Conference information

The 9th European Conference on Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders will be held from 8 to 11 June 2016 in Warsaw.

The objective of this conference, organised by the European Society for the Study of Tourette Syndrome along with the Polish Tourette Syndrome Association and Karpeno PR, is to present the most current medical and scientific achievements in diagnosing and treating the Tourette syndrome and related disorders. This event will be an opportunity to not only broaden knowledge on Tourette syndrome, but also to exchange ideas and experiences with specialists from all around Europe, in order to seek new solutions based on the information shared during workshops and lectures. In Warsaw, specialists from multiple fields will be able to present their own findings and get acquainted with the results of other scientists' work. 

The conference program features pre-conference workshops, which will focus on the nature and the assessment of Tourette syndrome and tic disorders, as well as on the treatment with the use of behavioural therapy. The three-day lectures will tackle questions of genetics, neurology, psychotherapy and pharmacological therapy. The specialists will also address an important issue of comorbidity of Tourette syndrome and other disorders.

The European Conference on Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders is mainly targeted at scientists, medical practitioners, and other specialists interested in the study of the diagnosis and treatment of Tourette Syndrome and related conditions. We would like to invite the researchers and health professionals with academic, medical or scientific background, governmental and non-profit organisations, medical health carers and postgraduate students to participate in the conference. Specialists in neurology, psychiatry, paediatrics, general and family practice, psychology, psychotherapy, pharmacy, and biotechnology are especially welcome to register.

We hope that the conference held in Warsaw, just like its previous editions, will result in achieving milestones in the assessment and treatment of Tourette syndrome and related disorders.
