The first Global Forum on Nicotine, which is due to be held in Poland next month, will include four plenary sessions and three parallel sessions, according to a press note issued by the organizers yesterday.
The forum, at the Marriott Hotel, Warsaw, June 27–28, is being organized by KAC, which stages public health and addictions conferences and runs the Nicotine Science and Policy website www.nicotinepolicy.net.
The plenary sessions are:
1. A fresh look at alternatives to smoking: the case for reduced-risk nicotine products;

3. Engaging key stakeholders in the nicotine debate and new practices; and
4. Regulation of noncombustible nicotine products: national, regional and international issues.
The parallel sessions are:
1. Science, regulation and use of electronic cigarettes, which will be conducted in Polish;
2. Gaps in our knowledge of nicotine and its use—toward a new research agenda; and
3. Regulatory landscapes: how can regulation benefit consumers and help them shift from harmful to safer products?
