Dear colleagues, students and people interested in this event:

With great joy and enthusiasm I share the details of the XIV TIAFT Latin-American Regional Meeting -Ist International Meeting on NPS & Drug design, to be held at the City of Buenos Aires in the last days of November, 2018.

During these four days, actualization courses will be given as well as plenary conferences, round tables, exhibition of works and social events, including a welcome reception, half day excursion, and final Gala dinner).

This meeting will be an opportunity to share experiences and propose strategies and changes for the future of the Forensic and Analytical Toxicology. We are, presently, living a special moment involving the advance of the New Psychoactive Drugs (NPS) and Design Drugs that are already included in control lists that are coming back and creating problematic scenarios with their consumption.

International guests, experts of every field, will give us their vision and advice on how to face this enormous problem that is taking place in our region.

I hope to share with you great moments in Buenos Aires, as we have been doing since our first meeting in La Plata, back in 2005.
