Dear Colleagues, dear friends,
It is with distinct pleasure that we invite you to our


The PSS is essentially a working meeting. Experts in the field of  Deep Brain Stimulation in psychiatric indications will meet for two and a half days of intense and in depth discussion about this burgeoning field. We have invited internationally renowned faculty from the fields of Psychiatry, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Neurophysiology, Microsystem-engineering and more. 

After our first summit in 2022 there was a huge positive response and appreciation for the event. We therefore decided to repeat this meeting on a biannual basis. 

PSS2024 is intended for Psychiatrists, Neurologists, Neurosurgeons, Neuroscientists, DBS staff and graduate students. This is a HYBRID-meeting for working and discussion. Registration will be performed on a  first come first serve basis.

The meeting is endorsed by the ESSF and WSSFN.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to beautiful Freiburg in fall, either on site or online!
