After much consideration we regret to advise that that the WPA Human Factors in Crises and Disasters Thematic Conference 2013 scheduled for 30 September to 2 October has been cancelled.
Despite a strong program and every effort to attract delegates, the conference has not achieved minimum attendance and consequently significant sponsorship funding has been withdrawn. A further factor impacting attendance is the upcoming World Psychiatric Association International Congress in Vienna taking place in the same month. In light of these issues, the decision has been taken to cancel the event.
Thank you for your support of this conference to date and we hope you will understand the circumstances under which we have made this decision. We once again apologise for the inconvenience caused.
