Religious festivals
In scheduling the ECNP Congress, ECNP takes account of the religious festivals of all the major European faiths. However, because not all dates are always available to us, overlaps are very occasionally unavoidable. In these situations we make great efforts to ensure that the overlap – and any inconvenience to our participants – is as minimal as possible.
