following the success of our first two International Congresses in 2017 and 2019, we are cordially inviting you to join our 3rd International Congress scheduled for September 20-22, 2021 in Vienna, Austria.
This congress is intended again to provide a professional platform to promote basic research and to foster effective and safe treatment and prevention strategies for mental illnesses related to stress and anxiety such as depression, panic and social anxiety disorders, sleep disorders, PTSD, ADHD, schizophrenia, neurodegenerative disorders or the burn-out-syndrome.
We are very glad to cooperate at this congress with the Institute of Clinical Psychology at the University of Vienna, directed by Prof. Dr. Urs Nater, who is also heading a research platform to investigate processes and mechanisms underlying daily life stress. This unique cooperation will strengthen the congress focus on translational aspects of stress research and will provide new insights into successful clinical applications for the benefit of patients.
A note on the current global COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic: We plan this congress as an onsite event but given the unpredictability of the development of the pandemic and potential travel and meeting restrictions, we will be prepared to organize this congress as a virtual event at the same date. In any case, we will offer educational electures as part of the scientific program to increase our reach in Asia and America.
We look forward to your active support and participation in this International Congress!
Founding President WASAD
