The organizing committee of the Joint World Congress are planning to inform everyone who submitted a paper about their status by the end of the day on the 18th of February. Good luck, and thanks to everyone who submitted papers.

Additionally, we are pleased to announce the first confirmed post-congress workshop, the Solution Focused Brief Therapy workshop. Booking and payment for post-congress workshops will be done as part of the registration process. On that topic, registration will be opening within the next 10-14 days, and we will announce that here, too. There are a multitude of complexities involved in closing the registration details, and the team is truly working hard to get all details closed.

Lots of work is being done behind the scenes to enable registration for the Inaugural Joint World Congress to open within the next 2-3 weeks. Our thanks go out, again, to the Congress organizers.

Review of papers is done. We had many more submissions than we anticipated, and our thanks go to the volunteers who reviewed the papers. Authors who submitted proposals will be informed of the status of their submissions by 18th February.
