Slovak Toxicology Society

What is our main purpose?

On behalf of the Slovak Toxicology Society and the Local Organising Committee, we invite you to participate in the 53rd Congress of the European Societies of Toxicology to be held in Bratislava from the 10th to the 13th of September, 2017.

The Scientific Programme Committee is preparing an exciting programme with over 30 symposia and workshops that will highlight the novel findings in the field of toxicology. Four Poster Sessions and five Continuing Education Courses will offer a wide range of opportunities to enhance and enrich the professional experience.
In addition to the attractive scientific programme, the congress venue (new building of the Slovak National Theater connected to the Sheraton hotel) will offer an attractive space for exhibition and side meetings of EUROTOX members, affiliated societies, sub-committees and other scientific groups and thus will aim into strengthening professional relationships and networking activities.

Just take a few steps away from the congress venue to find yourself in the heart of downtown of Bratislava - a safe, flourishing and prosperous town located on the Danube River. The city is easily accessible via international airports located in Bratislava and Vienna. Did you know that these two cities are the closest capitals in the world, separated by only 66 kilometers? We welcome you to discover more about Bratislava and its friendly atmosphere, musical traditions, crowning-town history and excellent food and wines. Find for yourself that this town is a well-kept secret among people who are looking for something genuine and pleasant.

Let’s meet in Bratislava in 2017 - your presence will be a key part in the meeting’s success.
