Browse through the programme
Our scientific programme is published on our congress website. You will find all sessions including abstracts of speakers and posters, as well as the programmes of the satellite symposia. Find the complete programme here.

If you are looking for an overview of all the sessions in one look, please view our Congress at a Glance.

New at the poster sessions:
This year almost 1,000 posters will be presented at the 27th ECNP Congress! A good time to introduce new features during the poster sessions…

  • Rapid-fire poster sessions, where 18 of the highest scoring poster presenters get the chance to present their data in a 5-minute e-poster session. The sessions are scheduled on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at 13.15-13.45.
  • Poster presenters have been invited to upload an e-poster. They will be visible on several terminals that are spread through the poster area.
  • Award winners will no longer receive their award in front of their poster in a busy isle, but during a ceremony on the poster podium in Hall B, where their poster will be displayed on a screen.
Brain Day

ECNP Brain Day 2014

This year for the first time, ECNP has organised an ECNP Brain Day in Berlin on Friday 17 October at the Radialsystem V. The goal of this day is to bring some of the science from the congress to the general public.

The programme will be in German, and the focus will be on how developments in brain research are turning into new treatments and better lives for those with disorders of the brain.

If you know people who might be interested in attending this day, please pass on the message! You can find more information and buy tickets on the Brain Day website. And visit our Brain Day Facebook page.

Junior Scientists

Junior scientists at the 27th ECNP Congress

Together with our Junior Member Advisory Panel (JMAP), we have developed a range of benefits at the congress, especially for junior researchers:
  • Visit the congress at a free or reduced registration rate (so register before 29 August!).
  • Win a Fellowship Award, Travel Award and/or a Poster Award.
  • Learn practical skills at the ‘Career development sessions’.
  • Attend the two Junior Scientist symposia and the Junior Scientist café.
  • Share your thoughts with us at the Junior Scientist ‘best practice’ session (invitation only).
  • Join us in the Homes Bar Berlin for a ‘science-on-the-rocks’ evening.
  • Relax in the Junior Scientists’ lounge.

We hope to see you!

Thank you Michael Davidson, welcome Andreas!
