Call for Symposia and Workshops

Abstracts for symposia or workshops can now be submitted for the 15th World Congress of Biological Psychiatry in Vienna. Please note that submissions can only be made online.

Symposia and workshops at the 15th WFSBP Congress are scheduled for 90 minutes and should be comprised of two chairs and four speakers.

Chairs are kindly asked to submit proposals for scientific symposia and workshops according to the topic list below. All proposals submitted online will be considered by the International Scientific Programme Committee.

Notifications about acceptance or rejection of symposia and workshops will be sent by e-mail in October 2020. Speakers of accepted symposia and workshops will later on be asked to submit individual abstracts for their presentations.

All authors and presenters will be expected to declare any potential conflict of interest in the first slide of their presentation.

Chairs, co-chairs and speakers of accepted symposia and workshops will receive a 50 % discount on the regular congress fees. Please note that the congress does not provide any further financial support. Travel costs and accommodation should be self-financed.
