GFN 2016

gfn generic 100Welcome 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.

Politicians, regulators, academics and researchers, public health professionals, consumers and advocates with an interest in nicotine and its uses will join us for two days packed with quality content.

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.

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 and vapemeet.

This year we are inviting submission of abstracts for both oral and poster presentations. This will enable the programme committee to broaden the range of contributors and ensure that the programme represents the most up to date thinking and science in relation to nicotine. More information on how to submit and abstract can be found here.
