QSAR 2020 Abstracts

Please note the meeting has been postponed; organizers are exploring dates in spring 2021. Read a letter from the organizing committee with more information and please sign up to receive updates throughout the year.

View poster presentation guidelines.

There are a few poster presentation slots open, so we are opening a late-breaking poster session. Start your submission here. Submissions are due April 8th, 2020.


The QSAR2020 programme (talks and posters) is based on author contributions. Authors are encouraged to submit scientific abstracts in one or more of the following categories. 

  • Thresholds for Toxicological Concern
  • Cheminformatic approaches to evaluate ‘big data’
  • Development, evaluation and application of QSARs to fill data gaps
  • Non-targeted screening and toxicokinetics
  • Development and application of NAMs within AOPs and IATA
  • Emerging issues, complex substances, nano, UVCBs & green chemistry
  • Understanding and quantifying uncertainty in model development and the underlying data
  • Biological activity profiling using high throughput screening data and high content data

All abstracts will be reviewed for their acceptance. Only abstracts that are consistent with the remit of the meeting and are of suitable quality will be considered.

Abstract Requirements

Each abstract is limited to a maximum of 250 words excluding title, author names and affiliations. In order for an abstract to be as informative as possible, please include a brief statement of the purpose of the study, the method used, the major results observed and conclusions.

Abstract Submission Process

  • Authors should specify up to 2 category preferences upon submission. Please note the Programme Committee reserves the right to re-categorize any abstract.  
  • All oral and poster presenters are required to register and attend the meeting. 
  • Abstract selected for oral sessions should be presented by the first author. Transfers will be permitted if notified ahead of time.
  • Presenters (oral or poster) may not use their conference presentation to market products or services and should use generic names wherever possible.
  • All abstracts accepted for oral and poster presentations will be published in the conference abstract book that will be made available for download from the QSAR2020 website or at the meeting. An abstract will not be included in the conference abstract book if the presenting author is not registered for the meeting.

Conference Proceedings

We are pleased to announce that Computational Toxicology will publish rigorously peer reviewed, top quality proceedings for QSAR2020 with full scientific papers of oral and poster presentations presented during the 19th International Workshop on (Q)SAR in Environmental and Health Sciences. All presenters are invited to submit manuscripts.

Manuscript submission deadline is 20th June 2020, no exceptions. Submissions must be made via the website of the journal. Please read the instructions for authors carefully before preparing your manuscript.

It is planned to publish all accepted papers within 6 months after the end of the meeting as part of a special issue of Computational Toxicology.
