Submission is now open for abstracts and continuing education (CE) course proposals for the 12th ASCCT Annual Meeting, which will be held October 23-25 in the Washington DC area.

This year for the first time,  ASCCT will present CE courses at the annual meeting. Up to four CE proposals will be chosen to be presented the morning of Wednesday, October 25. CE proposal guidelines:

  • Unlike regular oral sessions, CE sessions feature presentations addressing or providing guidance on relatively established science or practice, and are planned with specific takeaways or learning objectives in mind. 
  • All proposals should fit within the mission of the ASCCT to further the use of in vitro or computational toxicology methodologies, alone or in concert.
  • Topics that will promote discussion of scientific and regulatory policy elements and cross-sector collaboration are welcomed.
  • Sessions will be two hours long. We suggest 3-4 speakers plus time for Q&A.
  • Participatory elements are welcomed; there may be support from the conference organizers available for participatory elements.

Please submit your proposal through our submission system at  The submission deadline is June 2. ASCCT will endeavor to notify CE submitters of acceptance by June 15.

ASCCT is also accepting abstracts for the annual meeting. Submissions will be evaluated for three types of presentations: oral, poster, and flash poster. Abstracts should relate to the advancement of in vitro or computational toxicology methodologies, alone or in concert. Submission of proposals addressing scientific advancement, regulatory policy elements, cross-sector collaboration, optimization and validation, application, weight-of-evidence, and other relevant topics is encouraged. Some session topics for this meeting may include: 

  • Filling knowledge gaps in regulatory submissions
  • Integrating NAMs into decision-making
  • Endocrine system
  • Liver
  • Mixtures
  • Medical devices
  • NAMs as problem solvers
  • Ecotoxicity/ONE health

However, submissions on all topics are welcome. Submit your abstract at The submission deadline is July 14.
