A warm welcome and a great thank you goes out to all the chairpeople, speakers, delegates, poster presenters, and sponsors of the Winter Workshop on Psychosis conference 2013.
Photos from the conference are now available on the website in the left hand margin.
I would also like to send a warm thank you to all the staff here at Cortex who made the conference happen.
We do hope that you enjoyed the conference, venue, and Morocco and look forward to welcoming you to the next conference in 2014.
The Winter Workshop on Psychosis has a rich heritage and great tradition of top quality speakers and excellent scientific debate. Changes in recent times have unfortunately made it very difficult to maintain the conference in its old format, and although we have tried to adapt, it has not been possible to generate enough interest in the conference going forward as a standalone event. For this reason it has been decided to merge the conference with the International Review of Bipolar Disorders (IRBD) to create the International Review of Psychosis and Bipolarity Annual Conference.
The Winter Workshop on Psychosis will then become a one day event of challenging, research-orientated, high quality scientific presentations and debate at the front of the more clinically and patient-orientated IRPB conference.
The European Bipolar Forum is also being extended to include e-learning opportunities, task force activities and discussion fora involving more specifically the topic of Psychosis. To this end it will be changing its name to become the International Forum of Psychosis & Bipolarity.
With my best wishes
