The objectives of this event were to share the latest knowledge about doping in recreational sports and to discuss the diverse aspects of doping in society. The event was targeted to the scientific community doing research on doping issues as well as to experts in the health care and sports industries who meet users of doping in their work.

The programme included presentations from 15 keynote speakers from 8 different countries on, e.g., the following themes:

  • Anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) in recreational sports
  • Nutritional supplements, appearance and performance enhancing drugs
  • Prevention against doping in Europe
  • The latest research development on doping in recreational sports

The official conference hashtag is #APED2015.
