WCTOH15: Abstract submission opens for international tobacco control conference

Published on


Online submission of abstracts is now open for the 16th World Conference on Tobacco or Health to be held in Abu Dhabi, UAE from 17-21 March 2015. Organisers are particularly interested in receiving abstracts on the theme "Tobacco and Non-Communicable Diseases", as well as  the global campaign for tobacco control.

The WCTOH offers an Abstract Mentor Programme to encourage the participation of young and/or less experienced investigators from low-resource settings. The Mentorship Programme is designed for those who intend to submit an abstract for presentation and who lack access to opportunities for mentoring in research and writing. Using this programme, authors can ask for feedback from experienced researchers before proceeding with the online submission of their papers.

Before submitting an abstract, please read these guidelines carefully: technical and submission guidelines / sample abstract / Mentor Programme / List of topics/sub-topics.

Abstracts that are selected will be allocated to either an oral presentation session or a poster session. Authors will be notified of the acceptance of their abstracts in September 2014. Selected abstracts will be included in the CD of the conference Abstract Book.  

The deadline for submission is Friday, 11 July 2014. All abstracts must be received by 23:59 (Paris time). Please click here to log in to the online submission system. After logging in, click on "Conferences" to access the submission system.

Please note: Abstracts sent by e-mail will not be considered.

Updated information on the conference will be regularly posted on the website:
