Thank you to all of those who supported the 13th International Review of Bipolar Disorders in Seville. The talks were as ever of an excellent quality and our special thanks go to the speakers who spend so much time researching and preparing their talks.
The EBF now has an extensive range of offers available to members and we encourage all individuals interested in Bipolar Disorders to join and participate in the task force activities to give clinicians a voice. Go to www.eubf.org for more information.
The next IRBD will take place in Riga, Latvia between the 26 - 28 May 2014.
The meeting is, as ever, constantly evolving. Next year the Winter Workshop on Psychosis will be absorbed into the IRBD making a new organization, and broadening the topics covered at the conference, also recognizing ever-changing diagnostic concepts.

The European Bipolar Forum is exactly that - an open forum for debate and discussion on all topics relating to Bipolarity and Bipolar Disorders. We welcome all individuals to join and comment, although the EBF is based in Europe it is FREE to join and as such is not limited to geographical divides. Please feel free to join in no matter where you are from.
The EBF offers an opportunity to access expert opinion; join in with peers with a common interest; and keep up to date on current thinking on treatments and management strategies. It also offers the opportunity to contribute to clinical research in simple, but effective ways. Visit the Membership page to join.
The International Review of Bipolar Disorders (www.irbd.org), provides a forum for European Psychiatrists to meet on an annual basis, and provides the perfect stepping stone upon which to base an organization which encourages an ongoing dialogue between like-minded individuals.
The European Bipolar Forum seeks to establish itself as such an organisation. It provides the basis for individuals or National organisations to form like-minded International groups, and to drive common objectives, research and projects.
We welcome your ideas to start new initiatives, and look forward to working with you in the coming years.
We are delighted to announce that abstracts from IRBD 2010, 2011 and Winter Workshop in Psychoses 2009, 2011 have now been published in International Clinical Psychopharmacology and are available for review.
