II congress isatapI've the honour to announce the II Congress of ISATAP, to be held in the beautiful city of Las Palmas, Canary Islands (Spain) on next September, 11-13 - 2015. To give our meeting even more interest, it'll take place together and inseparately with the III Science and Meditation International Congress.

Here you can see the preliminary program, that still can be amplified with posters and some conferences. So I'm glad to call for papers now, to get an even richer definitive program.

You can find here the pdfinstructions for scientific communications.

Here is the pdfprogram of the Autogenics and Meditation Symposium inside the Congress.
