Global Forum on Nicotine 2015

gfn-2015 100x150

Following the success of the inaugural event last year, the second Global Forum on Nicotine will be held at the Marriott Hotel, in Warsaw, on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th June 2015.

Preparations are under way and the programme committee has begun its work to ensure that the salient issues facing consumers, academics, regulators and industry are included in the agenda for the conference.

The science of nicotine is rapidly developing, regulatory issues are high on the political agenda and consumers are becoming anxious about long-term availability of products. There is a nascent consensus amongst a body of scientists and public health about the relative safety of new nicotine and other non-combustible products, although there is still scepticism expressed by others and the debate continues.

With this in mind, it is imperative that scientists and those concerned with policy have an open forum where the latest evidence can be examined and options for effective policy discussed, to satisfy the requirements of safety and responsible use of new products.

The format will be largely similar to 2014, with a combination of plenary, parallel and satellite sessions, along with the second Mike Russell Memorial Oration, and poster presentations. There will be a pre-conference social event on Thursday 4th June. More information can be found on the programme page.

The programme committee will be charged with developing the outline for the conference and inviting a number of thought leaders and leading scientists to shape the debate, but we also want to make space for others to input into the conference and will have a number of sessions designed to enable this to happen. Please see the programme page for details about how you can become involved.
