Science of the Congress


We look forward to welcoming you to beautiful Hamburg, Germany for the XXth World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics, 14 – 18 October 2012. Psychiatric genetics is the application of empirical quantitative and molecular methods to understand the genetic underpinnings of mental illness. WCPG is the major psychiatric genetics meeting of the year, where hundreds of researchers and clinicians from all over the world converge to discuss advances in the field.

We hope you will be an active participant in the XXth World Congress by submitting an abstract for oral or poster presentation.  Abstract submission for educational and symposia presentation is closed.

Make plans to participate in the premier meeting in the field. The World Congress will include the most cutting-edge science in our field, but will also allow each of us to look at where psychiatric genetics has progressed over the past 20 years and where the new leaders will lead us tomorrow.

Make plans to attend the XXth World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics in Hamburg, Germany, 14 – 18 October 2012!
