Tobacco and Vaping Control Forum


The 2020 Tobacco and Vaping Control Forum will be held 6-7 October 2020 in Ottawa, Ontario.

Scientific Program

A call for submissions (oral, poster, workshop and symposium) will be launched in April 2020.

The Scientific Program will be developed by the Forum Steering Committee based, in part, on the submissions received through the open call. Session types will include:

  • Plenary sessions composed of a keynote speaker or panel of distinguished speakers which are planned by the Steering Committee;

  • Workshops and symposia that provide delegates with concrete skills and knowledge on various topics chosen by the Steering Committee based on the open call for submissions and the results of the peer review process; and
  • Oral and poster presentations, selected based on the results of the open call and peer review process.

A room block has been reserved for Tobacco and Vaping Control Forum delegates at the Brookstreet Hotel. To make your hotel reservation, contact the hotel directly and refer to the Group Code. Rates are guaranteed until 10 September 2020.

Booking your hotel within our room blocks is an important way to support the Association as we can incur significant costs for rooms that remain unsold. Staying “within the block” is also more convenient and helps you stay connected with the informal activities and networking opportunities that occur at the hotels during the conference.
