Conference programme available!

The draft programme of the second European conference on addictive behaviours on 24-26 October in Lisbon is now available for download.

Parallel paper, structured and poster sessions have been designed for a multi-disciplinary audience. In order to guide participants through the multifaceted programme, five special thematic tracks will be proposed to participants as the programme is finalised. These will be:

A: Issues in focus
B: Measurement, epidemiology and reviews
C: Extending the evidence base
D: Lessons from practice
E: Substance, set, and setting

The tracking system will at a glance help participants pinpoint within the programme all sessions on any of the topics listed above. Prominent scientists and experts will also provide the audience with key interventions during plenary sessions. Programme >>

Various side events will take place in the margins of the conference. The draft programme of the Third international symposium on drugs and driving (23 October) is now available. The programme of the Third ‘Testing the Waters’ conference (2627 October) will be available shortly.
