J-EUNETHYDIS is the international forum for early career ADHD researchers and early career clinicians engaged in research on ADHD

The J-EUNETHYDIS International Conference 2018 will take place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre in Edinburgh, Scotland on Sunday 23rd September 2018.

J-EUNETHYDIS is for up and coming ADHD researchers who are:

a. 3rd or 4th year Ph.D. students

b. Post-Doctoral Fellows within 5 years of completing their Ph.D.

c. Clinicians who are undertaking a Master’s or Doctoral degree or are conducting research (pertinent to ADHD) as part of their specialty training.

The J-EUNETHYDIS Scientific Conference Programme is very much focused on participation and all attendees will be encouraged and supported to engage and get involved with the discussions. The programme will be centred on a series of oral presentations grouped into themes and delivered by the J-EUNETHYDIS participants.

The Scientific Committee will select presenters based on their J-EUNETHYDIS abstracts submissions. This gives those presenting a great opportunity to present their research to an audience of peers and selected senior researchers in the field. For those who are not presenting it gives a fantastic opportunity to hear some of the latest developments in our field and to get involved in the scientific debate that follows.

All J-EUNETHYDIS abstracts will be presented as posters, if not selected for oral presentation.

EUNETHYDIS is keen to support Ph.D. students and clinical or post-doctoral research fellows. We offer 150 delegates attending the J-Eunethydis Conference, a reduced registration fee of £225.00 that will allow access to the main conference.

The 150 places at the J-EUNETHYDIS Conference will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
