Dear ISPNE community,

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing concerns regarding travel and in-person congregation, we have postponed our face-to-face meeting. However, despite the pandemic, we still want to unite this year as a society and share and support our research through a shorter virtual meeting, that will be held on September 7th to 9th, 2021.  Our virtual conference will feature the theme “Psychoneuroendocrinology at the Interface with Immunology”. However, submissions and content on all aspects of Psychoneuroendocrinology are welcome.

For accessibility and solidarity, we will offer free registration for all members of ISPNE, so please renew or register for membership if you have not done so already! We hope you will contribute to this virtual conference with your valuable work, or just join us to listen to the science of your colleagues and engage in stimulating conversation!  All accepted abstracts will be published in Psychoneuroendocrinology! 

Further information on the schedule, the programme and the submission guidelines and deadlines for abstracts and symposium, will be published soon. 

The ISPNE community is a strong one, and we look forward to connecting with you virtually this year, and in-person in 2022, September 8th-10th, when we will welcome you with the “Psychoneuroendocrinology Across the Lifespan” theme and the originally planned location (The Blackstone Hotel, Chicago, IL).
