The annual Scientific Conference of the Research Society on Alcoholism provides a meeting place for scientists and clinicians from across the country, and around the world, to interact. It allows a unique opportunity to meet people, doing work in alcohol research, on a personal level. The meeting also gives members and non-members the chance to present their latest findings in alcohol research through abstract and symposia submissions.
The format of the meeting consists of plenary presentations, symposia, roundtables and workshops. Lengthy abstract/poster sessions are provided for adequate viewing time. Additionally, RSA's Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Study Group (FASDSG) usually holds their meeting/luncheon on the day prior to RSA's official opening. An annual tradition of the meeting is to start with an Opening Reception/Social the night prior to the official opening and have the Banquet/Awards Presentations on the last night of the meeting.
The RSA invites you to exhibit at our meeting. Our registration will consist of 1500+ scientists working in the alcohol research field from the US and avariety of other countries. The fact that these RSA members and non-members are attending the meeting indicates that they are mostly active, funded scientists. Their research runs the gamut from animal and human models to community studies and tobetter understanding the positive and negative consequences of alcohol use.
The Research Society on Alcoholism© serves as a meeting ground for scientists in the broad areas of alcoholism and alcohol-related problems. The Society promotes research and the acquisition and dissemination of scientific knowledge.
