International Young Scientist Forum 2019

The 1st International Young Scientist Forum will be organized as a satellite event of the International Particle Toxicology Conference (IPTC) and will take place in Salzburg, Austria on 9th and 10th September 2019.

The event is an open forum specifically dedicated for young investigators (i.e. students, PhD candidates and early stage post docs) working in all fields related to the broader area of particle and fibre toxicology. The Forum will offer everyone the opportunity to network globally, exchange scientific state-of-the art knowledge and learn from each other. Participants will not only get a deeper scientific knowledge and can build own international networks but will also experience the spirit of teamwork among the participants. The Forum will create a professional network of young researchers internationally.

Abstract submission is open now. Abstract submissions are welcome in all relevant fields connected broadly to the overarching topic of particle and fibre toxicology including material synthesis & characterization, exposure assessment, toxicology & ecotoxicology, modelling, risk assessment and risk management.

The Forum will consist of both oral and poster presentations.
