Dear members,

The 2017 FACTA conference will be held from 19-22nd 2017 November at the Sofitel in Collins Street in Melbourne.

As part of this meeting we will have Dr Simon Elliott from the UK as our plenary speaker. Dr Elliott is the author of over 40 scientific publications and articles and has presented at many international meetings and presented evidence for many years in both Civil and Criminal Court as an expert witness.

He has experience and expertise in “new psychoactive substances” and has advised the World Health Organisation and European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction for over 15 years. We are privileged to have Dr Elliott as our guest speaker for this meeting.

A detailed clinical and forensic toxicology preliminary program will follow and will be uploaded on this website soon.

We welcome all members to submit an oral or poster presentation for this meeting.

We hope to see as many FACTA members attend this meeting from Australia and New Zealand and help ensure it is a great success.
