NACS conference 2023

The future of sexology

The NACS 2023 committee invites you to wonderful Oslo, Norway, September 28th to October 1st.

It is a pleasure to welcome you to our capitol and all that it has to offer. There are many ways of traveling to the city. Gardermoen airport is close by, and the public transport system with trains, buses and ferries makes it easy to get around. 

We are proud to announce this years theme: "The future of Sexology"

What is the future of our field/profession? What does society need from us? What do we need to learn from the past, and what has research shown us? Hopefully many of the diverse areas within our field will be discussed. We know so many of you work with incredibly important topics, and invite you to start preparing abstracts and poster submissions.

NACS 2023 collaborates with Oslo Metropolitan University (OsloMet), and the conference is organized in the university's premises in Pilestredet Park. (Tram: 11, 17, 18, 19 – Dalsbergstien, Frydenlund, Rosenborg)

The university is centrally located in Oslo, with a short distance to public transport such as buses and trams, and all of our NACS hotels are a maximum of 12 minutes' walk from the university.

Are you and your abstract ready?

The deadline for registering abstracts has passed, but you can still register posters! Are you ready to present your work? Approved abstracts will be notified after 17 April. If you are skeptical or a little nervous about presenting in English, we offer a short digital inspiration seminar in September. Sign up with Silje at the academic committee at


This conference would not be possible without our wonderful volunteers. Can we count on you to pitch in? Volunteers get a discounted price and the opportunity to become a part of our great team. This is a good way to get to know people, and to show your appreciation for our professional network and our efforts to continue our professional development.
