Dear Friends and Colleagues

The Eighth edition of the International Conference on Schizophrenia(IConS) will be held from August 30 to September 1, 2018 at Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. The theme of the conference is Strengthening links : Research and Interventions.

IConS VIII, 2018 will be an interactive environment, where researchers from all over the world meet, talk about and discuss developments in the field of Schizophrenia and related areas. Delegates who are young researchers eager to explore new emerging grounds in the field or are ardent practitioners in psychiatry or a trainee assessing professional pathways, find this conference a fertile ground for enhancing their knowledge in the field.

IConS, provides a wonderful opportunity to learn about the influence of a wide range of  factors that challenge the treatment and care of  Schizophrenia and in the development of innovative management practices. Biological and socio-cultural questions keep evolving, be it genetics, metabolic, epidemiological or stigma associated with mental illnesses. The conference covers the range of issues that impact the management of Schizophrenia.

Over the years, IConS has provided young mental health professionals an opportunity to show-case their talent. The Young Researcher Award aims to identify and promote research potential. The Poster competition is yet another opportunity for researchers and practitioners to display their work.

The 2018 conference will feature a Pre-conference workshop on Managing Dementias.

We look forward to interacting with you at Chennai in August-September 2018.
