The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is pleased to inform you that the eleventh edition of its Anti-Doping Organization (ADO) Symposium will be held for the first time over three days instead of two, from Tuesday 24 to Thursday 26 March 2015 at the Palais de Beaulieu in Lausanne, Switzerland.
This Symposium is a unique event offering International Federations, National and Regional Anti-Doping Organizations, Major Event Organizers, as well as other stakeholders integral to the fight against doping in sport the opportunity to gather, network and brainstorm every year about the present and future of the fight for the protection of clean athletes.
The 2015 Symposium will in particular include on Day 2 a full day of practical workshops and training relating to education, testing, intelligence & investigations, results management, therapeutic use exemptions, and other key areas of the fight against doping in sport.
In addition, for the first time, WADA accredited laboratories will partake in the Symposium, enabling interaction and discussions with ADOs on Day 3.
Day 1 will involve athletes in particular and will be open to the media.
Other new features, as well as specific details including a draft agenda and logistical information, will be announced in November 2014 at the time of registration opening.
In the meantime, please save these dates and feel free to send any question or input related to the Symposium to WADA’s European Regional Office Coordinator, Sibylle Villard, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
