On behalf of the organizing committee, we are proud to announce that the 19th World Congress of the International Society on Toxinology (IST) will be held in Haikou, People’s Republic of China, from October 24 to 31, 2017.
It is the first time that IST World Congress will be held in China. The 19th congress will incorporate the 11th Asia Pacific Conference of the International Society on Toxinology and the 13th Chinese Conference on Toxin and Medical Application. We will also welcome representation from our affiliate societies of the IST. Thus, the 19th IST World Congress will encompass a broad range of themes, including bacterial toxins, fungal toxins, plant toxins, animal venoms, synthesized toxins, toxin discovery & structure identification, toxin pharmacology, and clinical toxinology etc.
Following the great success of previous IST world congresses, scholars from all over the world are cordially invited to participate. We anticipate there will be approximately 400 participants and many highly prestigious researchers have expressed their interest to attend. Another exciting new activity at the 2017 IST will be presentations by our student members of the IST. These presentations will be selected by the IST Student Committee comprised of student members from the three IST regional sections.
As you can see, this congress will provide numerous opportunities and venues for you to present your exciting results and network with international colleagues and students. Furthermore, the host city Haikou is located on a beautiful international tourism island, boasting evergreen trees, high quality air, scenic coastlines, and rich Asian cultures.
We sincerely invite you to attend this hallmark biennial event of IST in 2017 and we look forward to meeting you in Haikou.
