Special Session on the Bay-Delta at the 2018 SETAC Conference, Submit Your Abstract Now!

The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry North American (SETAC) 39 th Annual Meeting will be at the Sacramento Convention Center from November 4-8, 2018 and organizers are looking for abstract submissions.  

A note from the session chairs:  We invite abstract submissions in the session "Assessing Contaminant Effects in Ecosystems with Multiple Stressors with a Focus on the California Bay-Delta" that will be part of the 39th annual meeting of the SETAC North America will be held 4-8 November in Sacramento California.  We believe your research findings could make a great contribution to this session.  We are particularly interested in developing a session that highlights advances made in the California Bay-Delta region for half of the session, but will also have presentations on multiple (biota, chemical, and physical) stressors from other locales as in previous years sessions. Because there are a large number of abstract submissions, we are not able to guarantee an oral presentation, but will do our best to fit your presentation into the session. Please note that we are not able to waive registration fees or provide assistance for travel." Abstract deadline: June 6, 2018.
