The Global Alcohol Policy Conference (GAPC), would like to announce that the 2021 conference will accommodate in-person and virtual participation, for both presenters and delegates
We welcome submission of abstracts for presentations relevant to the conference topics and themes. Abstracts must be submitted electronically via the conference website by 31 March 2021.
We strongly encourage abstracts from both researchers and practitioners. ‘Practitioners’ include any professional working in research translation, policy, advocacy and communications. The focus of the conference is alcohol policy; abstracts that describe findings from alcohol epidemiology are welcome provided they include discussion of clear implications for policy. Priority will be given to presentations that offer critical or reflective comment rather than purely program or descriptive papers. Length of abstracts is 250 words excluding abstract title and presenters details. One person can present several papers although limit to number of papers from one institution or organisation will be conisdered when abstract selections are made.
Papers will be accepted and considered in two domains:
Please structure the abstract with the following sections: Background, methods, results, conclusions
Please structure the abstract with the following sections: Context, methods, results, outcome
For all abstracts the following criteria applies:
- Presentations by Indigenous people are particularly welcome.
- Presentation at GAPC2020 is not open to any person who has a conflict of interest due to financial relationships, direct or indirect, with the alcohol industry.
