An important aspect of the congresses of the INTERNATIONAL PSYCHOANALYTIC ASSOCIATION has always been that they provide an opportunity to meet colleagues from other psychoanalytic societies working in different parts of the world, and to have informal discussions with them about different problems arising in their work. To facilitate such meetings, the Subcommittee on Congress Design has recommended that on Monday and Wednesday evenings (July 27th and 29th) of the congress to be held in Copenhagen, an attempt be made to arrange after dinner, as an experiment, what it calls 'Technical At Homes'. One evening should center around people who have been following a particular line of research or thought in their work, and whom a certain number of members of the congress would like to meet in order to discuss it. On the other evening groups could be formed of members who are interested in certain topics, such as training problems, the application of psychoanalytic technique to the treatment of psychotics, etc. These 'Technical At Homes' could take place in the congress building and light refreshments made available.

In order to give members who will attend the congress the opportunity to think about these suggestions, the program committee has decided to publish this notice in the psychoanalytic journals and to circulate descriptions of proposed events together with their provisional program to all those attending the congress. They will also be asked to let the program committee know if there is any person they are particularly interested to meet. The congress organizers could then ask such people (if sufficient members wished to meet them) to be available on these evenings. The main organization, however, will have to take place at Copenhagen, and details will have to be announced on the first day of the congress.
