ESPMH 2022

The new dates for the 34th ESPMH conference in Warsaw are 24-27 August 2022.

With a heavy heart but due to the persisting array of uncertainties accompanying the still ongoing COVID pandemic the ESPMH board and the hosts of the upcoming conference –  the Bioethics Committee of the Polish Academy of Sciences & the Center for Bioethics and Biolaw, University of Warsaw – have decided to postpone the conference once more to next year.

  • New deadline for abstract submission: 1 March 2022
  • New registration dates: 15 April 2022 (early bird); 1 June 2022 (regular registration)

NB: Participants whose abstract has already been accepted for the conference in Warsaw will be scheduled in the conference programme for August 2022. Registration fees already paid for the Warsaw conference will be valid for the 2022 conference.

The conference will focus on challenges posed by moral, religious and cultural diversity to healthcare, the life sciences and bioethics. More about the conference topics, venue, registration, and fees at the ESPMH web-site.
