Organized by Sociedad Española de Patología Dual (SEPD), co-sponsored by the World Psychiatric Association and with the collaboration of the Ministry of Health and the Generalitat de Catalunya, the II International Congress on Dual Disorders will take place in Barcelona on 5-8 October 2011.
Due to the high interest and involvement obtained by the previous edition of this congress, it is our aim to establish this conference as an international reference, a platform on the latest Dual Disorders updates.
We wish to have a congress for all, in which the contributions through the diverse ways of participation: symposia, workshops, meetings with the expert, oral communications and posters will provide a real possibility of participating to all those attending the meeting.
There will also be a special section for Parallel Symposia on Self Medication and Self Regulation in Dual Diagnosis.
The Congress will be held at the Hotel Sants Barceló, a five star hotel which provides the necessary infrastructure to carry out successfully congresses and exhibitions. The organisers are carefully designing a high quality appealing scientific programme, and an excellent social program as well as an attractive accompanying persons program will be offered.
Barcelona is a cosmopolitan city with an intense cultural and artistic life, and a very active night life. Barcelona’s airport handles daily a large number of national and international flights, providing professionals from any part of the world an easy access to the city.
For this II International Meeting, we are proud to inform that we have received the co-sponsorship of both World Psychiatric Association (WPA) as well as that of National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).
