[Download PDF Version]

The International Program and the Division of Epidemiology, Services and Prevention Research of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) will host the 11th Annual NIDA International SPR Poster Session at the SPR 26th Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, May 29–June 1, 2018. The poster session will take place in conjunction with the SPR opening reception, following the preconference workshops on May 29, 2018. Posters should highlight drug and/or alcohol use prevention research, including research on drug/alcohol-related HIV/AIDS prevention. We seek variation in study designs, focus (e.g., formative work, outcome, implementation science) populations, and data types (e.g., quantitative, qualitative or mixed methods approaches, program data, surveillance data, observational research, clinical trial data). Abstracts should include completed analyses. “Findings to be presented” abstracts will not be considered. Eligible research must have been conducted in international settings by international researchers, domestic researchers, or binational research teams.

Poster abstract submissions for the NIDA International SPR Poster Session will undergo the same peer review process as other submissions for SPR. If you have questions about your eligibility to submit a poster abstract for the NIDA International SPR Poster Session, please contact Richard Jenkins, Ph.D., Prevention Research Branch, NIDA, at jenkinsri@mail.nih.gov, or Lisa Jordre at ljordre@iqsolutions.com

The foreign abstract author must be a citizen or permanent resident of a country other than the United States and both the S. primary author and the foreign author must intend to participate fully in the NIDA International SPR Poster Session and the full SPR meeting.
