The World Congress of Psychiatry will take place in Vienna, Austria from September 28 until October 1, 2023. Numerous symposia, panel discussions, state-of-the-art sessions and lectures will be offered. The program will be exciting as we will be discussing the latest developments in the field in a pandemic and post-pandemic era. All aspects of psychiatry such as psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, psychopathology, rehabilitation, social psychiatry, old-age psychiatry or child-adolescent psychiatry will be covered. Beside the scientific program, this congress will give the opportunity to discuss the most recent developments for psychiatry all over the world. Trainees in psychiatry will be invited to meet international experts and meet their colleagues.
