SOT Returns to San Diego!

Ocean breezes, warm sunshine, and in-person scientific discussions—these are just a few of the attractions of the SOT 61st Annual Meeting and ToxExpo, taking place March 27–31, 2022. SOT cannot wait to host registrants, exhibitors, and guests at the San Diego Convention Center in California. The Society was last in San Diego in 2015, and the Convention Center is ideally located, sitting directly on the San Diego Bay, with restaurants, hotels, and amenities just steps away.

At this venue, SOT will present all the scientific content, breakthroughs, and debates that make our Annual Meeting a premier gathering for toxicologists. New this year, though, is an enhanced format that will provide the ability to experience the science in-person and off-site via the enhanced 2022 meeting experience.

What Does an “Enhanced SOT Meeting Experience” Mean?

All registrants will be able to access the scientific presentations regardless of their physical location. You can be sitting in the San Diego Convention Center or at a computer. You can attend one session in person and watch another later in your hotel! If your institution is restricting your travel, you can still participate in the science alongside your colleagues that are in San Diego. More information will be available later this year.

Why an Enhanced Meeting?

You asked, SOT delivers! You joined SOT for the virtual meetings in 2020 and 2021, and while the feedback from these experiences indicated that in-person meetings are preferred, having the ability to view content on demand was appreciated—so SOT is going to deliver both in 2022, an in-person meeting with on-demand session viewing, too. Providing access to meeting content outside the meeting venue is not a new concept and has been used successfully by other scientific organizations. SOT is actively exploring how to bring this experience to you in 2022.

The Bottom Line

SOT will be in San Diego in March 2022 unless transportation and businesses shut down because of public health concerns. Featured and Scientific Sessions will be held in San Diego AND will be available online. This year’s meeting also will feature the return of the in-person ToxExpo, receptions, mentoring events, and other activities that are a highlight for so many who attend each year. These enhancements will benefit those in San Diego March 27–31 and those attending remotely—and all registrants will benefit from the enhanced experience after the in-person component ends!
