Please consider presenting your research at the 8th Annual Collaborative Perspectives on Addiction (CPA2020) conference, which will be held at the Kimpton Solamar Hotel in San Diego, CA from April 2-4, 2020. CPA2020 represents a tremendous opportunity to present your work, and/or learn about the latest in addiction psychology research!
Symposia proposals are due Sept 30, 2019
Poster submissions are due Nov 15, 2019
*Note, poster submissions for CPA2020 are limited to one abstract submission per first-author. Although attendees may be listed as co-authors on multiple abstracts, you may only submit one poster abstract as first author.
Visit the CPA2020 website ( to submit proposals.
Each submission will be reviewed and rated by a minimum of 2 PhD-level peer reviewers. The following three criteria will be scored: Overall Quality / Importance; Innovation / Originality; Approach / Methodology. As noted below, fit with conference theme is not a requirement of the peer review or acceptance process.
We are excited to offer an expanded three-day schedule at CPA2020. 
This extended schedule will include several additional concurrent symposium/panel sessions compared to previous conferences. This will allow the Program Committee to meet increased demand based on high proposal submission rates in recent years.
The theme for this year’s conference is Substance Use and Addictive Behaviors across the Lifespan. We are actively encouraging symposium and poster submissions that align with the conference theme, however, fit with the theme is not a requirement for peer review or acceptance of proposals.
