Important Information

In view of the current situation, we would like to call attention to the following:
An increasing number of unauthorised websites, referring to the 14th World Congress of Biological Psychiatry, has been emerged lately. Those COPY CATS websites trick you into paying more for your registration, hotel, travel reservation etc. Therefore, we expressly refer to the fact that the mentioned actions can only be done through the authorised PCO, which will always provide you with official and secure platforms and documents in either written or online format. Resultant, please do not answer any phone calls requesting your personal information or credit card details. We do not consider any other provider to be reputable or reliable.
