Share Your Expertise with Annual Meeting Attendees: Volunteer to Chair an SOT Platform or Poster Session

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

We hope that you will submit an abstract of your most recent research results for the upcoming Annual Meeting in New Orleans. In addition to submitting an abstract, we’d like to invite you to consider volunteering to serve as a chairperson for the poster and platform sessions that will be programmed. 

Listed below are the categories in which authors can submit their abstracts. During the Scientific Program Committee’s review, these broad session topics are broken down into sub-topics related to these categories. As per SOT policy, there will be two chairpersons for each platform session, and each poster session can have either one or two chairpersons. It is required that at least one chairperson for platform sessions be an SOT member.   

If you are interested in volunteering to chair a session, please visit the 2016 SOT Annual Meeting website to review the Session Chairperson Guidelines. To volunteer to serve as a SOT session chairperson, please click here:  Volunteer form

If selected, you will be sent an invitation in the weeks prior to the Annual Meeting requesting your assistance. The deadline to submit an abstract is October 7, 2015, at 11:59 PM (Eastern Daylight Time). The cost to submit an abstract is $50.
