Salzburg, Austria

IYSF 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.

IYSF preliminary programme

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 in the broader area of particle and fibre toxicology. This forum will not only discuss state-of-the-art science to broaden the scientific knowledge of the participants but allow the young researchers to benefit as well from several specifically designed interactive sessions to advance their own career/ research. In particular, the forum aims to foster the spirit of teamwork among the participants, providing the opportunity to network globally and to establish own professional networks. Each participant will receive a certificate of attendance highlighting the contents of the forum. Furthermore, all young investigators will have the opportunity to win several prestigious awards (Best Poster Award / Best Talk Award / Best Team Award).

Abstract submission is open now.
Make sure to click the International Young Scientist Forum when submitting your abstract.

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.
