Invitation to ICBM 2023

By 25 August 2022August 1st, 2023No Comments

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the next Congress of the International Society of Behavioral Medicine (ISBM). The Congress will take place August 23-26, 2023, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Vancouver’s famous modern cityscape is located on the Strait of Georgia, where the mountains touch the ocean. Vancouver is well-known for its diverse population, its hospitality and the natural beauty of the surrounding area.

The congress theme is “From Local to Global: Behavior, Climate and Health” and was inspired by the very location where the Congress is being held. Where better to discuss our future challenges and the role of behavioral medicine to address them, than in this international city?

We are planning an exciting four days of keynotes, master lectures, workshops, and symposia around our congress theme. In addition to our intellectually stimulating program, there will be plenty of time to meet friends and colleagues for connecting and socializing. And the Congress wouldn’t be complete without our traditional festive banquet, where we all celebrate ISBM’s accomplishments and visions together. The Congress officially opens on the evening of Wednesday, August 23, after a full day of workshops, and ends with the Closing Ceremony in the late afternoon of August 26, where we honour our outgoing President, Anne H. Berman, PhD, and welcome our incoming President, Kerry Sherman, PhD.

Stay tuned for more details in the upcoming months.
