14th World Congress of Biological Psychiatry

Vancouver,

The 14th World Congress of Biological Psychiatry, a biennial conference of the World Federation of the Societies of Biological Psychiatry (WFSBP), will take place in Vancouver, Canada, from 2 - 6 June 2019.

The theme of the congress “Neuroscience Discoveries and Translation to Clinical Practice” was chosen to address two major challenges plaguing the field of mental health i.e. slow progress in new discoveries and barriers to evidence based application of new discoveries in day-to-day clinical practice to improve patient care.

The congress will address cutting edge topics through plenaries, roundtable debates, workshops, symposia and short oral presentation sessions. Priority will be given to symposia and workshop proposals that report on new methods and tools in biological psychiatry and psychopharmacology and their translational aspects.
