Chair: Dr Ella Arensman, Ireland
These events will be held during the lunch break on Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th September 2013 between 13:30 - 14:30 at the Venue Kunst. All delegates are welcome and should bring their lunch to the meeting room. The aim of the Lunch with Experts sessions is to facilitate the sharing of specialist knowledge and expertise with conference participants in an informal way through dialogue and Q and A with the audience. Six well known experts in the field of suicide research and prevention: Paul Yip, Annette Beautrais, Jan Beskow, Nav Kapur, Silvia Sara Canetto, David Jobes, will discuss major achievements and new challenges in their areas of expertise. A stimulating experience for both young and older professionals!

The XXVII IASP Congress programme will include five 90-minute regional meetings to discuss challenges and solutions in suicide prevention. Meetings will be chaired by leading prevention experts from each region. Each regional meeting will feature brief presentations drawn from several national contexts on topics relevant to many of the region’s countries to stimulate discussion.
