Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the 8th International Conference on Behavioral Addictions (ICBA) is due to take place from 23-25 August, 2023, in Incheon, South Korea. 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), and Nottingham (2022), in 2023 we are already organizing the eighth 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 Incheon from August 23-25, 2023.

Yours sincerely,

Zsolt Demetrovics
Co-Chair
