|The organising committee has made an effort to give
special attention to the young psychiatrists attending
A young psychiatrists' lounge will be available with
a capacity of hosting about 50 people with coffee, drinks,
snacks and a poster board. This lounge will provide
a special meeting point for the exchange of information
and professional experiences.
The Meet the Expert Sessions are designed to primarily
target psychiatrists of the younger generation. In these
sessions, four leading figures of European psychiatry
(Prof. J. Angst, Switzerland; Prof. G. Sedvall, Sweden;
Prof. I. Brockington, UK; Prof. R. Murray, UK) will
interact freely with a group of about 100 psychiatrists.
During each session, a young psychiatrist will introduce
the expert by outlining the main stages of his scientific
and professional career. After this introduction, the
participants will be invited to interact freely with
the expert. The interaction will primarily focus on
the expert's research interests and professional experience
as well as on perspectives for future research. The
facilitator of each session will be a young psychiatrist
proposed by the European Federation of Psychiatric Trainees.
Those interested in participating in these sessions
should pre-register (at no extra cost).
The organising committee has compiled the following
list of selected events that may also be of special
interest to younger colleagues:
