Late-Breaking Abstract Submission Deadline Approaching

2020 Annual Meeting Banner - Green.png

Dear Colleagues,

More than 2,000 presentations are already scheduled for the Society’s 59th Annual Meeting and ToxExpo in Anaheim, California. The final opportunity to submit science for the upcoming meeting is through a late-breaking abstract. The submission deadline is Tuesday, January 14, 2020, at 11:59 pm (ET). 

Please visit the “Abstracts” web page of the Annual Meeting website to submit a late-breaking abstract.

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 presented here:

  • 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 18 to submit because of funding issues are encouraged to submit an abstract for consideration.
  • No 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 19, from 8:30 am to 11:30 am. These abstracts will not be printed 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 Annual Meeting website before the Annual Meeting.

We look forward to receiving your late-breaking abstracts!
