The call for papers for the 2014 SSPC meeting, which will be held in San Diego from May 15 to 17, 2014 is now open. The theme of the meeting is Trauma, Recovery and
Culture. The deadline for abstract submission is September 16, 2013. This is an absolute and non-negotiable deadline. Therefore, potential speakers are urged to
submit abstracts as soon as possible. We welcome proposals for symposia, individual presentations, and a poster session.

As a guideline that is subject to change, designated keynote presentations will be one hour long, with twenty minutes for discussion, individual papers and symposia consisting of 3 presentations will be 30 minutes each, including 10 minutes for discussion.

There is an on-line abstract submission form posted at the SSPC website, www.psychiatryandculture.org, along with specific instructions for completing your proposal.
