The 2021 ICUDDR Virtual Conference- Call for Proposals

The 2021 ICUDDR Virtual Conference will be held July 20 & 21, 2021.  At this time, we are seeking proposals for this online event.  Deadline is February 26, 2021. 

Call for Proposals
ICUDDR is soliciting proposals for presentations at our annual conference which will be held online.  We have two categories for which you can submit a proposal.  Please keep in mind our mission, goals, and theme when submitting your proposal. 

Mission: The International Consortium of Universities for Drug Demand Reduction (ICUDDR) supports the rapid improvement in competencies and skills among current and future generations of addiction professionals, to meet the increasing demand for prevention, treatment and public health services. Toward this end, the ICUDDR facilitates networking among universities to promote high-quality education and training in the field of addiction prevention, treatment and public health interventions. It also pursues related applied addictions research, outreach and advocacy.

Theme: “ICUDDR 2021: Sustaining and Adapting Addiction Science to Virtual Realities”.  During this global pandemic, providing education at the university level, conducting research, advocating, and enhancing partnerships has changed. We would like to hear how educational, regulatory, advocacy, relationship-building, networking, and research efforts have been adapted and modified during this global pandemic. Are these sustainable changes? What challenges and benefits have these changes brought? What do you see in the future for your programs, Universities, research? 

1. Panel proposal: three or four linked 10-15 minute plenary presentations on workforce development; excellence in higher education; combining research, education and practice; university community engagement; or other topics related to the ICUDDR mission. You may submit a full panel with three or more presenters, or a single presentation 10-15 minutes in length, that if accepted, will be joined with presentations on a similar topic.

2. Master Class or Workshop: 60-90 minute long break out session. These sessions are designed to be interactive, fun, and skill-based learning sessions for academics who conduct research or teach in the area of drug demand reduction.

Proposals are due February 26th. Please send proposals clearly marked as a plenary panel or master class/workshop and in the format of an outline and abstract no longer than a page each. Please attach CV's or resumes of all presenters and send your proposal to eylesc [at] icuddr [dot] org (subject: Call%20for%20proposals) (Cary Hopkins Eyles).
