Invited Speakers

Tomas Paus

University of Montreal, and Scientist at the Research Centre of the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Sainte-Justine, Canada

Bio: Dr. Paus is Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience at the University of Montreal, and Scientist at the Research Centre of the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Sainte-Justine.
During the first 20 years of his scientific pursuits, he worked on functional and structural organization of the human brain using a variety of approaches including studies of patients with brain lesions, functional and structural neuroimaging, and brain stimulation.
In the last 15+ years, his work integrates epidemiology, neuroscience and genetics – through a new discipline of population neuroscience – in the pursuit of knowledge relevant for child and youth brain health. This research draws on data acquired in a number of cohorts based in North and South America and Europe.
The work published by Dr. Paus and his colleagues has been well received by peers, being cited in over 67,000 publications. In 2013, Springer published his book “Population Neuroscience”. Dr. Paus received the Royal Society Wolfson Merit Award, Gold Medal of the Masaryk University, and is an elected member of the International Neuropsychology Symposium. He serves as Associate Editor of the Human Brain Mapping and Social Neuroscience, and is a member of several Scientific Advisory Boards in Europe and North America

Title: Population Neuroscience of the Growing Brain

 Abstract: In my lecture, I will focus on developmental processes underlying the growth of the human cerebral cortex. I will begin by introducing the concept of population neuroscience as a cross-disciplinary endeavour aimed at identifying factors shaping the human from conception onwards. I will then touch briefly on our previous work on pregnancy and brain growth, followed by our genetic studies that used data obtained in large datasets to reveal molecular architecture underlying the tangential growth of cerebral cortex. Next, I will discuss our findings obtained with “virtual ontogeny” that support a neurodevelopmental model of vulnerability to mental illness whereby prenatal risk factors acting through cell-specific processes lead to deviations from typical brain development during pregnancy. I will conclude with the most recent work from my laboratory on the relationship between fetal growth and the tangential expansion of the human cerebral cortex in times of food scarcity and abundance.

Karin Landerl

University of Graz, Austria

Bio: Karin Landerl is Prof. of Developmental Psychology at the University of Graz in Austria. Her research focuses on the neurocognitive mechanisms of typical and atypical development of reading, spelling, and arithmetic. She has contributed studies on reading development and dyslexia in different orthographies (German, English, Dutch, Bosnian, Arabic) as well as cross-linguistic studies directly comparing different orthographies. She is also interested in deficits in basic numerical processing as a core mechanism of dyscalia and is investigating associations and dissociations of learning disorders. She is a member of the Academic Committee of the European Dyslexia Association.

Title: Comorbidity of Learning Disorders: Associations and Dissociations of Reading, Spelling and Arithmetic Development

Abstract: Neurodevelopmental disorders of reading, spelling, and arithmetic can occur in isolation (i.e. in the context of otherwise typical development), but prevalence studies clearly show that these problems frequently co-occur. Thus, comorbidity of neurodevelopmental disorders is the rule rather than the exception. As learning disorders are typically investigated in isolation, our understanding of the neurocognitive mechanisms underlying their comorbidity is still limited. I will discuss similarities and differences in developmental processes across learning domains. Empirical evidence on domain-specific and domain-general predictors of each skill and their covariance will be presented. Multiple deficit models need to account for associations as well as dissociations of neurodevelopmental disorders.

Yair Bar-Haim

Director, Adler Center for Development and Psychopathology Acting Director, Center for Traumatic Stress and Resilience, Tel Aviv University, Israel.

Bio: Yair Bar-Haim is Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Tel Aviv University, director of the Center for Development and Psychopathology, and acting director of the National Center for Traumatic Stress and Resilience in Israel. President of the Association for Cognitive Bias Modification (ACBM). Prof. Bar-Haim’s research focuses on emotional, cognitive, neural, and genetic mechanisms underlying anxiety and stress-related disorders. His primary effort is on translation of basic science into effective evidence-supported therapies and prevention programs. Prof. Bar-Haim’s intervention protocols for children and adults, developed in close collaboration with the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), the US Department of Defense (DoD), and the Israel Defense Force (IDF) are implemented in numerous clinical and research settings around the globe.

