29th Annual Conference
4th-6th December 2019,
Hobart, Tasmania

‘Intersections: where new technologies inform traditional practices and boundaries are blurred between gambling, gaming, risk-taking and behavioural addictions’

Updated Notice and Call for Papers

The National Association for Gambling Studies (NAGS) welcomes submissions for the 29th Annual NAGS Conference to be held at the Grand Chancellor Hotel, Hobart on 4th-6th December.

Abstracts will be accepted until 30th September, 2019, although early submission is encouraged and submissions will be accepted on a first-in basis with early notifications sent to enable travel arrangements to be made.

The annual NAGS conferences attract national and international speakers from many different areas in the gambling field including, policy-makers, industry representatives, researchers, clinicians, counsellors and a wide range of people working with communities. The aim of the conference is to explain and explore research and developments in regulatory practices, government policies, treatment and service delivery, community development and industry practices in order to share knowledge and expertise.

In 2019, NAGS is interested to attract speakers and delegates from beyond the gambling field and discuss the intersection between gambling, gaming, esports, risk-taking, behavioural addictions, and the related implications for policy and practice.

We invite presenters to engage and stimulate discussion on a wide range of contemporary and emerging gambling related issues. To achieve these objectives, NAGS provides a variety of different presentation formats and forum types.

Prospective presenters can choose between:

● Individual paper presentations
● Symposiums/workshops
● Brief presentations
● Ideas forums
● Panels/Debates
● Posters

 We particularly encourage applications from persons both inside and outside the confines of academic research to create a broad address of contemporary gambling studies, and to generate discussion of issues affecting players, government, industry and the community.

To submit your paper, email conference@nags.org.au by the 30th of September.
