The Interdisciplinary Conference on Psychedelics Research 2016 is the third international scientific conference on research into psychedelics organised by the OPEN Foundation.
During this three-day event, international researchers from a wide range of academic disciplines will present their latest results and advances in scientific research on psychedelics. ICPR is a multidisciplinary, strictly scientific conference featuring the most current research on psychedelic substances.
Building on the success of previous editions, this interdisciplinary conference will gather and connect experts from various academic fields covering neurosciences, psychopharmacology, psychiatry, social sciences, anthropology, philosophy and many more. This event is of interest to scientists, scholars, psychologists, psychiatrists, students, and those with a general interest in psychedelic research.
