Under the theme "Our Heritage and Our Future," the congress aims to provide a comprehensive overview of those achievements
that have stood the test of time and of the most promising current trends in psychiatric research and practice, with the contribution
of the most prominent experts of the various topics.
An outstanding scientific program is being put together, according to Mario Maj, M.D., the president of the World Congress.
