Call for Symposium Proposals

The local organizing committee is pleased to launch the first call for symposium proposals for the 23rd International Council on Alcohol, Drugs and Traffic Safety (ICADTS) Conference – T2022.

The symposia provide the opportunity to examine specific research issues, societal needs and concerns, and other related topics from a variety of perspectives. The total time of 1.5 hours can be divided between two established investigators in the field (each allocated 20 minutes) and two early-career researchers (each allocated 15 minutes). Early-career researchers should be PhD students or postdocs or hold a non-professorial position at the faculty level. The symposium needs a chair and co-chair. The chair should set the scene for the symposium by briefly explaining the background to the topic before presenting his/her data. There should be 20 minutes for Q & A in the form of a panel discussion (all 4 speakers) at the end of the presentations. Organizers and speakers will be expected to register for the Conference.

The proposal should include the following:

  • Title of symposium
  • Brief summary of the topic and what the speakers are expected to address (max 400 words)
  • Suggested speakers (incl. name, affiliation and contact information). Speakers should already have agreed to participate.
  • Proposed Chair and co-chair (incl. name, affiliation and contact information)

Please submit your proposal by April 2, 2021 by clicking on the button below
