ESSSB18 will be postponed

Due to the global crisis related to the COVID-19 pandemic, ESSSB18 will be postponed to late spring 2021.

Due to the global crisis related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ESSSB18 will be postponed to 2021.

Even if some European countries are cautiously easing COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, the pandemic is still not under control. In particular, at the present moment, it is difficult to foresee when travel bans worldwide will be lifted.
For this reason, we are now aiming at rescheduling the Congress in late spring 2021. Furthermore, we will reschedule the deadlines for registration and for proposals’ submission. We will re-open the calls for symposia, workshops and plenary lectures and offer the possibility to update those already submitted.
We will continue to monitor the global situation and to keep you updated.

Welcome

We are proud to invite you to the 18th edition of the European Symposium on Suicide and Suicidal Behaviour (ESSSB18).

The ESSSB is a biennial European symposium considered as the most important international meeting in the field of suicidology and suicide prevention in Europe. Moreover, the scientific standard at the biennial European symposium is now recognised as one of the best in the world. Researchers from all over the world present high-level scientific work and meet each other, exchanging knowledge and experiences.

The ESSSB18 will be held in Rome; the venue will be the same of the ESSSB13, which took place in Rome in 2010: The Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas, commonly known as the Angelicum. “Where we left off”

Rome is the symbol of the overlap of Modern and Classical culture: keeping the common spirit of the previous and successful ESSSB symposia, ESSSB18 through its high-quality, multidisciplinary scientific programme, will offer the opportunity to discuss the current state of the art about suicide prevention, focusing on novel perspectives, and will enable young researchers to meet and interact with experts in the field.

The suggestive location in Rome will make this experience even more unique: Rome offers a mixture of history, culture, gastronomy and nightlife. In this context we are determined to organise a stimulating congress and to make the participants’ stay in Rome memorable, keeping in mind that the most important aspect for any congress is that participants feel part of it, and that they can learn and exchange knowledge and ideas with colleagues and friends from around the world.
