Interdisciplinary Conference on

Psychedelic Research

Interdisciplinary Conference on Psychedelic Research 2020

This is the fourth edition of the Interdisciplinary Conference on Psychedelic Research. ICPR 2020 takes place from Friday 24 to Sunday 26 April 2020 in the beautiful city of Haarlem, The Netherlands.


ICPR 2020 is an academic conference focused on high quality scientific and scholarly research into psychedelics. Many academic disciplines have important contributions to make within the field of psychedelic studies. ICPR aims to bridge and connect these disciplines, and to facilitate a dialogue between the diverse academic fields and researchers involved in the study of psychedelics.


What to expect?

Featured prominently at ICPR will be the latest findings from clinical research into psychedelics as treatments for mental and other disorders. ICPR also features cutting edge brain imaging research, and the latest findings from psychopharmacology and neurobiology studies. The conference will dedicate ample time for studies from the humanities: anthropological research, ethnographies, social sciences studies, historical research, and philosophical questions. Further, the conference will facilitate in-depth discussions about (psycho)therapeutic frameworks, reflections on therapeutic modalities, and mechanisms of change.


ICPR will host lectures, panel discussions, poster presentations, and practically oriented workshops for therapists, researchers and clinicians.


Focus Areas

Focus areas for ICPR include:

  • Clinical research and applications
  • Mental health and well-being
  • Neuroscience and consciousness research
  • Mainstreaming and medicalization
  • Ritual, setting and placebo
  • Psychedelics and ecology
  • Cultural and ethical aspects

Critical Perspectives

In addition to the presentation of novel research findings, ICPR stresses the importance of addressing biases and blind spots in psychedelics research, encouraging reflective and critical engagement. 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.

Diversity & Inclusiveness

ICPR also aims to be a podium for the wide variety of ideas, contexts, disciplines, perspectives, localities, and individuals involved in psychedelic research. We seek to support and amplify the voices of researchers whose social or economic circumstances put them at a significant disadvantage to attending this conference. To facilitate this, we will offer scholarships to researchers from countries who have limited means to join the conference but whose perspectives bring added value to ICPR.
