Share Your Expertise: Volunteer to Chair a Platform or Poster Session at the 2022 Annual Meeting!

By Michael Aschner posted 10-07-2021 14:49


Each year, with assistance from several SOT groups, including the Specialty Sections and Special Interest Groups, which share in the responsibility of reviewing the Annual Meeting proposals, an impressive scientific program is developed that provides attendees with an opportunity to learn about emerging fields and gain access to cutting-edge research in toxicology.

We hope you will submit an abstract of your most recent research results for the upcoming 2022 SOT Annual Meeting in San Diego. In addition to submitting an abstract, the Scientific Program Committee (SPC) would like to invite you to consider volunteering to serve as a Chair for the Platform and Poster Sessions that will be programmed.

Poster Sessions will require two or three Chairs per session, with at least one Chair who is an SOT member. Author-attended times for posters will be in one of three 1.75-hour Poster Session time slots.

Platform Sessions will require two Chairs, with at least one Chair who is an SOT member.

If you are interested in volunteering to chair a session, please visit the 2022 SOT Annual Meeting website to review the Platform Session Chair guidelines and Poster Session Chair guidelines.

To volunteer to serve as an SOT Poster or Platform Session Chair, please complete the Volunteer Form, including the category or categories of interest. If selected, you will be sent an invitation in December requesting your assistance. Thank you for your participation as the SPC continues to plan for an exciting 2022 Annual Meeting!