Title: From Cognitive Targets to Symptom Reduction: New Directions for Treatment Development

Abstract: Cognitive Bias Modification (CBM) is a novel class of interventions targeting aberrant cognitive processes considered key in the etiology and maintenance of various psychopathologies. In this presentation, the basic assumptions of CBM will be described and a framework for CBM treatment development will be laid out. An example of a novel CBM treatment for social anxiety disorder will be used to highlight how progress through the different stages of treatment development can be achieved.

Travel Information


Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean, after Sicily and Sardinia, with an area of 9.251 sq. kms (3.572 sq. miles).

It is situated at the north-eastern corner of the Mediterranean, at a distance of 300 km north of Egypt. The Greek island of Rhodes lies 360 km to the north-west.

Cyprus’ coastal line is indented and rocky in the north with long sandy beaches in the south. The north coastal plain, covered with olive and carob trees, is backed by the steep and narrow Pentadaktylos mountain range of limestone, rising to a height of 1.042 m. In the south, the extensive mountain massif of Troodos, covered with pine, dwarf oak, cypress and cedar, culminates in the peak of Mount Olympus, 1.953 m. above sea level. Between the Troodos range and the Pentadaktylos mountain range lies the fertile plain of Messaoria. Arable land constitutes 46.8 per cent of the total area of the island. There are no rivers, only torrents which flow after heavy rain.



The earliest presence of human beings in Cyprus dates back 10,500 years. Noteworthy from the prehistoric period are a burial dating back to 7,500 BC, which contained the remains of a cat, making it the earliest evidence of feline domestication in the world and the Neolithic settlement for Choirokoitia, which dates back to 6,800 BC and is a Unesco World Heritage site.

The introduction of copper made Cyprus one of the most important exporters of the metal in the Middle East and beyond and during this time we find Cyprus being mentioned in letters between its kings and the kings of Egypt, the Hittite kingdom and the kingdoms of the Levant. It is during the second millennium BC that contact with the Minoan civilization and then the Mycenaeans from Greece brought the first waves of Greek colonization to the island. By the end of the second millennium BC the Greek identity was firmly established on the island. This is also the time that the modern name, Cyprus (Κύπρος in Greek), appeared for the first time.

Other peoples from the Levant, like the Phoenicians, Assyrians, Egyptians, and Persians interacted with Cyprus, either by setting up trading posts or by bringing Cyprus under their direct or indirect control. Alexander the Great seized the island in 333 BC and subsequently it was passed on to Ptolemaic Egypt and then Rome. Christianity was preached in Cyprus by Apostle Paul in the first half of the first century AD and it is said that the Roman proconsul of Cyprus, Sergius Paulus, converted to Christianity, becoming the first Christian ruler. Christianity remains the predominant religion on the island.

The island then passed to the Eastern Roman Empire in 330 AD. The island was invaded by the Arabs in 649 AD and from 688 AD it was considered a condominium between the Byzantines and the Arabs. This lasted until 965 AD when the Arabs were defeated by the Byzantine Emperor Nicephorus II Fokas. In 1191 AD King Richard the Lionheart conquered Cyprus and sold it to the Knights Templars who, in turn, sold it to Guy de Lusignan, the former King of the Kingdom of Jerusalem. He was the first King of the Frankish dynasty which ruled Cyprus until 1489 when the widow of the last king, Catherine Cornaro, abdicated her throne in favor of the Republic of Venice. In 1570 the Ottoman Turks invaded Cyprus which fell after a year of fighting. The Ottoman occupation lasted until 1878 when Cyprus became a British Protectorate and, from 1925, a Crown Colony.

After an armed struggle by the Greek Cypriots in 1955-59, the island was granted independence in 1960. In 1974 Turkey invaded the north of the island in response to a coup which overthrew the elected president of the Republic of Cyprus and has been occupying 37% of the island since. This resulted in the mass displacement of 160,000 Greek Cypriots to the south and 40,000 Turkish Cypriots to the north. Today the island is a European Union Member State, but the northern part is not controlled by the internationally recognized government of the Republic of Cyprus.



