Invitation to Submit Late-Breaking Abstracts for SOT 2013 in San Antonio


By April Brewer posted 12-11-2012 15:26


Dear Colleagues,

More than 2,500 presentations are already scheduled for the Society’s 52nd Annual Meeting and ToxExpo in San Antonio, Texas. We now invite you to submit abstracts during the late-breaking submission phase. This final submission phase will open Wednesday, December 12, 2012, and close Sunday, January 20, 2013. All abstracts must be submitted online by 11:59 pm EST on the posted deadline. 

Please select the Late Breaking Submission option in the submission section of the website. (The “Abstract Submission” option applies to the October deadline and is now closed. If you do not see the Late Breaking option, please click on Modify Your Account and go to Step 4 to add the appropriate role to your account.) 

Important criteria for abstract submission during this time are that the research must be new and should describe high impact original research that could not be completed prior to the original deadline.

Additional criteria that qualify an abstract to be accepted during this final submission phase include:

  • All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Program Committee and held to the same standards used to evaluate abstracts submitted for the original deadline.
  • Your abstract should not be a revision of a previously-submitted one that was not accepted unless you received specific communication from the Scientific Program Committee suggesting that resubmission during the late abstract period may be appropriate.
  • Scientists who had to wait until after the original October deadline to submit due to funding issues are encouraged to submit an abstract for consideration.
  • Not more than one abstract will be accepted by the same presenting author.

All abstracts accepted during this final submission phase will be programmed for Thursday, March 14 from 8:30 am to 12:00 noon. These abstracts will not be printed in the Program, but will be accessible through the SOT mobile event app and online event website. A printed supplement of the accepted abstracts will be available to attendees in the registration area at the Annual Meeting.

We look forward to welcoming you to San Antonio, Texas, and hope that you will consider submitting your abstracts.
