It is a special pleasure to invite psychiatrists, neurologists, pharmacologists, basic neuroscientists, social and behavioural scientists as well as any professional involved in neuropsychiatric research and/or clinical care to a joint congress event consisting of the “16th Annual Meeting of Geriatric Psychoneuropharmacology" and the "5th International Congress on Psychiatry and the Neurosciences". These congresses are organized jointly by the International College of Geriatric Psychopharmacology (ICGP) and the Hellenic Society for the Advancement of Psychiatry and Related Sciences (HSAPRS); moreover, they are being co-sponsored by the Hellenic Psychogeriatric Association (HPA), the World Federation of Societies of Biological Psychiatry (WFSBP), and the International Neuropsychiatric Association (INA). Having been honoured through the active engagement of these respectable international scientific organisations, our main aim is to promote the interface and interaction among various disciplines as they relate to Neuropsychiatry and Geriatric Psychopharmacology. As ambitious as it might be, our effort in planning the integrated congress programme shall be to seek for any convergence of all relevant disciplines in quest of constructive synthesis, which could eventually lead to the betterment of research outcome and clinical care in Neuropsychiatry and Geriatric Psychiatry.
The joint congress you are invited to will take place in Athens from the 6th to the 8th of October 2016 and it is hosted by HSAPRS. It actually represents a continuation of a series of annual meetings organized by ICGP since 2000 and of biannual congresses organised by HSAPRS since 2004.
In the upcoming 2016 Congress, the many prominent scientists who will feature as our guest speakers and who will share with us their knowledge and experience are the best guarantee toward a successful outcome; yet, we kindly request and count on your active participation through the presentation of your work on topics related either to Geriatric Psychoneuropharmacology or to the broader interface of Psychiatry and the Neurosciences. Your submissions will be most welcome and your particular contributions highly appreciated. The hosts shall spare no effort in making your participation scientifically rewarding and meaningful and your stay in Athens as enjoyable as possible. We are confident that you will carry pleasant memories of this occasion. So just reserve your dates; we are looking forward to welcoming you in Athens.
