2022 CPDD SCIENTIFIC MEETING SUBMISSION TYPES

Symposia

• Symposia are one hour and thirty minutes in length.
• A chair and co-chair are required, one of whom should be a CPDD member.
• Symposia may have no more than four speakers and an optional moderator; the chair and co-chair can moderate the session.
• Symposia are scheduled during the regular daily sessions.
• The chair will submit the overall session title and summary abstract (maximum 250 words). The chair will submit four MOC questions and two learning objectives for each symposium submission. These MOC questions can be discussed among the chairs and presenters but are required to be submitted for each symposium submission.
• Speakers will submit their individual presentation title only.
• Each symposium will have fifteen minutes each for four presentations (No Q&A after each presenter concludes). These guidelines are designed to ensure that speakers can present greater depth and breadth of their topic and to promote more discussion during the session.
• Thirty minutes are designated for a moderated discussion period after all presenters have concluded.
• As talks progress, a smart-phone accessible app (linked to users with recognizable IDs) will be used to post questions and/or replies. These questions/replies will be viewable by all attendees in real time.
• Two moderators (session chairs/the optional moderator and one of the chairs) will monitor the ongoing exchange in the App to mine for distinct discussion topics and “hot” areas of exchange.
• The moderators will guide this discussion by focusing on distinct topics raised in the digital thread. Moderators will encourage participants to continue down new paths that appeared during the exchange, where applicable.

Mini-Symposia

• Mini symposia are forty-five minutes in length and limited to three speakers, each with approximately fifteen minutes to speak.
• No discussants are needed for mini symposia.
• A co-chair is required.
• The chair will submit the overall session title and summary abstract (maximum 250 words). The chair will submit three maintenance of certification (MOC) questions and two learning objectives for each symposium submission. The MOC questions can be discussed among the chairs and presenters but are required to be submitted for each symposium submission.
• Speakers will submit their individual presentation title only. These guidelines are designed to ensure that speakers can present greater depth and breadth of their topic and to promote more discussion during the session.

Workshops

• Workshops are one-two hours and are generally scheduled for evening slots (e.g., 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.).
• Workshops can have two-five speakers; one of the participants must be a CPDD Member.
• A co-chair and discussant are optional.
• The chair will submit the overall session title and summary abstract (maximum 250 words). The chair will submit four maintenance of certification (MOC) questions and two learning objectives for each workshop submission. The MOC questions can be discussed among the chairs and presenters but are required to be submitted for each workshop submission.
• Speakers will submit their individual presentation title only.
• Workshops can consist of data presentations and/or skills-building opportunities and are expected to be more interactive than formal symposia.

Forums

• Forums are one-hour sessions during a set time slot on the program. A second hour can be requested and may be granted at the discretion of the Program Committee. The committee strives to ensure the first hour of every forum occurs unopposed.
• Forum topics should be of broad general interest to meeting attendees (e.g., policy issues, funding of research).
• A co-chair and discussant are optional roles.
• The chair will submit the overall session title and summary abstract (maximum 250 words). The chair will submit three maintenance of certification (MOC) questions and two learning objectives for each symposium submission. The MOC questions can be discussed among the chairs and presenters but are required to be submitted for each symposium submission.
• Speakers will submit their individual presentation title only.

Abstracts

Oral/poster abstracts can be on any aspect of drug use disorder or addiction or on the actions of drugs of abuse. They should contribute to our knowledge of the agents involved in drug use disorder, including their molecular biology, chemistry, pharmacological action, biological disposition, abuse potential, safety or clinical usefulness. Contributions concerning research on neurobiology, epidemiology, prevention, public health aspects, or management and treatment of drug dependence are also encouraged.

Orals

An oral communication is a 15-minute talk in a topical session that is curated by the Program Committee. When submitting your abstract, you will be asked to indicate your willingness (yes or no) to have your accepted abstract be converted from a poster presentation to an oral communication. Selecting “yes” to this option does not guarantee your abstract will be selected for an oral communication, though selecting “no” will ensure that an accepted abstract will only be scheduled as a poster. The Program Committee asks that submitters select “yes” whenever possible to provide them with maximum flexibility in the diversity of topics that can be curated for the annual meeting.
