At least until the end of May 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic all meetings and conferences of the EPF are suspended.

We extend all our good wishes to everyone, especially to those who fell ill, and we hope that you as a visitor of our website can stay healthy and safe.

Life matters first. In due course, we will start to deal scientifically with the psychic implications of this unprecedented situation which affects us all. For the time being, take care of yourself and those around you.
