Do you have newly completed research that you’re ready to showcase? Share it with the SOT community by submitting an abstract for the SOT 63rd Annual Meeting and ToxExpo, taking place March 10–14, 2024, in Salt Lake City Utah. Your abstract could join more than 2,000 scientific presentations highlighting the latest findings, cutting-edge technology, and intriguing insights in the field of toxicology.
To assist applicants by ensuring that their abstract contains all the required content for acceptance, the SOT Scientific Program Committee has elected to create an abstract submission form that instructs applicants to break their abstract into the four main parts that the reviewers evaluate:
- Background and Purpose
The first few sentences of your abstract will go in the “Background and Purpose” box of the submission form and should describe why you embarked on this work and your overall purpose or objective.
The next few sentences of your abstract will go in the “Methods” box and will provide a description of how your research was done.
Arguably the most important portion of your abstract are the sentences conveying your results. This means data! If your study is not the kind to produce data, clearly summarize the results and findings. Do not include figures, tables, or chemical structures and avoid nonstandard acronyms.
The final sentences of your abstract should convey the impact or significance of your work to the field of toxicology.
For additional assistance in understanding how to construct a successful abstract, visit the “Abstract Submissions” web page on the 2024 Annual Meeting website, where you also can find information on common reasons abstracts are rejected.
The abstract submission deadline is Monday, November 13, at 11:59 PM (US EST, UTC -5), and the cost is $65 per abstract. Acceptance notices will be sent to presenting authors by early January 2024 so that authors can register for the meeting before the early-bird registration deadline. If your abstract is accepted, you are expected to register for and attend the meeting in Salt Lake City to present your research during your assigned Poster or Platform Session.
We look forward to receiving your abstracts and an exciting week of science in Salt Lake City in March!
