Welcome to the DGPPN Congress 2020

Special times require special measures. The entire team is currently working hard to make the congress a special shared experience this year as well. The DGPPN Congress as a digital event is currently being examined. More information soon here.

Registration for the DGPPN Congress 2020 is open and you are able to submit your scientific contributions. Please note, that the official language at the congress is German. Only a small part of the programme will be held in English.
