Registration is open for three upcoming SOT-endorsed meetings.

ACTRA 13th Annual Scientific Meeting

The Australasian College of Toxicology and Risk Assessment (ACTRA) 13th Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) will be held August 26–27, 2021, in Sydney, Australia. The conference will focus on advances in assessment and understanding of petroleum toxicology and neurotoxicology and their application in risk assessment practice.

A one-day Continuing Education Course will precede the ASM on August 25. Both events also will be available to stream via the ACTRA online platform. For more information and to register, please visit the ASM website.

TERA Dose-Response Assessment Boot Camp Course

This is the accelerated, intensive, hands-on training in hazard characterization and dose-response assessment for which TERA is known worldwide. It will be held September 20–24, 2021, at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Poison Center and Office Building in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Please visit the TERA website for the course description, brochure, and registration form. Discounts are available for three or more registrations per organization.

Continuing Education Credits available:

  • Five Continuing Maintenance points available from the American Board of Industrial Hygienists (ABIH)
  • Four Continuing Education Units available from the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA)

FLUOROS Global 2021—International Perspectives on PFAS Science

A preeminent and international conference dedicated to sharing the latest science on PFAS, “silent” and dangerous chemicals often present in common household goods, industrial settings, and military installations, is open for registration. “FLUOROS Global 2021—International Perspectives on PFAS Science” will take place October 3–7, 2021, both in person at the WaterFire Fine Arts Center in Providence, Rhode Island, and online.

The symposium will consist of a series of regionally held half-day themed PFAS events that showcase state-of-the-art PFAS knowledge and demonstrate the global dimension of PFAS contamination as well as the ongoing and needed research to address the ubiquity of the problem. By holding a compact series of regional meetings around the globe, including in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia, FLUOROS Global 2021 also will demonstrate a less travel-intensive way of achieving global collaboration as well as lessons in global cooperation.
