BelTox is organising its annual scientific meeting on December 08, 2011.

During this meeting, an oral and poster competition will be organized for PhD students presenting their results in the diverse fields of toxicology and ecotoxicology in Belgium.

If you would like to compete you are invited to submit an abstract online on this website using THIS LINK, where you can find an example of an abstract and further instructions on the format. The organising committee for this year’s annual meeting will select the 6 most appealing abstracts for oral presentations. The other accepted abstracts will be presented as posters. The deadline for sending the abstracts is 31 October 2011. Three weeks in advance of the annual meeting you will be informed whether you are invited to give either a 10 min oral presentation or to present your work in the poster session. During the meeting, the oral presentations and the posters will be evaluated by the invited speakers and members of the Steering Committee of BelTox. The best and second best oral presentations as well as the best and second best posters will receive a prize. The prize is 200 Euro for the best and 100 Euro for the second best scientific communication.

The subject of the abstract does not necessarily need to relate to the Annual Meeting's theme but can relate to any aspect of toxicology or ecotoxicology.

The venue of the meeting is the Lamot auditorium, Van Beethovenstraat 8/10, 2800 Mechelen, Belgium 

This meeting will, no doubt, be a unique opportunity for young researchers to communicate their results to an audience of experienced scientists from both academic and professional sectors and to exchange experiences with colleagues. For the other participants it will be a good opportunity to meet with the leading scientists of tomorrow.

Please mark your agenda for this stimulating event.

The participation fee for the whole annual meeting is 30 Euro for PhD students (which includes BelTox membership for 2011/2012) and 10 Euro for MSc students. Registration fee includes coffee break and sandwich lunch.

We are looking forward to meeting you soon.
