5 Question to Pieter Remmers about the 9th European Conference on Gamling Studies and Policy Issues, Loutraki (18-21 September)
Personally, this conference caught my eye. Not because it takes place in an unusually location far awar from the normal London or Barcelona conferences, but especially its unique content.

I can see that this conference deals with issues that are not addressed elsewhere, and I have had the opportunity to ask 5 questions to the organiser Mr Pieter Remmers.

Q: Pieter, can you summarise the objective of the conference in 1 sentence? 

The objective of the conference is enclosed in the title :From fantasies and feelings to Facts in the Future. So far policies in general were based on feelings and not on  knowledge , let be on scientific evidence based grounds.

Q: Are there any specific topics on the programme that apply specifically to Spain?

Spain , unfortunately has not a great impact in the programme and has to learn from other experiences.

  

Q: your conference has widely been recognized as tackling the more challenging issues like Responsible Gambling, Social Effect studies. How have the issues around Responsible Gaming evolved during the last 9 years in your opinion

The development of Responsible Gaming measures world wide  is definitely very important and we are convinced that the EASG conferences have contributed to that a lot. The conference is an excellent meeting point for industry ,regulators, academic researchers an treatment professionals.

More than 40 countries will be represented, and more than 260 participants will take part.


Q: How is online gambling dealt with within your programme? 

Online gambling is a must in the programme nowadays. In fact compared to a couple of years ago, more an more presentations focus on the things that are important for online. From regulations, to treatment and research to find out what it is all about.

Have a look at the programme , please visit www.easg.org

Pieter, thank you for your time
