We are pleased to announce that the 5th International Conference on Behavioral Addictions (ICBA) is due to take place from the 23rd-25th of April, 2018 in Cologne, Germany. The conference will be organized by Astrid Müller (Hannover Medical School, Germany), Matthias Brand (University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany), and the president of the newly founded International Society for the Study of Behavioral Addictions (ISSBA) Zsolt Demetrovics (Eötvös Loránd University, Hungary).
This conference in Cologne will provide a unique opportunity to share scientific knowledge on non-substance related addictions ranging from genetic and neurobiological research to psychological and clinical approaches in epidemiological, sociological and anthropological fields.
