Aim and scope
The purpose of the symposium is to provide a forum where researchers involved in studies on alcohol can exchange ideas about their ongoing research. The scope of the symposium includes studies of the determinants and consequences of drinking, drinking cultures and patterns as well as social and institutional responses to drinking related harms, prevention and care.
Empirical research, theoretical papers, and literature reviews are welcome. Social and epidemiological studies is to be interpreted broadly, as it includes research from a variety of disciplines, such as psychology, sociology, criminology, economics, history, and other sciences.
The symposium focuses on the discussion of papers that are pre-circulated electronically on a password-protected area on this website. Papers are presented in 10-minute segments, followed by comments from the discussants and general audience participation. Any person who submits a paper may be asked to be a discussant or chair of a session. More information on abstract and paper submission can be found on the abstract submission page.
The aim of the organisers is to deliver the best KBS conference and offer an inspiring forum for researchers to discuss current research.
