Lisbon Addictions Conference 2019

The third Lisbon Addictions European Conference on Addictive Behaviours and Dependencies will take place on 23 – 25 October 2019. This is a multidisciplinary conference that provides a forum for networking across the addictions.

Over 1,200 participants from 70 countries attended Lisbon Addictions 2017. The conference sold out several months before the event. See presentations and posters.

Building on the success of the first two events, the SSA along with the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), the International Society of Addiction Journal Editors (ISAJE) and others, are putting together the programme for the conference in 2019 (#LxAddictions19).

It will take place in the Lisbon Congress Centre from 23–25 October 2019, with the overarching theme, ‘The future of addictions: new frontiers for policy, practice and science’, and will showcase cutting-edge research to help characterise, understand and respond to addiction and addictive behaviours.

Booking is open via this page.
