42nd Annual RSA Scientific Meeting

June 22-26, 2019
Minneapolis, Minnesota


Meeting Registration, Lodging and more to come in March

(approximately the 10th)!!!

The primary goal of the Annual RSA Scientific Meeting (“Meeting”) is to provide a forum for alcohol researchers – from all disciplines – to present their latest findings and to learn about new research developments in an environment that will provide interaction at both the professional and personal level.

The Meeting begins with an Opening Reception (meet and greet style) on Saturday evening and ends with the Closing Ceremony (sit-down dinner with presentations) on Wednesday evening. The Sunday through Wednesday program includes plenary lectures, symposia, workshops, roundtable discussions, Enoch Gordis Award paper sessions and poster sessions.

The Program Committee is made up of RSA members who represent a wide range of scientific specialties.  Their goal is to develop a well-balanced program that adequately reflects the broad range of interests of the RSA membership and non-member alcohol researchers.  It is important to note that topics covered and the balance achieved in the overall meeting program primarily rests upon proposals submitted.