The population of the Republic of Cyprus is 952.100 (2012) of whom 681.000 belong to the Greek Cypriot community, (71,5%), 90.100 (9,5%) to the Turkish Cypriot community (estimate) and 181.000 (19,0%) are foreign citizens residing in Cyprus. The language of the Greek Cypriot community is Greek and the community adheres predominantly to the Autocephalous Greek Orthodox Church of Cyprus. The language of the Turkish Cypriot community is Turkish and the members of the community are Sunni Muslims.


Cyprus has a Mediterranean climate: hot, dry summers from June to September and mild, wet winters from November to March, which are separated by short Autumn and Spring seasons. Sunshine is abundant during the whole year, particularly from April to September when the daily average exceeds eleven hours. Winds are on the whole light to moderate. Gales are very infrequent and heavy storms rare.

Snow hardly falls in the lowlands and on the northern range, but is a frequent feature, every winter on ground above 1.000 metres in the Troodos range. During the coldest months it lies in considerable depth for several weeks, attracting skiers.

Food and Drink

The food of Cyprus reflects the rich and turbulent history of the island and its indelible Greek culture. You will find tastes influenced by the Middle East, Asia Minor and the Venetians, all using fresh local ingredients, herbs and spices and olive oil. The Mediterranean diet, with its grains and pulses, sun-ripened fresh fruit and vegetables, high-protein fish, lean meat and poultry and wine, is a healthy option.

Cyprus is known for its Hallumi chese which is made from goat milk and unlike other cheeses it can be cooked in a variety of ways without melting.

Cyprus has a long tradition in winemaking that goes back over 4,000 years. In ancient times wine was a major source of wealth for the island. The island supplied the Pharaohs of Egypt and Cyprus wines were in great demand amongst the ancient Greeks and Romans.

Commandaria is acknowledged to be the oldest wine in the world and was probably the first to be given an ‘Appellation d’Origin’(label of geographical origin). Legend says that Commandaria was originally made for Richard the Lionheart and the Crusaders. The dessert wine, which has a taste like sweet sherry, has been made using the same method for hundreds of years. The grapes are picked late, dried in the sun to enhance their sugar content and then pressed. The run-off is collected and fermented in tanks or in huge earthen ware jars. The sweet wine of Cyprus became known throughout Europe under the name Commandaria depicting its geographical origin “Commandarie” which was the name given to the land owned by the Knights Templar and later the Knights of St. John.

Nicosia is the capital of Cyprus; a status it has enjoyed for 1000 years since the 10th century, though its beginnings date back 5000 years to the Bronze Age. It lies roughly in the centre of the island in the Mesaoria Plain, flanked by the beautiful northern range of Kyrenia Mountains with its distinctive ‘Pentadaktylos’ – the five finger mountain. There are various suggestions as to the origin of the name Nicosia – or ‘Lefkosia’ In Greek – but the most likely one is linked to the popular tree, the tall ‘Lefki ‘ which once adorned the city.

Based in Nicosia are the Government head offices, Diplomatic headquarters and the cultural centre of Cyprus. The capital presents two distinct faces: the old, original part of the city, surrounded by sturdy Venetian walls over 400 years old, and a busy modern metropolis which has a population of 200.000 together with the suburbs.

Within the large area, encircled by the strong bastion walls that served to protect the town for centuries, are many places of great historic interest.

The central Eleftheria Square links old Nicosia with the elegant modern city that has flourished outside the walls, where hotels, offices restaurants and gardens blend happily with the fine old houses and colonial buildings of this cosmopolitan city.

Nicosia is a sophisticated and cosmopolitan city, rich in history and culture that combines its historic past with the amenities of a modern city. Nicosia has established itself as the island’s financial capital and its main international business centre. The ‘new’ Nicosia developed outside the walls became a contemporary, business and cultural center. Just a few miles away are enchanting places of interest such as Byzantine churches and monasteries, archaeological sites and charming villages. The uniqueness of such a combination makes the capital of Cyprus a place worth knowing and certainly a place worth visiting!
