The Society for the Study of Gambling was formed in 1977 to
provide a forum for those concerned with research into gambling,
to promote its scientific study especially as far as the psychological,
legal, social and economic aspects are concerned, and to inform
and educate the public about these matters.
The Society holds two meetings a year which have, so far, always
taken place in London. Meetings are held under The
Chatham House Rule. These meetings cover a wide range of
topics reflecting current issues concerning legislation and the
Act, regulation, technology both on and off-line, research and
statistics, probity and social responsibility, and aspects of gambling
activitity as they relate to all sectors of the gambling field.
The Society meets twice a year. The provisional date for the next meeting is Tuesday 4th November 2008.
The current fee for membership of the Society is £25 per
annum for individual members, and £125 per annum for corporate
membership. Additionally an attendance fee is levied of £30 per meeting, or £15 for those who are full time students. The cost for non-members who have notified us in advance will be £35 per meeting.
The Society produces one to two
newsletters a year containing papers that have been presented at
Society meetings, and other relevant information. You can find further
information on the Newsletter page. You can
obtain copies of the current Society for the Study of Gambling Newsletter
