The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has announced that the capital of Spain, Madrid, is going to be the host of the next International Anti-Doping Conference in 2007, scheduled to take place from November 15-17, 2006. "The Conference has reached the support of the Spanish government through the Sport Superior Council (CSD)," WADA announced. It will be the third edition of the conference which had previously been organised by the International Olympic Commission (IOC) in the Swiss city of Lausanne in 1999 as well as in Copenhagen in 2003. The first conference produced the so-called "Declaration of Lausanne", which gave rise to the creation of WADA, while the second conference elaborated the International Anti-Doping Code.
