Call for Abstracts

Mobilising Partnerships and Community Action for a Society Free of Alcohol Harm.

UAPC20 welcomes submission of abstracts for presentations relevant to the conference topics and themes.

We strongly encourage abstracts from both researchers and practitioners. ‘Practitioners’ include any professional working in research translation, policy, advocacy and Treatment. The focus of the conference is alcohol policy; abstracts that describe findings from alcohol epidemiology are welcome provided they include discussion of clear implications for policy.

Priority will be given to presentations that offer critical or reflective comment rather than purely program or descriptive papers. Papers will be accepted and considered in two domains: Research: Clear design, presentation, analysis, outcomes Practice: Clear context, process, analysis, outcomes.

Presentation at UAPC2020 is not open to any person who has a conflict of interest due to financial relationships, direct or indirect, with the alcohol industry.

Abstract Topics

A diverse range of speakers will provide opportunities for discussion about their research and experience and how these can be applied to alcohol policy environments and reinvigorate efforts to reduce alcohol-related harm.

Alcohol Laws and Policies: Implementation, Protection, Community Mobilization and Advocacy.
