Dear Colleagues,

It is our privilege and special pleasure to welcome 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.

During the 12th 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 have been organized: plenary lectures, symposia, interactive workshops and debates, while a good number of WFSBP Task Forces will actively participate in the scientific programme through the presentation of Treatment Guidelines they currently publish.
