ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

We are pleased to announce that the V International Conference on Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPS) will be held on 23-24 October 2017 at the United Nation Office in Vienna, Austria.

The first four International Conferences on Novel Psychoactive Substances, 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 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.
