Today, in light of COVID-19 and the increasing travel restrictions, the ISSDP conference in Aguascalientes to be held in May 2020 will be postponed. Information on revised dates will be forthcoming. We truly apologize for the inconvenience.
On behalf of the International Society for the Study of Drug Policy (ISSDP), we would like to announce that our 14th Annual Conference, hosted by the Drug Policy Program of the Center for Research and Teaching in Economics (CIDE), will be held in Aguascalientes, Mexico (dates to be announced). This annual event is of interest to academics in the field of drug policy, as well as policymakers and decision-makers interested in drugs and drug policy.
The ISSDP is working in partnership with the IJDP, the official journal partner of the 14th annual conference. The 14th ISSDP Scientific Committee looks forward to receiving proposals in response to its call and will be more than happy to respond to inquiries from interested parties.

Timely submission of papers is critical to the success of the conference. The conference procedures and timetable are as follows:
By January 17th, 2020 at midnight (CST) authors should submit a 200- to 400-word proposal for their paper. The word count does not include the title or the topic(s) to be addressed.
All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee.
Early bird registration will open two months before the conference date and will remain open for a month. The initial date of regular registration will be announced as well.
All authors are encouraged to submit the complete full written paper with a 200-word abstract.
Presentation slots are around 15 minutes long. A written version of the paper will be provided to participants only via the 14th ISSDP Conference website before the conference.
During these days we will have three keynote speakers, different panels, poster presentations and workshops.
*Remember you may attend the ISSDP 2020 even if you are not presenting a paper.
