The 24th European Congress of Psychiatry (EPA 2016), taking place 12-15 March 2016 in Madrid, Spain, will be a major meeting of international psychiatrists dedicated to promoting European psychiatry and to improving mental health around the globe. On behalf of the European Psychiatric Association (EPA), it is our great pleasure to invite you to join us at this occasion.
Guided by the motto Towards a Common Language in European Psychiatry, we are preparing a top-notch scientific programme that will cover the newest achievements in the field covering basic, clinical and translational research, and their application to evidence-based practice in diagnosis, treatment and education.
Through a variety of session types, including Plenary Lectures, EPA Academia Educational courses and a dedicated European Early Career Psychiatrists Programme, EPA 2016 will meet the needs of all participants, from trainees in psychiatry to the most esteemed experts.
The EPA is committed to helping psychiatrists network, share research and learn from their colleagues and peers across Europe and beyond. Accordingly, we have developed an array of activities at the European Congress of Psychiatry which will allow these valuable connections to continue and flourish.
We look forward to welcoming you to the enchanting city of Madrid in 2016.
