Call for Abstracts – Lisbon Addictions 2024

Every second year, the Lisbon Addictions take place. From the outset, Lisbon Addictions has been about stimulating high-quality scientific debate and showcasing leading European research in areas such as illicit drugs, alcohol, tobacco, screen addiction, gambling, and other addictive behaviours. It is a multidisciplinary conference, providing a forum for networking across the addictions field.

Next year, Lisbon Addictions 2024 (#LxAddictions24) will take place at the Lisbon Congress Centre from 23-25 October 2024, under the overarching theme of ‘Empowering the workforce of the future’. The upcoming conference will present cutting-edge research to help characterise, understand and respond to addiction and addictive behaviours today. It will also provide opportunities for early-stage researchers to enhance their careers through dedicated showcase sessions, networking activities and mentoring.

The event is organised by: the Portuguese General Directorate for Intervention on Addictive Behaviours and Dependencies (SICAD); the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA); the journal Addiction/Society for the Study of Addiction (Addiction/SSA); and the International Society of Addiction Journal Editors (ISAJE).
