September 2018 – The Netherlands: Sixth International Conference on NPS to be held 8-9 April 2019

MAASTRICHT, The Netherlands – September 2018: We are pleased to announce the Sixth International Conference on NPS to be held from 8 to 9 April 2019 at Maastricht University, The Netherlands. The conference is jointly organised by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), University of Hertfordshire, University of Maastricht University of Maastricht and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

To date, the five International Conferences on NPS, held in Budapest (2012; 2015) Swansea (2013) and Rome (2014), and most recently, at the United Nations in Vienna, Austria, were extremely successful events to share knowledge and strengthen collaboration on NPS among multidisciplinary professionals at the international level.

The main objectives of the sixth event are to share evidence-based information on NPS and latest trends of use; improve the understanding of clinical treatment and management of NPS use; explore policy and legislative responses to NPS; develop innovative prevention measures for vulnerable individuals; identify public health implications of NPS and explore motivations and socio-cultural factors underlying NPS use. To attend this conference please register on the conference webpage. Abstract submission is open until Saturday, 1 December 2018.
