the most important aspects of diagnosis and treatment in psychiatry, and of the latest achievements in this field.

The motto "Europe Challenges the Burden of Mental Disorders" is a call to contribute to the European psychiatrists’ efforts to improve mental health in Europe.

Congress highlights will therefore include Plenary Lectures, Pro & Con Debates, Symposia, Workshops, Free Communication Sessions, a dedicated European Early Career Psychiatrists Programme, CME Academia courses and sponsored symposia organised by leading pharmaceutical companies.

We are developing an array of activities that will allow participants the opportunity to interact and network with colleagues from Europe and around the world.

We invite clinicians and researchers to take part in the exchange of knowledge and experience to contribute to the scientific programme of our Congress by submitting their abstracts for Free Communications and Poster Presentations.

We look forward to welcoming you to the mediterranean city of Nice in 2013!
