Call for abstracts now open!The Scientific Advisory Committee of GAPC2017 invites abstract submissions from researchers and practitioners for a range of presentation types including oral presentations, workshops, table-tops and posters. See the call for abstracts here.

GAPC2017 maintains the tradition of focusing on advocacy, overcoming vested interests in alcohol policy development and the need for international collaboration to stop the harm caused by alcohol.

The conference will forge links between evidence and action, using rigorous alcohol policy research to inform effective responses at local, state, national and international levels. Each day will be distinct and dedicate time to learning from other sectors – with a diverse range of speakers and topics beyond alcohol, along with insights from other successful interventions, global alliances, and advocacy movements and how these can be applied to the alcohol policy environment.
