No Rest for the Weary as AIHce Gears Up for 2009

The sessions are finished, the networking over, and the traveling at an end. Take a short respite, you've earned it. But don't take too long, because soon it will be time to head to Toronto for next year's event.

That's right, AIHce 2009 will be hosted next year in Toronto, "The City of Creativity." If you don't yet have you passport, start applying for one now.

Deadlines are fast approaching. Presenters can select from three presentation formats:

  • Podium Abstract, a 20 minute oral presentation with or without slides on scientific research or a case study.
  • Poster Abstract, a three-day-long visual display on fiberboard in which the author must be present for a scheduled two-hour Q&A session.
  • EHS Crossover Program, a 60-minute presentation by one or two speakers that provides practical information on non-industrial hygiene topics, such as safety and environment.
