Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the 7th International Conference on Behavioral Addictions (ICBA) is due to take place from 20-22 June, 2022, in Nottingham, United Kingdom. In 2011 we launched the Journal of Behavioral Addictions, and two years later we organized the 1st International Conference on Behavioral Addictions (ICBA) in Budapest, Hungary, in order to provide a venue for face-to-face encounters, as well as a forum for scientific information exchange. After the conferences in Budapest (2013, 2015), Geneva (2016), Haifa (2017), Cologne (2018), and Yokohama (2019), in 2020 we are already organizing the seventh meeting. The conference will appeal to research scientists, clinicians, social workers, health service managers and others. We look forward to welcoming everyone who is interested in behavioral addictions and allied disorders, whatever their perspective. Join us in Nottingham from June 20-22, 2022.

Yours sincerely,

Zsolt Demetrovics
Daria J. Kuss
Co-Chair, Local Organiser
Mark D. Griffiths
