ICAA Jubilee Conference
Stockholm 2007 10-15 June 2007


The conference will be an ideal platform to critically review the progress made in different fields of addiction practice and research over the past century and to share expectations, recommendations and projections for coming decades . Don't miss this great opportunity for dialogue and exchange with practitioners, scientists, policy makers and politicians from a broad variety of professional backgrounds from around the world.


Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning will each see two consecutive plenary sessions , where researchers and practitioners will review the state of the art of different subjects, discuss their implementation and give an outlook on possible future directions. The early afternoon will offer a range of selected “contributed papers” that discuss specific issues related to the themes of the plenaries or present practical examples. During the rest of the afternoon several parallel session of the ICAA Sections will host other contributed papers.

Friday is devoted to study visits at prevention, research and treatment centres.

Plenary Sessions

The plenary sessions cover several important themes. The major goal off the plenary presentations is to give a review of the state of the art, but also to look forward at implications as well as future directions. We are very proud over our long list of excellent plenary speakers.
