The International Program and Division of Epidemiology, Services and Prevention Research (DESPR) of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) will host the 6th Annual NIDA International SPR Poster Session at the SPR 21st Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA, May 28–31, 2013. The poster session will take place in conjunction with the SPR opening reception following the preconference workshops on May 28, 2013. Posters will highlight drug abuse prevention research, including research on drug-related HIV/AIDS prevention for non-drug using or drug-using populations. Eligible research must have been conducted in international settings by international researchers, domestic researchers, or binational 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 Eve Reider, Ph.D., Prevention Research Branch, NIDA, at ereider@mail.nih.gov, or Dale Weiss, NIDA International Program, at dweiss@nida.nih.gov.

International Travel Awards for the NIDA International SPR Poster Session

A limited number of travel awards are available for international researchers whose abstracts have been accepted for presentation at the 2013 NIDA International SPR Poster Session. The awards, which are sponsored by NIDA, provide partial support to cover costs associated with attending the 2013 NIDA International SPR Poster Session and the full SPR meeting.

To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Use the SPR online registration system to submit a poster abstract that is accepted for presentation at the NIDA International SPR Poster Session.
  • Register for and participate in the full SPR meeting.
  • Be the first author of the submitted poster abstract.
  • Be a citizen or permanent resident of a country other than the United States.

Binational Research Teams: If the primary abstract author is a U.S. citizen (and thus ineligible for a travel award), the research team may nominate one of the foreign abstract authors who is part of the foreign investigative team for a travel award, as long as the foreign abstract author is a citizen or permanent resident of a country other than the United States and both the U.S. primary author and the foreign author intend to participate fully in the NIDA International SPR Poster Session and the full SPR meeting.

When travel award selections are made, priority will be given to applicants who are:

  • Drug abuse prevention and/or drug-related HIV prevention researchers supported by NIDA.
  • Alumni of a NIDA-supported research training or exchange program.
  • Citizens or permanent residents of low- and middle-income countries (as identified by the World Bank’s most current Classification of Economies).

Applicants may not have received travel support from the NIDA International Program between July 1, 2012, and June 30, 2013.

International travel award amounts are based on an applicant’s residency:

East Asia and Pacific                                $1,750USD

Europe and Central Asia                           $1,250USD

Latin America and the Caribbean              $1,250USD

Middle East and Africa                             $1,500USD

North America (non-U.S. citizens)            $500USD

South Asia                                                 $1,500USD

Applicants who accept a travel award to participate in the 2013 NIDA International SPR Poster Session will not be eligible to receive a travel award for the 2013 NIDA International Forum at the College on Problems of Drug Dependence (CPDD) Conference; however, applicants are encouraged to participate in both the NIDA International SPR Poster Session and the NIDA International Forum.
