The Fourth International Conference on Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPS), « NPS and Behavioural Addiction », will be held on 30th – 31st May 2016 in Budapest, Hungary.
The main aim of the NPS conference series, now at the fourth edition, is to increase knowledge and understanding about the nature and the effects of NPS as well as promote innovative strategies to prevent the diffusion of NPS in society. The conference invites contributions in all areas of potential interest, as oral presentations or research posters.
The first three International Conferences on Novel Psychoactive Substances, respectively held in Budapest Swansea and Rome in 2012, 2013 and 2014, were extremely successful occasions to share knowledge and strengthen collaboration among multidisciplinary professionals. We are therefore delighted to announce the upcoming 4th International Conference on Novel Psychoactive Substances, that will take place in Budapest on May 30th-31th 2016.
The conference covers an array of topics, including: sharing accurate, evidence-based information on NPS trends; improving understanding of treatment and management approaches; and exploring socio-cultural factors underlying risky behaviours. International experts will examine the latest scientific research in this rapidly changing field.
It is being jointly organized by the University of Hertfordshire, the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), “Sapienza” University of Rome, and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the University of Chieti-Pescara.
