19th European Symposium
on Suicide and Suicidal Behaviour

24-27 August, 2022 - Copenhagen, Denmark

Now more than ever …

Dear All,

We look forward to welcoming you to the European Symposium for Suicide and Suicidal Behaviour (ESSSB) starting August 24th, 2022 in Copenhagen!

We have received an abundance of abstracts, which have been reviewed by the Scientific Committee and are now being processed. We anticipate that responses to the submitted abstract will sent out in the beginning of May.

The symposium will be an in-person event only. Being the first, truly international conference on suicide prevention in almost 3 years, we strongly believe that it is time to promote personal meetings and stimulate networking. This will be further enhanced by the fact that the ESSSB will be held in the Maersk Tower, a new architectural pearl that was designed to accommodate spontaneous encounters and discussions throughout the building. We apologize for any inconvenience that the in-person only policy might cause and hope for your understanding. The ESSSB has a very flexible refund policy for registration fees in order to accommodate unforeseen changes.

To further promote networking, we offer to accommodate network meetings on the first day of the ESSSB, e.g. for IASP Special Interest Groups and any other group. All participants are welcome to attend these meetings, which are free of charge. If you are interested in hosting a meeting, please get in touch.

In terms of covid-19, the situation in Denmark looks prosperous. All pandemic restrictions were removed a couple of months ago and the numbers of COVID-19 infections have continued to decline. More than 82% of the total population (aged 0+) have been fully vaccinated.

Even the weather is getting better! Copenhagen was recently sporting temperatures around 18 cel.
