QSAR 2021 Abstracts

Abstract submission is now open. Follow this link to get started. The submission deadline is January 30.


The QSAR2021 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
  • Informatics and data engineering challenges for computational toxicology
  • All aspects of Read-Across

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. 
  • 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 QSAR2021 website. An abstract will not be included in the conference abstract book if the presenting author is not registered for the meeting.

Poster Presentation Format

Poster presentations will be given using a quad chart format. Here is a template for you to download and use and here is an example of a finished quad-chart-style presentation. You can download full poster session guidelines here.

Conference Proceedings

We are pleased to announce that Computational Toxicology will publish rigorously peer reviewed, top quality proceedings for QSAR2021 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 2021, 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.
