Borderline Congress postponed to 2022!

Dear colleagues,

it is with regret that the board of the ESSPD has decided today, in light of the global pandemic, to postpone the 6th International Congress on Borderline Personality Disorder and Allied Disorders to September 2022. Paramount in our decision making was

the health and safety of our attendees and the wider community. Whilst we sincerely hope that most countries will be through the worst of the consequences of Covid-19 by September this year, we cannot be certain that this will be the case and significant travel and social contact restrictions may remain in place for the well-being of all.  We look forward to welcoming you to the 6th International Congress on Borderline Personality Disorder and Allied Disorders in 2022!

With best wishes for your safety and for those that you care for,

Stephan Doering and Babette Renneberg

No plans to postpone or cancel the congress!

Due to the current situation with Covid-19 and strong restrictions in many countries, we know that participants are asking questions about the 6th International Congress on Borderline Personality Disorder and Allied Disorders in September 2020 in Antwerp, Belgium. Our first step is:

We extend the deadline for submission of abstracts until April 30, 2020.

As of today (March 18, 2020), we have no plans to postpone or cancel the Borderline Congress. We are grateful for the ongoing support of our sponsors and exhibitors, but also for the delegates to continue to register and to submit abstracts. We are in close contact with the relevant health authorities and remain watchful but also focused on delivering an excellent congress. We can assure that appropriate sanitary and health measures will be in place at the congress in Antwerp. We will keep you updated on any important changes in our plans.

The health of our attendees is of course our priority!

We are looking forward to welcome you to the 6th International Congress on Borderline Personality Disorder and Allied Disorders in Antwerp at the end of September!

May the curve of infection rates flatten soon.

With best wishes,

Stephan Doering and Babette Renneberg
