Abstracts will soon be accepted for the 5th Annual NIDA International Poster Session at the Society for Prevention Research (SPR) 20th Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, May 29–June 1, 2012.

NIDA’s International Program and Division of Epidemiology, Services and Prevention Research will host the poster session to highlight international drug abuse-related prevention research, including HIV/AIDS prevention research in drug-using populations. Abstract submissions will undergo the same peer review process as other poster submissions for SPR.

A limited number of travel awards will be available to those whose abstracts are accepted through the peer review process. The travel award will provide partial support to cover costs associated with attendance at the 2012 SPR meeting. The awards are sponsored by NIDA and the National Cancer Institute.

The abstract submission site opens September 7, and the deadline is October 26, 2011. Look for more information at the SPR Web site.
