2021 Congress of the Schizophrenia International Research Society

Join us at the 2021 Congress of the Schizophrenia International Research Society (SIRS) to be held in a virtual format, 17-21 April 2021. SIRS first North American annual congress in 2019 attracted almost 900 researchers from 38 countries. This year’s theme is Bringing Precision Medicine to Mental Health Services.

We invite you to submit your presentation for the 2021 Virtual Conference where you will have more ways than ever to interact with attendees! In addition to uploading an ePoster, each presenter will have the opportunity to submit a sound file with a voiceover of their presentation that attendees can view at any time during the conference. Each poster will have a public discussion board where attendees can post questions and comments for the presenter throughout the conference. The virtual conference platform will also offer a chat feature for individual or one-on-one messaging with attendees. Most importantly, presenters will have the opportunity to provide a link to a video conference room that will be made available during their designated poster session date and time so that attendees can drop in and chat with presenters face to face!  See the registration details, poster/oral submissions, honorific award submissions and Early Career Award submissions below!
