In the spirit of reconciliation we acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional custodians of our land – Australia. APSAD acknowledges the Gadigal of the Eora Nation as the traditional custodians of this place we now call Sydney. We would like to pay our respects to our elders both past and present, and all Aboriginal peoples within our boundaries from whatever Aboriginal nation you may come from.

On behalf of the Australasian Professional Society on Alcohol and other Drugs, we are pleased to invite you to join us in Sydney for the 2016 APSAD Scientific Alcohol and Drug Conference.

APSAD Sydney 2016, to be held at Four Points by Sheraton, Darling Harbour in central Sydney from 30 October to 2 November 2016 will showcase high quality scientific research and lessons learnt from practitioners working in the field.

APSAD Sydney 2016 will focus on emerging issues, new treatment, prevention, and policy approaches to the drug and alcohol field and will feature an impressive selection of international and national keynote speakers as well as concurrent session presentations, poster presentations, symposia, and workshops.

On behalf of the APSAD Council, Local Organising Committee and the Scientific Program Committee we hope you are able to join us in Sydney, NSW for the 2016 APSAD Scientific Alcohol and Drug Conference.

We look forward to meeting you in Sydney this year.
