Welcome to EUROTOX Congress 2021!
+++ Due to necessary coordination in the review process, the dispatch of the notifications is still somewhat delayed. These are expected to be sent on Monday, 21 June +++
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I imagine that many of you have been wondering about the EUROTOX 2021 Congress in this time of COVID. Well, the good news is that we will host a EUROTOX 2021 Congress this year in September from 27th until 1st October. Due to the remaining uncertainty around travel and vaccination status we have decided the meeting will however be virtual. There will be a mixture of recorded and live sessions and all your favourite lectures such as the Bo Holmstedt Memorial Lecture and the SOT Merit award will take place with live Q & A sessions. The EUROTOX/SOT debate will be a fully live session and there will be a Continuing Education Programme. We will have an exhibition and we will increase the number of industry sponsored sessions slots available.
In view of our decision to change the format of the meeting the abstract deadline for the EUROTOX 2021 Congress has been moved to 30th April 2021. So, there is plenty of time to submit your abstract and register for the meeting. Registration fees will be at a reduced rate for 2021 due to the format of the meeting.
In this virtual form the Congress will be run by the Executive Committee rather than as a Congress hosted by a Local Organising Committee (LOC). This is disappointing for the LOC from Denmark, but I am pleased to inform you that there will still be an opportunity to visit the lovely city of Copenhagen in 2024. The Executive Committee is grateful to the Hellenic Society of Toxicology who kindly agreed to move the Athens Congress back one year to 2025.
It is a great pity that we cannot hold a face to face Congress this year but you will still find an exciting and scientifically challenging meeting at EUROTOX and I encourage you all to support us and join us in September.
I wish you all a safe and pleasant summer and I look forward to welcoming you to our Congress in September.
Prof. Heather M Wallace
President of EUROTOX
