AIHA Seeks AIHce 2008 Presentations
The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) is now accepting presentation proposals for the 2008 American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Exposition (AIHce), to be held May 31–June 5, 2008, in Minneapolis. Submissions must be made electronically at www.aiha.org/abstract.html by Oct. 2. There is no fee to submit a presentation proposal.
An AIHA news release states that AIHce 2008 is seeking potential presenters to kick off this year's theme of "Vision. Value. Impact." and provide fresh, dynamic solutions to today's challenges—new standards and regulations, technological innovations, international security issues, and expanding practice areas.
At AIHce 2008, participants will represent a wide variety of interests, including industrial hygiene, environmental health, safety, engineering, consulting, general business management, and more.
Presenters may choose from the following presentation formats: (1) podium abstracts, oral presentations limited to 20 minutes that may be accompanied by slides; (2) poster abstracts, visual displays on fiberboard (poster sessions include a two-hour period when the author is in attendance to answer questions); (3) environmental health and safety (EHS) crossover programs, 60-minute presentations sharing practical information on non-industrial hygiene topics such as safety and environmental issues; and (4) roundtables, sessions submitted in their entirety which either cover both sides of a controversial issue or provide extensive information on a single subject.
