The SRNT-E board has decided to set up an online conference taking place on 17-18th Sept 2020. We remain committed to providing the opportunity to both senior and early-career researchers to share their research in the field of nicotine and tobacco. We welcome recent studies on COVID-19 and smoking/vaping. We have extended the deadline for abstracts until 31st July. Please continue using the current submission system to submit abstracts/symposia for the online conference.
In the coming weeks we will update this webpage to communicate more information on the online conference including details on the supporting platform. Fees have been reduced and we are pleased to make this conference free for early career researchers and those from low- and middle-income countries.
We are very grateful to Dr Sharon Cox for taking on the role of Chair of the Organising Committee for this online event, and are happy to welcome her into the SRNT-E team. Dr Cox is a psychologist with over fifteen years’ clinical and research experience working within substance use. Her work is focused on understanding the disparity between alcohol and tobacco treatment availability and engagement, especially between different communities and by socioeconomic status. Her current research is focused on smoking cessation amongst adults experiencing homelessness, the impact of novel contingency management methods on substance use treatment trajectories, and the development of an ontology for use within e-cigarette research (E-CigO).
This year's conference was supposed to take place in Lausanne and we are extremely grateful to the Lausanne team for all the preparations they have done for this year's conference. We are very pleased and thankful that the Lausanne team, led by Dr Carole Clair, has agreed to postpone the Lausanne conference to September 2021.
