Event Overview
Welcome message:

We are delighted to announce ISAD 2014: Affective Disorders: Integrated approaches for the 21st Century, our seventh biennial conference which will take place in Berlin from 28th to 30th April 2014. Our last biennial meeting, held in London in 2012, was the largest yet and we very much hope to harness the excitement generated within the international Affective Disorders community for ISAD 2014.

The ISAD Biennial Conference is the most important gathering of the Affective Disorders community and is now an outstanding international meeting. The Scientific Programme this year will once again explore fundamental, clinical and translational issues in affective disorders, with plenary presentations and symposia.. Our programme brings together key opinion leaders from around the world, as well as many locally renowned experts.

The poster and oral communications sessions, drawn from our international call for abstracts, promise to be a feast of science, a melting pot of ideas and a great place to meet and talk to the top researchers of today and the future.

We would like to thank everyone who has worked diligently to organise this Congress, both in the International Society for Affective Disorders and scientists from around the world who’ve given their time freely. We are also very grateful to the many generous sponsors of the meeting and participants of the technical exhibition.

The venue for the conference will be the Hotel Intercontinental, Berlin, from 28th to 30th April 2014.

We look forward to an exciting meeting that promises great scientific debate and enjoyable social interaction. We very much hope you enjoy the Conference and your visit to the great city of Berlin in April 2014.

AFFECTIVE DISORDERS

What is an Affective Disorder?

The Medline Medical Dictionary gives this definition:

Main Entry: mood disorder
Function: noun: any of several psychological disorders characterized by abnormalities of emotional state and including especially major depressive disorder, dysthymia, and bipolar disorder — also called affective disorder

Examples are:

Unipolar Depression and its variants including:

  • Postpartum Depression
  • Atypical Depression
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Dysthmia and Cyclothymia
  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder
  • Panic Disorder
  • Phobias including Agoraphobia
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

About Mood Disorders

There are several types of mood disorders: major depression, bipolar disorder (also known as manic depression), dysthymia, and cyclothymia.

Symptoms of major depression include feelings of sadness, loss of interest in normally pleasurable activities (anhedonia), changes in appetite and sleep, loss of energy, and problems with concentration and decision-making. Episodes of dysthymia resemble depression but are milder and often last longer.

Bipolar disorder is characterized by alternating cycles of depression and mania. Symptoms of mania include elevated or expansive mood, inflated sense of self-esteem or self-importance, decreased need for sleep, racing thoughts, and impulsive behaviour. Episodes of hypomania are typically shorter in length and less severe than mania. Cyclothymia is marked by cycles of low-level depression and hypomania.

Women are twice as likely as men to experience major depression, while bipolar disorder occurs equally in women and men. Although the onset of these disorders can occur at any age, many individuals experience their first episode between the ages of 25 and 44.

It is important that mood disorders be accurately diagnosed and treated. Affective disorders can take an enormous toll on people’s ability to work, their relationships and family life. However, the proper treatment can not only help improve symptoms of these disorders, it can return people to a better quality of life.
