ISBRA hosts an international Congress every two years. Its affiliated societies including: APSAAR, ESBRA, JMSAAS, LASBRA, and RSA also hold regular conferences. Conference frequency listed below.
The primary goal of this joint meeting of RSA and ISBRA (“Meeting”) is to provide a forum for alcohol researchers – from all disciplines – to present their latest findings and to learn about new research developments in an environment that will provide interaction at both the professional and personal level. The Meeting begins with an Opening Reception (meet and greet style) on Saturday evening and ends with the Closing Ceremony (sit-down dinner with presentations) on Wednesday evening. The Sunday through Wednesday program includes plenary lectures, symposia, workshops, roundtable discussions, Enoch Gordis Award paper sessions and poster sessions. The Program Committee is made up of RSA and ISBRA members who represent a wide range of scientific specialties. Their goal is to develop a well-balanced program that adequately reflects the broad range of interests of the RSA and/or ISBRA memberships and non-member alcohol researchers. It is important to note that topics covered and the balance achieved in the overall meeting program primarily rests upon proposals submitted.
We would like to remind you about the 2022 ISBRA/ESBRA Congress that will be held in Cracow, Poland, in September 17-20, 2022. We are delighted to invite you this congress, which will be an exciting hub of international science on alcohol and unique cultural experiences. The famous Polish Fall will be a beautiful background to our presentations and discussions. We are planning to post a call for symposia and abstracts in the Fall of 2021. Additional information will be announced over the coming months.
We are delighted to remind you all that Melbourne, Australia will host the 2024 World Congress. The event will be staged at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from September 23-26, 2024.
