Call for Papers | “Anti-Doping Research: What is left to do?”. International Network for Doping Research 2022 Conference | Aarhus University, August 18–19, 2022. Call ends April 30, 2022


The 2022 conference of the International Network for Doping Research (INDR) will take place on 18 and 19 August 2022 at Aarhus University. Denmark. The conference is planned as in-person conference only, but this is subject to change due to the ongoing pandemic.

The conference theme is “Anti-Doping Research: What Is Left Do?” In 2022 INDR celebrates its 20th anniversary. Founded in 2002 to put anti-doping research on the agendas of sport organizations and political bodies, many INDR scholars have contributed to the research-based debates on anti-doping. Interdisciplinary research is now an essential component of anti-doping policy-making. Therefore the INDR leadership encourages an open discussion on the relevance, aims, and objectives of anti-doping research in general and of the network in particular.

Two keynote speakers have confirmed their participation:

      • Hajo Seppelt – Journalist and Author
      • Lovely Dasgupta – West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences

Additionally, a Panel Discussion with senior and junior researchers on the overarching conference theme will be organized.

INDR will also host an Early Career Workshop on 17 August. The workshop aims to give early career researchers (M.A. students, Ph.D. candidates, Post-Docs within their first two years) the chance to exchange ideas and team up with more experienced scholars. Participants will have the opportunity to extend their knowledge of the INDR network and strengthen their conference skills through selected activities, such as a short presentation from each participant (“3-minute thesis”). Workshop participation is free.
