Schedule and Publications


Watch Featured and Scientific Sessions On Demand

Registrants of the 2023 meeting can watch recordings of the Featured and Scientific Sessions through the SOT Online Planner and SOT Event App.

The ability to watch on-demand recordings of the 2023 SOT Featured and Scientific Sessions through the SOT Online Planner and SOT Event App will be supported through June 2023. After June 2023, the recordings may still be accessible through the SOT Event App, but functionality is not guaranteed.

To view the recordings on either platform, navigate to a session description page, log in, and select the “View Recording” button. You also can use the filter options on both platforms to view the list of the available on-demand recordings. For more detailed instructions, watch the tutorial for accessing the recordings when using the SOT Event App or the tutorial for using the SOT Online Planner.

How to View On-Demand Recordings

This video demonstrates the various ways to find and view the on-demand recordings when using the SOT Event App.

The 2023 Meeting Is Only In Person

The 2023 SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo is taking place exclusively on-site in Nashville, Tennessee.

There will be no live online or virtual element of the meeting. As an added benefit, registrants will be able to access recordings of all Featured and Scientific Sessions through the SOT Online Planner and the SOT Event App within 24 hours of a session’s conclusion, but these sessions will NOT be livestreamed. Poster Sessions will not be recorded, but authors can make their posters available electronically for viewing on the SOT Online Planner and the SOT Event App. Exhibitor-Hosted Sessions also will not be recorded and can only be attended in person.

As an add-on activity, recordings of the Continuing Education courses will only be available to course registrants or those who enroll in CEd-Tox, the Society’s Continuing Education online courses program, after the meeting’s conclusion.

SOT Online Planner and Event App

The Online Planner and SOT Event App are your most up-to-date resources for the SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo since they are continually updated as information is finalized and changes.

A close up of two people holding phones. One person has the phone angled toward them and is looking at the 2023 SOT Event App home screen. The second person has their phone screen turned toward the first person, with the 2023 SOT Annual Meeting logo and artwork displaying on the screen.

21st Century Toxicology: Sneak Preview of Ongoing Relevant Activities

This year, the “21st Century Toxicology” series celebrates its 15th anniversary. This annual series, launched by the Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT, caat.jhsph.edu) in 2008, and now co-hosted with The Humane Society International-led Animal-Free Safety Assessment (AFSA) Collaboration (www.afsacollaboration.org), was inspired by the 2007 National Academies’ report on “Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century, A Vision and a Strategy.” Typically beginning with presentations from a number of invited speakers and followed by an opportunity for participants to ask questions, make announcements, or offer comment on germane topics, these satellite meetings have provided an informal setting in which interested stakeholders can receive high-level updates on cutting-edge approaches in toxicology, all within a single session. In their early years, the satellite meetings put considerable emphasis on large-scale, government-led, high-throughput testing programs in the United States, namely Tox21 and ToxCast. In more recent years, as the field has evolved, these sessions have broadened to include updates on a spectrum of related projects in the US and abroad, highlighting additional technologies (e.g., microphysiological systems, artificial intelligence, and other New Approach Methodologies) and additional programs (e.g., EU Tox-Risk). The speakers are among the main drivers of their respective efforts. This year’s session offers presentations that will unveil up-and-coming activities within various organizations leading the charge in the shift to NAMs.

Reminder: The main SOT Annual Meeting, Sunday, March 19, through Thursday morning, March 23, will not be livestreamed.

Thursday, March 23, 12:00 Noon to 4:30 PM, Room 104A, Music City Center

Free Add-On Event; Hosted by Weida Tong, US FDA/National Center for Toxicological Research (NCTR)

Artificial intelligence (AI) has changed the landscape of bioscience, including toxicology, with a broad and diverse range of methodologies. This satellite workshop will present these methodologies and illustrate their potential utility and impact in regulatory toxicology. Renowned international speakers from academia, industry, and government will present and cover AI topics for a broad range of application in drug development and regulatory application. Boxed lunch is provided. Workshop registration is free to all 2023 SOT attendees and highly recommended to secure a box lunch. Register
