|Taking into account your responses to the ‘Call for Ideas’, we
have identified a number of sub-themes that may interest you when you
send in a proposal to the Boston Congress Scientific Programme
Committee. Our main objective is to have a Congress where you have
an opportunity to work in depth on contemporary issues, to discuss with
colleagues the challenges we face in our clinical practice, and to
determine which answers fit best with psychoanalytic theory.

The deadline for us to receive all proposals is 7 September 2014.
A decision will be made on the acceptance or non-acceptance of all proposals, except Individual Papers, by 30 November 2014.
A decision will be made on the acceptance or non-acceptance of all Individual Papers by 8 February 2015.
Registration for the Congress and accommodation booking at specially-negotiated rates will open in early 2015.
IPA Congresses normally receive far more
proposals than there is room for at the Congress so please be aware that
many high-quality proposals may regretfully have to be declined.
Even though you may send in any number of proposals, the PC will follow
the longstanding policy of generally limiting each participant to one
activity in the programme. Therefore, if you include a colleague in your
proposal who is in another activity accepted for the Congress that
colleague may be asked to step down from involvement in your activity.
Simultaneous interpretation will be available for selected activities at
the discretion of the Programme Committee. Please do not request
simultaneous interpretation for your proposal.
Please be aware that the IPA will not pay for any paper you propose to be translated or copied in connection with the Congress.
