  • Vienna, AUSTRIA – March 2017: We are pleased to announce the Fifth International Conference on NPS to be held from 23 to 24 October 2017 at the United Nations in Vienna, Austria. The conference is jointly organised by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), University of Hertfordshire and Sapienza University of Rome.

    The first four International Conferences on NPS, held in Budapest (2012; 2015) Swansea (2013) and Rome (2014), were extremely successful events to share knowledge and strengthen collaboration on NPS among multidisciplinary professionals at the international level.

    The main objectives of this fifth event are to share evidence-based information on NPS and latest trends of misuse; 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 submissions will open on Wednesday, 1st March 2017 and close on Sunday, 30th April 2017.
