The 2nd European ChemSex Forum welcomes abstract submissions for poster presentations relating (but not limited) to the following:

  • Clinical and social research
  • Extent of engagement in chemsex among MSM
  • Migration of MSM and implications for drug use and chemsex
  • Service delivery in clinical and community settings
  • Training interventions for clinical or community staff
  • Responses from the community
  • Policy responses/policy development need
  • Other areas of interest

All submissions must relate to countries within the sphere of WHO Europe, which includes Central Asia and the Caucasus regions.

Questions about abstracts
Please read the FAQs (link) for the answers to many of your questions.

Abstracts must be submitted in English
Since abstracts are in English only, since ChemSex is a relatively new area of research, and since the Forum seeks a wide range of participants, the Forum will offer informal feedback (i.e. mentoring) prior to submission, as possible, if requested no later than 10 January 2018.

A rule of 2 applies. Every Forum participant may be the presenting author on 2 abstracts only. There are no restrictions on the number of abstracts that a participant can appear in as an author.

Abstracts will be reviewed by the Abstract Review Committee comprised of respected researchers, service providers and service users.

Successful abstracts should be prepared as posters (guidelines will be provided) for display at the Forum.

Presenters need not be in attendance.

Regretfully the Forum cannot guarantee travel or accommodation for accepted poster presenters.

Key dates:
Informal feedback requested by 10 January 2018
Abstract submission by 20 January 2018
Notification on abstract by 29 January 2018

Option 2: Suited for lessons learned through programme implementation, project or policy implementation or management. Abstracts submitted under this second option should contain concise statements of:
