Call for abstracts
The conference welcomes submissions for papers and rapid communications, but also invite proposals for symposia, panel discussions and workshops. Abstracts of recently published papers are accepted. A Scientific Committee composed of experts/scientists from different addiction-related fields will grade abstracts on a scale from 1 to 5 in terms of priority. Each abstract will be rated twice. Please note that the Programme Committee may, in some circumstances, re-allocate symposia, papers and rapid communications to a different theme, and invite paper presenters to make a rapid communication rather than to present a paper.
