Submit your proposal for 2020

After a hugely successful congress in London this year, we are looking for proposals for sessions and masterclasses for next year’s congress that will take place in Edinburgh on 29 June – 2 July.  

If you would like to help us shape the programme, please submit your proposal by 30 September 2019.

Submission guidelines

  • The committee would like to encourage proposals that present a diverse faculty including women, ethnic minority groups and patients and carers.
  • The congress has a very limited budget for speaker expenses and it may not always be possible to accept proposals with high associated costs
  • Each session and masterclass will be 75 minutes long. We expect 3 speakers and one chair per session and 2-3 speakers and one chair per masterclass
  • Please ensure you have contacted all speakers prior to submitting your proposal
  • Please do not submit poster abstracts. A separate call for poster submissions will be available in December
  • To submit your proposal please login to our submission portal where you will be able to 'sign up' and create a username and password. Once you have set up your account please complete all fields of the submission form

  • New science
  • Psychopharmacology
