Abstract Submission

Poster Guidelines

The ACT Abstract Submission System is closed. All presenting authors must register for the Virtual Annual Meeting (full meeting registration is required; there are no exceptions) and display their poster virtually during the Annual Meeting.

The Poster Viewing is on Monday, November 15, from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm Eastern Standard Time (EST). There will be a virtual feature for you to upload a five-minute oral presentation of your poster presentation with a virtual function to network and answer questions directly with attendees.

If the presenter fails to display their poster, the abstract submission will not appear in International Journal of Toxicology, the scientific journal of ACT. Please keep in mind that presenting authors may present only one poster at the Annual Meeting, but there is no limit to the number of posters that someone may co-author. Priority of acceptance in 2021 will be given to original research. Previously published abstracts, virtually or otherwise, will not be published in International Journal of Toxicology. ACT does not accept encore poster abstracts (i.e., a poster presented at any previous meetings).

Poster Presentations

The Poster Viewing will feature posters on a variety of topics, including general toxicology, regulatory toxicology, safety evaluation nonpharmaceuticals, toxicology methods, and safety evaluation pharmaceuticals. The virtual feature offers engagement between authors, exhibitors, and attendees while showcasing some of the latest and most innovative work in the field. The ACT award winners’ posters will be featured—be sure to look for these merited posters in the virtual platform.

Posters should represent only scientific material and should not contain any marketing of a company, service, or product. The presenter may not engage in product detailing and may not direct participants to a particular exhibit, meeting, or other company-sponsored entity, website, activity, program, etc. Any and all handout material must be limited to a one-page photocopy of the poster or abstract. ACT reserves the right to remove any material deemed outside the guidelines and does not accept responsibility for the loss of this property.

Posters will be removed if a poster contains material violating the guidelines expressed.

Poster Presenters!

Instructions for ACT Poster Presentations are provided on the “Presenter Information” web page.

Awards: Travel Grants, Grants, and Fellowships

Award Poster Presenters

International and North American graduate students who are awarded a travel grant will be considered for the Furst Award. This award, established through a generous contribution from the late Dr. Arthur Furst, is given to the author of the Best Student Poster at the Annual Meeting. It consists of a $2,000 cash prize and a plaque. Graduate students applying for the Furst Award must present their poster to the Awards Committee during the Furst Award Poster Judging Session. The winner will be acknowledged at the Awards Ceremony. Postdocs, early career professionals, toxicologists, and fellowship awardees do not qualify for the Furst Award.
