The International Society for the Study of Emerging Drugs (ISSED) is currently soliciting abstracts for its upcoming VIII International Conference on Novel Psychoactive Substances.   

The goal of the conference is to promote scholarship, information sharing and Big Ideas on all aspects of the NPS phenomenon. The programme and ISSED have a strong multi-disciplinary philosophy and are looking for abstract proposals that range from NPS trends, social impacts, drug treatment challenges, innovative harm reduction strategies, scheduling and regulatory approaches, as well as pharmacological effects, drug testing innovations, drug nomenclature, and other technical issues.

The conference will be an online event, delivered simultaneously online via ZOOM, using the successful format of the 2020 conference, with poster and virtual platform presentations. In addition, we have built a virtual hub for the delegates to enjoy networking during the 3 day conference

Please review the conference website for additional information and contact us if you have any questions.
