2020 NIDA International Forum Canceled

NIDA and our international partners work diligently to promote adoption of evidence-based interventions for addiction. Now, it’s our turn to follow evidence-based recommendations to address the global COVID-19 pandemic.

We are sad to report that the 2020 NIDA International Forum will not be held. Hosting a meeting that would attract more than 200 scientists from more than 50 countries is not compatible with efforts to slow COVID-19 transmission.

For individuals whose abstracts were accepted for presentation at the 2020 NIDA International Forum, you will have the option of having your abstract included in the NIDA International Drug Abuse Research Abstract Database.

Look for an email message about the database. Watch this page for additional updates.

More About the NIDA International Forum

The NIDA International Forum fosters international cooperative research and the exchange of scientific information by drug abuse researchers. Held each June in conjunction with the annual scientific meeting of the College on Problems of Drug Dependence (CPDD), the Forum highlights the range and quality of drug abuse and addiction research conducted around the world.

The Forum features a research symposium, a poster session, and network-building activities highlighting NIDA-supported and other international research on drug abuse. This unique scientific meeting allows participants to network with talented colleagues, learn about drug abuse research and policy issues in other countries, and discuss NIDA-supported fellowships and other programs that can support international collaborations.
