Overview

The International Program and Division of Epidemiology, Services and Prevention Research (DESPR) of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) will host the 7th Annual NIDA International SPR Poster Session at the SPR 22nd Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, May 27–30, 2014. The poster session will take place in conjunction with the SPR opening reception following the preconference workshops on May 27, 2014. Posters will highlight drug abuse prevention research, including research on drug-related HIV/AIDS prevention for non-drug using or drug-using populations. We seek variation in study designs and a range of data types are acceptable (e.g., program data, surveillance data, as well as findings from trials and other empirical studies). Abstracts should include completed analyses and “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 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 2014 NIDA International SPR Poster Session. The awards, which are sponsored by NIDA, provide partial support to cover costs associated with attending the 2014 NIDA International SPR Poster Session and the full SPR meeting.

To be eligible, applicants must:

  1. Use the SPR online registration system to submit a poster abstract that is accepted for presentation at the NIDA International SPR Poster Session.
  2. Register for and participate in the full SPR meeting.
  3. Be the first author of the submitted poster abstract.
  4. 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:

  1. Drug abuse prevention and/or drug-related HIV prevention researchers supported by NIDA.
  2. Alumni of a NIDA-supported research training or exchange program.
  3. 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, 2013, and June 30, 2014.

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

  • North America (non-U.S. citizens) $500USD
  • Outside of North America $1,000USD

Applicants who accept a travel award to participate in the 2014 NIDA International SPR Poster Session will not be eligible to receive a travel award for the 2014 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.

All poster abstracts must be submitted online at www.preventionresearch.org.
The SPR Call for Papers abstract submission deadline has been extended for FEDERAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES from Wednesday, October 30, 2013 to Wednesday, November 13, 2013. All NON-federal government employees are still expected to submit their abstracts by Wednesday, October 30, 2013.
