Call for Posters
for Nano Risk Analysis II Workshop:

 

A Workshop to Explore How a Multiple Models Approach
Can Advance Risk Analysis of Nanoscale Materials

 

Washington, DC

September 15-16, 2014

 

You are invited to submit abstracts for posters to be presented at the Nano Risk Analysis II workshop in Washington D.C. on September 15th and 16th.  This poster session is an opportunity to share your research with experts from around the globe in nanomaterial risk analysis and regulation.

 

The Nano Risk Analysis II workshop seeks to elaborate shared strengths and gaps in support of a Weight of Evidence (WOE) approach relying on Alternative Testing Strategy (ATS) to inform context –specific decisions about risk from exposure to novel nanoscale materials.  The goal is to inform the development of guidance for ATS use in overall approaches to those decisions. As such, suitable topics for poster presentations include research on high-throughput techniques, in vitro cell based and cell free assays, WOE or strength-of-evidence approaches to assessing exposure and risk, decision-analytic approaches, regulatory approaches, and challenges to applying ATS for nanoscale materials. We are open to a range of topics related to Alternative Testing Strategies, so please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about your topic.

 

An author may co-author any number of submissions but may submit only one abstract as presenting author.

 

This poster session is proudly sponsored by the Society for Risk Analysis Emerging Nanoscale Materials Specialty Group (ENMSG).

 

Abstract submission deadline: September 1, 2014
Presenters must register for the workshop by September 1, 2014.

 

Instructions for Submitting Abstracts:

 

Please submit your abstract on the web HERE

Memberships

Please state whether you are a member of SRA and a member of an SRA specialty group

 

Acceptance of Abstracts:

 

You will receive an email from SRA-ENMSG acknowledging receipt of your abstract.  If you do not receive a receipt, this means your abstract was not received – please contact us at the email below if you have any trouble submitting your abstract.

 

Authors will be notified by the Program Committee of acceptance or rejection in September. The Program Committee expects that papers will have the approval of the author’s management and co-authors prior to abstract submission.  All persons attending the Nano Risk Analysis II workshop to present a poster are required to pay the appropriate registration fees as indicated on the registration form.  Registration details will be emailed to confirmed poster presenters at the time of acceptance. Presenters must register for the workshop by September 1, 2014.
