On Sunday 11 May 2014, a range of half- and full-day short courses are scheduled prior to the opening of the congress. Registration is open to all participants to the Annual Meeting.
The purpose of short courses at SETAC Annual Meetings is to provide educational opportunities to the membership and our guests. Teaching a short course also provides an excellent opportunity for getting to know (young) people working in the same field of interest and thus forming networks.
Short course proposals could be submitted until 30 November 2013. Feel free to contact SETAC if you have any questions on short courses.
