Open meeting: Demystifying modelling: what can modellers tell us about the potential population level health impact of safer nicotine products?
Syrena
 
This workshop introduces non-experts to computational modeling of tobacco product impacts on population health. It includes a non-technical introduction to modeling, and presentation of four diverse models of tobacco product impacts, from both academia and industry, highlighting the features of each model. The discussants bring a regulatory and tobacco science perspective on the current state of modeling. Time will be allocated for discussion and Q&A. For more details see here. The program includes:
  • A non-technical introduction to population modeling (Saul Shiffman)
  • Modeling of the population impact of e-cigarette user in youth and adults (David Mendez/Ken Warner)
  • The impact of snus with modified-risk claims on population health (Geoffrey Curtin/ Annette Bachand)
  • Modeling the potential impact of favorable e-cigarette policies (David Levy)
  • Modeling the impact smokeless of smokeless tobacco with modified-risk claims on population health (Ryan Black)
  • Discussants (Ray Niaura)
Organised by Saul Shiffman and Ray Niaura, USA

Invitation only: International Network of Nicotine Consumer Organisations General Assembly
Kometa
 
Formed in June 2016, INNCO is the collective voice for the most influential nicotine consumer organisations in twenty seven nicotine consumer organisations in twenty five countries across five continents who each recognise that there are safer ways to enjoy nicotine consumption than tobacco smoking. INNCO aims to represent the views of consumers in promoting safer use of nicotine and to advocate for effective and proportionate regulation of safer nicotine products and their use. This includes engagement with international health, regulatory and public health organisations concerned with nicotine consumption, to assure that consumers are effectively and equally represented as stakeholders.
Organised by INNCO
10:00 - 11:30
Open meeting: Integrating tobacco harm reduction into everyday healthcare practice
Wawel
 
The aim of the meeting is to network and share experiences and resources about tobacco harm reduction, safer nicotine products, smoking cessation, nursing and health care practice, healthcare education, and health, healthcare education and tobacco control policy. Nurses, health care workers and any interested GFN participants are warmly invited to attend.

Open meeting: International Symposium on Nicotine Technology (ISoNTech)
BallroomCDEF
 
The nicotine delivery landscape is rapidly changing. ISoNTech has been designed in response to this, to showcase the latest technological advances in alternative nicotine delivery systems, next generation devices, and the science behind them. Given some concerns expressed about the new products, it is also important that we showcase the measures employed to test and assure quality control in their manufacture and regulation.
Developers, manufactures and distributors are invited to demonstrate new products and discuss their design and development. The aim is to present a wide range of alternative delivery systems, including e-cigarettes, heat-not-burn and oral tobaccos, as well as ancillary technologies involved. ISoNTech 19 will take place on 13 June 2019, within a dedicated exhibition area, adjacent to GFN19
