Welcome to the website for the Global Forum on Nicotine 2016. This is the third conference in the series and will again be held at the Marriott Hotel, in Warsaw, on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th June 2016. For full details of speakers and the programme click here.
It is evident that the positions on nicotine and its uses are still very polarised. In this climate a transparent approach, which demands that evidence be presented and honestly evaluated and those involved be accountable for their conduct, is often difficult to achieve. GFN16 will use its position as the only place where science and policy meet to address this problem, encouraging all stakeholders to hold rigorous and honest debates on a wide range of topics, to both inform and influence policy and practice in the future.
This is a multi-stakeholder event and last year had participants from 44 countries. Participants include policy analysts, regulators and standards experts, academics and researchers, parliamentarians, public health professionals, consumer advocates, and makers and distributors of alternative nicotine products – all with an interest in nicotine and its uses.
The agenda for the conference will be crafted to address 3 key issues: Evidence, Accountability and Transparency. The programme will follow the pattern set by previous events. There will be a mixture of plenary, parallel, workshop and satellite sessions, an exhibition of scientific posters, as well as plenty of opportunities to network informally, including during the pre-conference social event.
