Society for the Study of Addiction

SSA PhD Conference 2018


The SSA's conference for PhD students is now in its tenth year. This event aims to bring together PhD students studying addiction-related topics so they can network, present their work in a low-key, supportive environment and share their ups and downs. It welcomes full and part-time students, studying in a range of disciplines including social sciences, laboratory sciences and health services research. The day includes presentations from students at various stages in the PhD process and some close to or who have recently submitted their thesis.

There will be a social event in the evening of the PhD Conference, and throughout the day there is plenty of opportunity to talk to other delegates.

The Conference will start at 11am and finish at 6pm. The later start in the morning should allow participants to travel on the day. We will contact registered participants with details of the programme as and when they are finalised. The programme will be available here, shortly.
