Late-Breaking Abstract Submission Site Closing January 14


Dear Colleagues,

More than 2,100 presentations are already scheduled for the Society’s 58th Annual Meeting and ToxExpo in Baltimore, Maryland. This is a reminder to submit abstracts for the late-breaking submission phase. All abstracts must be submitted online by 11:59 pm (EST) on January 14.

Please visit the Abstracts section of the SOT website to submit.

An important criterion for abstract submission during this time is that the research must be new and of sufficient scientific importance to merit special consideration after the standard abstract deadline. Abstracts should describe high-impact, original research that could not be completed before the original deadline.

Additional considerations for qualification for acceptance during this final submission phase are as follows:

  • 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 deadline of October 19 to submit because of funding issues are encouraged to submit an abstract for consideration.
  • No more than one abstract by the same presenting author will be accepted.

All abstracts accepted during this final submission phase will be programmed for Thursday, March 14, from 8:30 am to 11:30 am. These abstracts will not be included in the Program, but they will be accessible through the SOT Event App. A PDF supplement of the accepted late-breaking abstracts will be available to download via the SOT Annual Meeting website.

We look forward to welcoming you to Baltimore, and we hope that you will consider submitting your abstracts.
