ISAM-CSAM 2020 is Now a Fully Virtual Conference

Unprecedented global access to industry-leading addiction medicine education

The ISAM-CSAM Annual Conference brings together more than 700 leaders, researchers, and clinicians in addiction medicine to share, collaborate, and connect. In addition to a conference program featuring global leaders and prominent researchers, both ISAM and CSAM offer pre-conference and post-conference educational opportunities for professionals looking to expand their skills and knowledge. This year marks the first year that the conference will be held exclusively online, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and British Columbia’s restrictions on gatherings of more than 50 people.

Call for Abstracts

Our virtual conference format will allow you to share your work from anywhere in the world! We encourage you to submit abstracts for new research findings, symposia, workshops, and professional development on all aspects of addiction, including our special stream on addiction and COVID-19. Students and young investigators are especially encouraged to submit. Deadline is June 15, 2020.

World-Class Education in Addiction Medicine, from Home!

ISAM-CSAM 2020 will be hosted entirely online, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and British Columbia’s restrictions on gatherings of more than 50 people. This change means participating in ISAM-CSAM 2020 has never been more accessible, flexible, or cost-effective! You can expect the same quality education as our in-person event thanks to our state-of-the art virtual conference platform.
