Applicants will be informed by e-mail if their proposal has been accepted for inclusion in the conference programme. After this date, applicants will have two weeks to register for the conference with the early-bird fee. Abstracts will only be included in the conference programme after the registration process is complete.

Submissions that explore intersections between addiction and factors, such as gender, race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, and mental health are encouraged, as are those that examine the impact of addiction on under-served and under-represented populations and propose strategies to address health disparities. We particularly welcome submissions on these topics and from studies where impacted communities and people with lived experience have been active co-producers in the research process.

  • Oral presentations: 15-minute presentation, 5-minute Q&A
  • Short communications: 8-minute presentation, 2-minute Q&A
