Press Release

14 April 2006

Monte Carlo - The IAAF is pleased to announce it will be hosting an international anti-doping conference titled the “2006 IAAF World Symposium on Doping in Sport”.  Concentrating on the theme of “optimising effectiveness in the anti-doping fight”, the IAAF symposium will run from 30 September to 2 October 2006, and will gather together experts and stakeholders in the anti-doping field to address many of the challenges and difficulties faced at the current moment.

The symposium will focus on two key goals: firstly to discuss and evaluate the current challenges and strategies in the anti-doping fight, and secondly to create inputs for the 2007 WADA World Doping Conference in Sport.  Among the many topics discussed will be recurring areas of concern such as EPO and blood doping, as well as new and important anti-doping measures such as individual athlete profiling (blood & steroid),  and new strategies in the prosecution of doping violations.

We at the IAAF are constantly looking for ways to improve our anti-doping efforts and we must continue to work hard in this regard. The 2006 IAAF World Symposium on Doping in Sport provides an ideal opportunity to gather the worlds experts in this area, to share our experiences at the IAAF and also to learn from others so that we may improve the effectiveness of our anti-doping programme”, said IAAF President Lamine Diack

Further information on this event can be found on the IAAF website in the form of a symposium brochure, and the IAAF is now contacting relevant stakeholders to ensure their participation in this Symposium.  http://www.iaaf.org/antidoping
