It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the EBPS Biennial Meeting 2017, which will be held in Heraklion, Crete, Greece from the 31st August to the 3rd of September 2017 at Aldemar Knossos Royal Family Resort.

The main goal of this international conference and the scientific program is to bring together people to discuss the most recent research and advancements in behavioral pharmacology.

The Scientific Program will include plenary lectures by Prof. Gaetano Di Chiara, Prof. Bita Moghaddam, Prof. Carmen Sandi and Dr Yavin Shaham.




Members and non-members of the society, in particular graduate students, are invited and encouraged to contribute to the scientific program by submitting abstracts for poster presentations. We look forward to receiving your contributions.

We hope to see you soon in Crete, an island full of vitality, warmth, hospitality, culture and, of course, an excellent infrastructure which will provide an unforgettable backdrop for the conference. We encourage you to take the time to explore its sights and wonders.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Greece.


On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee


Yours sincerely,

George Panagis
