The European Society for Social Drug Research (ESSD) was founded in 1990 to promote social science approaches to drugs research, with special reference to the situation in Europe. The society holds an annual conference providing scope for collaboration and co-operation among researchers working in the drugs field. Participation at the annual conference is free of charge.
The 29th Annual Conference will be held 4-6 October 2018 in Budapest, Hungary
ESSD members and other researchers who wish to attend the 29th Annual Conference are invited to submit
abstracts of their conference papers no later than 15th May, 2018.
Presentations should preferably include a European dimension (such as reporting on research or issues from
more than one European country, comparisons between data from European studies), and/or theoretical
analysis that draws inferences from the local to the European/global. Presentations restricted to the description
of interventions or (local) policies will not be accepted. Qualitative studies are particularly welcome. Each
presentation lasts for 15 minutes (time for discussion not included). The conference language is English.
