Synopsis: Databases, software, machine learning, and online marketplaces are increasingly used by chemists and toxicologists to identify and/or design safer chemicals and materials.  This day-long symposium is intended to provide CSW and NCAC-SOT members with updates on advancements in each of these tools, identify what improvements are needed, and discuss strategies for increasing worldwide adoption of such tools.  Recognized experts from industry, NGOs, academia, and government will present their perspectives on this topic.

Agenda: The full schedule, presentation titles, and speakers are listed here.

Poster Competition for Students and Post-Docs:
Application Deadline — April 19, 2019

During this symposium, there will be a poster competition and we encourage you and your colleagues to enter. Eligible students or postdoctoral scholars must be enrolled full-time in a graduate program or be a full-time post-graduate scholar within the CSW or NCAC-SOT region. Posters do NOT need to pertain to research associated with the symposium topic. If you would like to participate please send your abstract to Jennifer Tanir at [email protected] by April 19. Please be sure to indicate if you are a graduate student or postdoctoral scholar and if your poster should be judged by a chemist or toxicologist.

Applicants will be judged on the clarity of the abstract, the quality of the study that was performed, and the quality of the presentation at the symposium on April 30. Winners will receive a cash award after the event.
