 SUBMISSION 

The meeting will feature:

 

  • Multiple oral and poster presentation sessions
  • Regulatory-focused panel discussion
  • A practical risk assessment workshop
  • Continuing Education courses
  • Presenter and travel awards
  • Reception, mentoring, and other networking opportunities with regulatory, research, and industry toxicologists

The ASCCT meeting is shaped by attendees submitting proposals to share their science. New this year, all of the oral, flash poster, and PDF poster presentations are drawn from submissions. Session and CE proposal submissions are closed. We invite you to submit your abstracts for flash^ and regular poster presentations now.

Presentations touching on all aspects of in vitro and in silico toxicology, including research, validation, policy, education, and regulatory science, are welcome. You may submit an abstract to be considered for a flash poster or for a pdf poster only.

Submission Deadlines: 

  • June 30, 2024: Regular Abstracts for flash poster or PDF poster presentations
  • June 30, 2024: Full abstracts for all accepted oral and CE sessions
  • September 1, 2024: An opportunity for poster-only/"late breaking" PDF posters

^What is a flash poster presentation? A flash poster presentation includes a regular PDF poster, as well as a 3-minute "flash" presentation with 1-3 slides, presented with several others during the flash poster session. Held early in the meeting, it's a nice way to encourage people to come to your poster and chat with you to learn more about your work.
