Lisbon Addictions 2019, the third European Conference on Addictive Behaviours and Dependencies, is a multidisciplinary conference that provides a forum for networking across the addictions.
Over 1 200 participants from 70 countries attended Lisbon Addictions 2017. The conference sold out several months before the event. See presentations and posters.
Following the renewed success of the conference initiative, the organisers have decided to launch Lisbon Addictions 2019 (#LxAddictions19), which will take place in the Lisbon Congress Centre from 23–25 October 2019.
Once again, the event will be jointly organised by the Portuguese General Directorate for Intervention on Addictive Behaviours and Dependencies (SICAD), the journal Addiction/Society for the Study of Addiction, the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) and the International Society of Addiction Journal Editors (ISAJE).
The overarching theme for 2019 is ‘The future of addictions: new frontiers for policy, practice and science’. The conference will therefore showcase cutting-edge research to help characterise, understand and respond to addiction and addictive behaviours.
