Invitation to sponsors and exhibitors

On behalf of the organizing committee it is a great pleasure to welcome sponsors and exhibitors to the XXVIIth World Congress of the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP).

The IASP2013 Congress aims to provide a rich scientific programme highlighting the latest developments in suicidological research and prevention. More than one million lives are lost to suicide every year and many of these are young lives. The enormity of the problem of suicide calls for innovation and for creative and courageous efforts to bring new ideas and new knowledge into practical work in effective approaches to treatment and intervention.

This is a unique possibility for you as a sponsor or exhibitor to support the dissemination of novel ideas and knowledge to assist more effective suicide prevention worldwide. We know that this societal problem raises concern among the public, among politicians and at every level of society.

The congress is organized by the National Centre for Suicide Research and Prevention at the University of Oslo in collaboration with IASP and cosponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO). The congress is organized under patronage of HRH Crown Princess Mette-Marit.
Contact our congress secretariat today to ensure the best exhibition stands, sponsorship, and symposium opportunities. If you have not received the exhibition and sponsor ship invitation or the symposia invitation please send us an e-mail.

Best wishes,

Lars Mehlum M.D. Ph.D.
Professor of psychiatry and suicidology
