The NCRG has made it a priority to disseminate research findings on gambling disorder and responsible gaming beyond academia. We are especially committed to ensuring that credible scientific research informs gaming regulations designed to reduce gambling-related harms. Toward this goal, the NCRG has teamed up with the International Association of Gaming Advisors (IAGA) to present NCRG @ IAGA, a one-day conference scheduled for June 2, 2015, the day before IAGA’s International Gaming Summit begins at the Fairmont Pacific Rim in Vancouver. IAGA is an international association of gaming attorneys, industry financial experts, casino executives, regulators, consultants and educators. We are very excited about this opportunity to showcase the latest research for the leaders responsible for developing and implementing regulations and responsible gaming programs.
NCRG @ IAGA will feature discussions of research on self-exclusion programs, pre-commitment strategies, responsible gaming in new jurisdictions and what we can learn from healthy, recreational gamblers. Leading scientists such as Drs. Robert Ladouceur and Jon E. Grant will report on their research and the involvement of gaming operators, regulators, manufacturers and others involved in gambling will ensure a lively exchange of ideas about these issues.
NCRG @ IAGA is offered free of charge but registration is required. For more details, go to http://www.theiaga.org/ncrg-iaga.
NCRG @ IAGA attendees who decide to stay for the International Gaming Summit, June 2-5, 2015, will need to register at https://iaga.memberclicks.net/attend-the-gaming-summit. IAGA is offering a 5 percent discount on all completed registrations through April 20, 2015.
Many thanks to Peter Cohen, The Agenda Group, Kirsten Clark, executive director of IAGA, and IAGA for making this event possible!
Hope you can join us in Vancouver!
