Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the 4th International Conference on Behavioral Addictions (ICBA), is due to take place 20-22 February, 2017 in Haifa, Israel. 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. In 2017 we are already organizing the fourth 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 Haifa on February 20-22, 2017.

Yours sincerely,

Zsolt Demetrovics
Co-Chair
Aviv Weinstein
Co-Chair
