Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear friends and colleagues,


I am honoured that for the first time in IASP history, the Centre for Research and Intervention on Suicide and Euthanasia (CRISE) and the city of Montréal have been chosen to host the IASP World Congress on a second occasion. The 28th IASP World Congress is shaping up to be an exciting event with an acclaimed international scientific committee already planning many special programme activities. Please mark the dates and do not hesitate to let me know your thoughts about how to make this event as enriching, exciting and fulfilling as possible.


This congress will bring together researchers, practitioners, helpline workers,  programme planners, graduate students and persons concerned with suicide bereavement, from a range of disciplines around the world. This is a joint congress with the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) and the Québec Association for Suicide Prevention (AQPS), and is sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO).  The official languages are English and French (the official language of the Province of Québec) and there will be simultaneous translation of all plenary and a selection of parallel sessions, with a possibility of sessions in Spanish as well. The congress theme, New Discoveries and Technologies in Suicide Prevention, focuses on presenting cutting-edge research and clinical insights from the beginning of the 21st century. However, as in all IASP Congresses, a full range of topics will be covered, from the latest discoveries in biology and genetics, to culturally sensitive prevention practices and suicidology and the arts. An official call for papers, symposium and workshop proposals will be available in January 2014 on the congress website, www.iasp2015.com.


June is a wonderful month to visit our beautiful city. The weather is generally pleasant, the days are long and the city’s outdoor cafés and festival atmosphere are blooming. We have reserved a range of hotels within a 10-minute walk from the congress venue, from luxury hotels to student residences, all at surprisingly low guaranteed rates, including breakfast and free internet. We look forward to welcoming you with a diverse programme to stimulate the mind, as well as great food and entertaining social events for the body and soul. We pride ourselves for our warm and personal hospitality. Your suggestions are welcome.  I look forward to collaborating with a wonderful team to create an interesting congress programme, and also for the opportunity to share the experience of this fabulous city with you.


Best regards,
