AIHA Seeks AIHce 2009 Presentations

The American Industrial Hygiene Association is now accepting presentation proposals for the 2009 American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Exposition (AIHce), to be held May 30-June 4, 2009, in Toronto, Canada. AIHce, cosponsored by AIHA and the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH®), is the premier conference for occupational and environmental health and safety (OEHS) professionals.

AIHce 2009 is seeking potential presenters to kick off this year's theme of "Discoveries Beyond Borders" and provide fresh, dynamic solutions to today's challenges--new standards and regulations, technological innovations, international security issues, and expanding practice areas. At AIHce 2009, participants will represent a wide variety of interests, including industrial hygiene, environmental health, safety, engineering, consulting, general business management, and much 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 nonindustrial hygiene topics such as safety and environmental issues
  4. roundtables - sessions submitted in their entirety that either cover both sides of a controversial issue or provide extensive information on a single subject

There is no fee to submit a presentation proposal. Submissions must be made electronically at www.aiha.org/abstract.html by Oct. 6, 2008.
