The next conference!

Dear NACT Friends and Colleagues,


The 18th Nordic Experience Meeting (NACT 2024), organized by Nordic Association for Convulsive Therapy (NACT) will take place on 22-24 May 2024 in Riga, Latvia.

This time, we draw attention to the latest scientific research and modern clinical experiences and bring it all together under the heading “The Role of ECT in Modern Psychiatric Care”. Several key specialists from all over the world will contribute to the conference by presenting their research and sharing their clinical experience.

In addition to scientific lectures, NACT will carry on the tradition of integrating clinical, practical, and scientific knowledge together by panel discussions after each topic as well as by holding scientific dinners and other activities.

We encourage participants to bring their own poster presentations, both on scientific topics as well as introducing the practical aspects of their own ECT units. These posters will be visible throughout the conference and their presenters are available for discussions during the Poster Session. For more information on practical aspects of poster session, please contact NACT secretary, Margus Lõokene (

The scientific part and related activities take place in the heart of Riga, in Radisson Blu Latvija Hotel. After registration to Conference, you only need to find a suitable transport from the airport. After that, NACT will take the full care of you on site – accommodation, meals, activities etc are all included in the registration fee. In terms of accessibility, Riga and our conference hotel have excellent connections and location, and therefore easy to reach for everyone.

We are confident that NACT 2024 will be a place of learning and personal development, where we all can share the latest experiences, approaches, and research to continue the best traditions of ECT and other brain stimulation practices. Visit our website to stay updated!
