24th World Congress of the International Association of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry & Allied Professions (IACAPAP)
The 24th World Congress of the International Association of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry & Allied Professions (IACAPAP) has been postponed and converted to a virtual conference which will take place from 2nd – 4th December 2020. Organized on an entirely digital platform, the virtual conference will boast some seven keynote and plenary sessions as well as eleven state-of-the-art lectures, and with more than sixty break-out sessions. Among the over 100 international and regional speakers include eminent professors, scientists and clinicians such as Michael Meanny, Eric Chen, Michael Hong, Gabrielle Carlson, James Hudziak, Guilhernme V. Polanczyk, Olayinka Omigbodun and Daniel Fung, to name a few.
The virtual conference will also feature a suite of programs typical of a live congress such as e-posters, messaging boards for Q&As and personal connections, as well as a virtual exhibition space. Staggered timing schedules of the conference sessions have also been planned to allow delegates from different time zones to participate in live sessions while having access to recorded sessions by earlier speakers from a different time zone. The first thousand registered delegates would also receive a complimentary electronic or print copy of the IACAPAP monograph. With registration fees starting from USD95, the organizing committee hopes to attract a greater participation from medical students, residents and early-career professionals.
