The primary objective of the European Association of Psychosomatic Medicine EAPM is to promote an integrated psychosomatic / biopsychosocial approach to health and disease.

Every year, the EAPM hosts a conference. This annual gathering brings together experts in psychosomatic medicine to share knowledge and network, and thus advance the field. The conference language is English.

From 2 – 5 June, 2021, the 8th annual scientific conference of the European Association of Psychosomatic Medicine will be hosted by Danube University Krems, Austria, and will be held in Vienna.

To avoid potential bias and support independent discussion, we do not accept conflicted funding.

We are honoured to announce Austria’s Minister of Health Rudolf Anschober as opening speaker for EAPM 2021.

Not only does the EAPM symbolise the importance of a worldwide network in the psychosomatic field, the association also fosters strong ties between the different members and associated communities. The EAPM board decided to hold the annual meeting 2021 in Vienna, a great honour for us at Danube University. As the congress president, I am very proud to invite you to Europe’s most attractive capital, our beloved city of Vienna.

As an imperial conference and event centre, there is nothing like the Hofburg Vienna anywhere else in the world. For over 700 years, both past and modern history have been written within its walls.

Its location is unique: Cultural institutions – like museums, the opera, theatres and universities – are all conveniently situated within a few minutes’ walking distance. Hotels, restaurants and shopping options are located in direct proximity. The Hofburg Vienna is at the heart of Vienna, and Vienna is where the heart of Europe beats.

In most parts of the world our life has changed significantly since the COVID-19 pandemic! In these days, more than ever, we can realize how important health is. So we sincerely hope that you and your close ones are healthy.

Due to the restriction announced by the Austrian Federal Government, the 8th annual meeting of the European Association of Psychosomatic Medicine (EAPM) can´t take place from June 24th - 27th, 2020.

We know that this is very disappointing for many of you and we are really sorry about the inconvenience.

With the constantly changing situation and the probably longer lasting travel restrictions it is currently very difficult to assess when it will be possible and safe to run an international conference again. However, there was such an overwhelming interest in the EAPM conference in Vienna that the EAPM board decided to postpone the conference to next year. Many thanks also to organizers of the subsequent EAPM conferences for being so accommodating and making this change possible. We will immediately inform you as soon as we have further information about date and place of the EAPM conference 2021 in Vienna.

We would like to thank all the participants, authors, and colleagues for their support and warm encouragement in this difficult situation. Please continue to follow us on our website and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to welcoming you to the EAPM conference 2021 in Vienna!

Wish you all the best and stay healthy,

Christoph Pieh
On behalf of the conference committee
