Collaborative Perspectives on Addiction Annual Meeting

The annual Collaborative Perspectives on Addiction (CPA) meeting was initiated in 2013 to provide a forum for the presentation of novel research findings and clinical practice approaches to the treatment of addiction. The CPA meeting focuses on fostering collaboration from addiction research-to-practice-to-policy. 

Reaching new frontiers in addiction science: bridging the gap to treatment

March 23 - 25, 2023

Albuquerque NM

CPA has always represented a tremendous opportunity to present exciting research, network with scholars with shared interests, and learn about the latest addiction psychology research. The CPA community has steadily grown over the past decade, and we invite you to celebrate 11 years of addiction science research with us. CPA2023 will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, during March 23rd – 25th, 2023.

We are excited to invite your proposals for symposium, paper, and poster presentations at the 11th Annual Collaborative Perspectives on Addiction Conference (CPA2023)! This year, our theme is reaching new frontiers in addiction science: bridging the gap to treatment. Our goal is to address the gap between a world filled with massive amounts of data and new ways of collecting data (wearable devices, passive data, mobile cognitive tasks) and treatment approaches. Please see the call for papers at this link.

Consistent with past conferences, CPA2023 will offer opportunities to give and attend symposium and poster presentations, and participate in network programming for professionals, postdoctoral scholars, graduate and post-baccalaureate trainees, and undergraduate students. We also introduce the Program Chairs’ Choice Paper Sessions, in which papers related to the CPA2023 theme will be selected and organized for presentation and lively discussion. We welcome addiction psychology research symposium and poster proposals submitted by scholars of diverse identities, particularly topics related to cultural diversity issues and work performed by individuals from underrepresented minority backgrounds. Presenters should be able to attend the conference in person.

All proposals must be submitted via a standard form on the SoAP Web portal by the deadline (December 1st 2022). You may present only one symposium session, one Program Chairs’ Choice paper, and one poster presentation as the first/sole author. Individual paper and symposium proposals will be given the option to be considered for a poster presentation should the paper or symposium proposals be declined.

Symposia: Submission includes a 250-word abstract, summarizing objectives of all talks in the symposium. Submission also should include a 225-word abstract for each individual 15-minute presentation. The individual abstract should summarize the significance of the research questions, study design and sample characteristics, analytic strategies, key findings, and conclusion. Continuing Education (CE) credits are a large part of CPA. This year we hope to stream line the process and are asking symposium chairs to submit CE credit application with their abstracts. Submit symposium abstracts here.

    Program Chairs’ Choice Papers: Submission (available at this link) includes a 225-word abstract summarizing empirical research, or methodological or theoretical advances related to one of the following topics:

    • Computational and data science approaches in addiction science research
    • Novel and underused data collection approaches and methods in addiction treatment
    • Utilization of technology (e.g., wearables, app based, treatment devices) in addiction treatment  services

    Posters: Submission includes a 225-word abstract summarizing the significance of the research questions, study design and sample characteristics, analytic strategies, key findings, and conclusion.  You may present only one poster presentation as the first/sole author.  If multiple poster proposals are received from the same first author, only the first submission will be reviewed. Submit poster abstracts here.

    Information on Travel and Registration Awards: To support early-career investigators and trainees, we are pleased to offer a limited number of registration waivers and travel awards to offset the cost of presenting at and attending CPA2023. Specific award amounts will be determined at a later date based on available funding.

    There are no separate applications for these awards. You must indicate your career status, and voluntary self-identified underrepresented minority status and financial needs. Awards will be selected based on masked peer-reviews of the proposal submissions. Final decisions will be made by the Program Co-Chairs. Individuals with conflicts of interest or those who are applicants themselves will not be involved with the award selections.

    This will become available soon, please check back for updated information.
