The American Psychosomatic Society invites abstract submissions for the next Annual Meeting, March 20-23, 2024 in Brighton, United Kingdom.

Submit your abstract here.

The APS Annual Meeting is an open scientific and clinical forum where investigators from allied disciplines pool their knowledge, consider problems of conceptual relationships, and develop ideas that will stimulate further research.

The meeting is devoted to the presentation of scientific papers, symposia, workshops, poster sessions, and invited lectures, and special attention is given to networking opportunities to foster ongoing relationships within the community.

We invite you to contribute to the exchange of information and ideas by submitting your research. Submissions that address the meeting theme of Biopsychosocial Health in Context” are particularly encouraged. Limited competitive travel scholarships are available to authors to assist with the cost of attendance.  Information on how to apply will be on the APS website in the coming weeks.

The deadline for abstract submissions is September 15, 2023 at 5pm EST.

More about the theme:
Contextual and environmental factors have a significant influence on biopsychosocial health and well-being across the lifespan. The American Psychosomatic Society (APS) has been dedicated to understanding and addressing such contextual and environmental factors since it was founded in 1942. At its 81st Annual Meeting in 2024, APS will emphasize thematic programming that highlights the diverse contexts and environments in which health and well-being are shaped, as well as contextually- and environmentally-informed mechanistic and intervention approaches.

Among some of the contextual factors to be thematically featured in meeting programming are (a) structural and systemic determinants of health; (b) historical context and health; (c) community-oriented approaches to research; (d) multilevel and lifespan socioeconomic conditions; (e) social relationships and networks; (f) physical and built environment determinants of biopsychosocial health; (g) climate and natural environmental contexts; and (h) medical illness, healthcare system, and clinical provider contextual influences on health.

Programming will also highlight work on processes, pathways, and moderators of contextual and environmental influences on biopsychosocial health. The 2024 Annual Meeting will also feature clinically- and policy-relevant science on contextually- and mechanistically-informed solutions and multilevel intervention approaches to promote biopsychosocial health.
