We encourage the submission of abstracts describing research in nicotine and tobacco. Abstracts may focus on tobacco use in all forms, including smokeless tobacco and electronic nicotine delivery systems (e-cigarettes), as well as prevention and cessation efforts, tobacco control policy, and product regulation, among other topics.
