CORESTA Congress 2022


After the success of the 2021 "virtual" Conferences, where more than 800 participants took part, CORESTA is pleased to announce the 2022 CORESTA Congress Online starting on Monday, 10 October 2022 until Friday, 28 October 2022.

The Congress will be composed of daily, 2-hour sessions or workshops (1 pm to 3 pm CET) focused on a specific topic area with pre-recorded 10 to 12 minutes oral presentations followed by a live Q&A with the presenters.

Making full use of the flexibility offered by the virtual environment, do not hesitate to take part and to contribute to the quality and diversity of the scientific programme by submitting one or several abstracts.

Scientists and students who do not have the opportunity to travel and present at international events are particularly encouraged to report on their research results.



The  AGRONOMY & LEAF INTEGRITY AND PHYTOPATHOLOGY & GENETICS STUDY GROUPS  wish to encourage the submission of papers including, but not limited to, the following subjects:

 Sustainability in tobacco leaf production, such as reforestation and biodiversity, curing fuel sustainability, water resources, Good Agricultural Practices (GAP), soil conservation, improving efficiencies, crop production practices, farmer and field technician education, social and economic issues.
 Low nicotine, such as variety development, genetics, agronomic practices, economics.
Leaf chemistry, such as management of TSNAs, heavy metals, crop protection agents residues, laboratory testing.
Crop and environmental protection, such as crop protection agents, integrated pest management, biocontrol, diagnostics, monitoring, organic production, emerging pest and disease issues.
Genetics and plant breeding, such as technology and tools, variety development, germplasm preservation.
Supply chain integrity, such as supply chain due diligence, human rights impact assessment, agricultural labour practices, traceability.

The  SMOKE SCIENCE AND PRODUCT TECHNOLOGY STUDY GROUPS  encourage the submission of abstracts presenting scientific research related to conventional tobacco products and potentially reduced harm next generation products such as e-cigarettes, heated tobacco products and novel oral products containing tobacco-derived nicotine.

Topics can include, but are not limited to:

Tobacco harm reduction topics    Role of nicotine in switching to less harmful products   Misconceptions on nicotine   E-vapour and heated tobacco products aerosol emissions  Risk assessment  21st century toxicology  Biomarkers of exposure and effect  Clinical studies  Consumer experience and patterns of use  Advances in analytical and biological methods and testing  Physical test methods for all products and materials  Tobacco product regulations  Very low nicotine  Modeling  Product design  Reference materials


Abstract submission CLOSED. Deadline was 26 May 2022.
