Media opportunities at the ECNP Congress
Every year the ECNP press team promotes selected research presented at the ECNP Annual Congress. This tends to get good international press coverage – in 2016 our work was featured by the likes of the BBC, the New York Times, The Times, La Stampa, Die Welt, etc. The work needs to be newsworthy and based on good science or be clinically important, meaning that we only promote around 8 to 10 items each year from a much larger initial selection. If you would be interested in having us consider your abstract as part of our media programme, please indicate that on the abstract submission form.


Receipt of your submission will be confirmed by the ECNP Office via e-mail within two weeks. If you have not received a confirmation within this period, please notify the ECNP Office.

If it is not possible to submit your abstract via internet, please contact the ECNP Office. 


If your abstract is not accepted for publication and/or presentation, you can cancel your registration free of charge within 14 days after receiving the message that your abstract has been rejected and the registration fee paid will be returned within 30 days after the outcome.
