• 12th May: ABSTRACTS SUBMISSION Deadline *EXTENDED*
  • Dear colleagues:

    We wish to give you the most cordial welcome to the Joint Congress of the International Psychogeriatric Association and the Spanish Psychogeriatric Society,
    scheduled from 31 August to 3 September  2019.
    This is the largest event of the IPA since the Congress of San Francisco in 2016. The Congress will take place in the wonderful city of Santiago de Compostela,
    which for many of you will evoke fond memories of the 2010 International Meeting, which  brought together 800 people  from all parts of the world.
    The Congress motto reflects both the spirit of this city and the essence of IPA. Since the Middle Ages innumerable have been the pilgrims who crossed Europe to reach Santiago,
    walking from the East through the French Way, by boat from the North, the English Way, or by the Portuguese Way from the South. Many pathways, walkers with different cultures
    converging on a common goal, contributing thus to outline the concept of the future Europe.

Welcome


Dear colleagues:

We wish to give you the most cordial welcome to the Joint Congress of the International Psychogeriatric Association and the Spanish Psychogeriatric Society, scheduled from 31 August to 3 September  2019.

This is the largest event of the IPA since the Congress of San Francisco in 2016. The Congress will take place in the wonderful city of Santiago de Compostela, which for many of you will evoke fond memories of the 2010 International Meeting, which  brought together 800 people  from all parts of the world.

The Congress motto reflects both the spirit of this city and the essence of IPA. Since the Middle Ages innumerable have been the pilgrims who crossed Europe to reach Santiago, walking from the East through the French Way, by boat from the North, the English Way, or by the Portuguese Way from the South. Many pathways, walkers with different cultures converging on a common goal, contributing thus to outline the concept of the future Europe.

Few places in the world can better symbolize the aspiration of the IPA to constitute the agora in which the wide range of professionals necessary to improve the mental health of the elderly can be expressed. Activities as varied as basic research, clinical care, prevention; targeting proposals valid both for the people who live in their homes or in the different types of residential institutions (the kind we know today and those still waiting to be invented). In short, the IPA as a protective umbrella for professionals and a catalyst for knowledge.

In this context, you are invited to "pilgrimage" with your best baggage and share your knowledge and your illusions in the friendliest atmosphere. The venue of the Congress will be the noble building of the Faculty of Medicine, at the full disposal of the Congress, in the historic campus of the five-hundred-year-old University of Santiago de Compostela.

The collaboration of a broad Scientific Committee, led by John O'Brian, will ensure the configuration of a program of excellence, which will be enriched by  your contributions and will undoubtedly reflect the interdisciplinary model of the IPA. The first day, 31 August, will be devoted to workshops. Along the other days there will be plenty of room for plenary sessions, symposia, oral free communications and a large space for posters. We encourage you to make your scientific proposals by submittingyour abstracts.

On 30 August we will organize ONE DAY of the Camino to enter Santiago walking together and begin to share that fraternal spirit that we wish to preside over the entire Congress.

Last but not least, Santiago is a very tourist city, so we advise you to make your hotel reservations as soon as possible. We have managed to negotiate special rates with some hotels, a list that will be sent to the IPA members. Check the list of hotels suggested, and do not miss the deadlines to avoid shocks.

On behalf of the IPA and the SEPG, Welcome to Santiago de Compostela!
