ICPR is Europe’s leading academic conference dedicated to advancing psychedelic research and therapies. ICPR 2022, the fifth edition since 2010, will take place at the prestigious Philharmonie in Haarlem (the Netherlands) from 22 to 24 September, 2022. ICPR provides a platform for the dissemination of high-quality scientific and scholarly research, and aims to facilitate a dialogue between the diverse academic fields involved in psychedelic research.
Are you interested in becoming a speaker? Our submission process is open to all categories, such as researchers, academics, clinicians, participants, policymakers, entrepreneurs, etc.
Psychedelic research does not take place in a vacuum. ICPR strives to create awareness around potential biases and blind spots in psychedelic research, encouraging reflective and critical engagement. We encourage discussions and critical thinking related to real-world issues, such as ethics, current developments in policy and politics, the psychedelic industry boom, and how these relate to broader questions around inclusivity, accessibility, and sustainability. We invite our speakers to contribute to a constructive discourse that considers ethical standards and research practices in light of their broader implications for society.
ICPR strives to commit more to diversity by inviting applicants from diverse contexts, disciplines, and cultural backgrounds to add their much needed perspectives on developments around the field of psychedelic studies, and actively join us in this coming conference. In the same spirit, we hope to offer financial aid to researchers whose social or economic circumstances preclude them from attending the conference. We will announce scholarship opportunities in due time.
We particularly welcome submissions that address the following themes:
ICPR welcomes submissions from researchers from all scientific and scholarly disciplines; we especially welcome the submission of presentations proposing new ideas, hypotheses, or theories, and critical reflections, novel perspectives, or collaborations between diverse fields.
Researchers currently writing up their results for publication are also allowed to submit, provided that final results will be available before ICPR. Candidates can submit their abstracts to multiple categories and applicants who are not selected for an oral presentation may be offered the chance to present a poster upon discretion of the scientific committee.
All abstracts will be peer-reviewed by the Scientific Advisory Board – the final selection will be communicated to all applicants by 30 April 2022 at the latest.
