Dear friends and colleagues

Psychiatric epidemiology: the foundation for prevention and treatment planning 

The 15th International Congress of the IFPE will be held in Bergen, Norway, on October 7-10, 2015. The congress welcomes a wide array of themes within the epidemiology of psychiatry and mental health, and plenary lectures will highlight how psychiatric epidemiology is the foundation for prevention and treatment planning. 

The city of Bergen is a busy tourist destination, offering a variety of culture, history and nature. If you want to extend your stay, Bergen offers easy access to fjords, glaziers and mountains. Bergen is a small and compact city with everything related to the conference within walking distance. The social program will include also informal options for young researchers in addition to the ordinary receptions and dinners. 

Bergen has an international airport with 35 direct international flights in addition to 20 domestic. There is a 30-minute shuttle bus service running every 15 minutes between the conference hotel and the airport. 

We warmly welcome you to Bergen.
