2021 CPDD SCIENTIFIC MEETING SUBMISSION TYPES

Symposia

Symposia are two hours in length and may have no more than four speakers and a discussant. A co-chair is required. The chair will submit the overall session title and summary abstract (maximum 250 words). Speakers will submit their individual presentation title only. Each symposium will have approximately 25 minutes each for four presentations (20 minutes for the talk and 5 minutes for questions), and 20 minutes for the discussant. These guidelines are designed to ensure that speakers have the opportunity to present greater depth and breadth of their topic and to promote more discussion during the session. Please encourage your discussant to present a broad interpretation of the topic rather than focusing just on their own work. The discussant should tie together the presentations and encourage discussion from the audience.

Mini-Symposia

Mini-Symposia are one hour long and limited to three speakers, each with approximately 20 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). Speakers will submit their individual presentation title only. These guidelines are designed to ensure that speakers have the opportunity to 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.  A co-chair and discussant are optional. The chair will submit the overall session title and summary abstract (maximum 250 words). 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). 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.
