Symposium Proposal Information
The International Society of Exposure Science (ISES) is now accepting symposium proposals for its 31st Annual Virtual Meeting, with the theme, “Multisector Engagement for Addressing Emerging Environmental Exposures” held virtually August 30-September 2, 2021. Symposium proposals can be submitted beginning November 30, 2020, and the deadline for proposal submission is January 29, 2021.
The 2021 meeting will promote information sharing and facilitate discussion on exposure science, and related fields, across sectors. In particular, we will look at how might we better understand and respond to the complex and multidisciplinary issues in exposure assessment and environmental health through science and policy implementation. This theme will be actively incorporated throughout this integrated program.
Please consider how your symposium idea might support the conference theme and reflect its interdisciplinary and multi-scale nature, as well as the different communities involved. The co-chairs would like to encourage creative symposium proposals incorporating topic areas including, but not limited to:
- Application of sensors in exposure assessment
- Citizen Science and Community-engaged Research
- Climate change
- Disparities in environmental exposure and health
- Emerging environmental exposures
- Impacts of public health policy
- Multiple stressor interactions
- Risk Communication
- Statistical methods in exposure science and epidemiology
- Translational Research
- Use of “big data” in exposure science
Symposia will be accepted for two potential session lengths and formats other than traditional podium presentation are encouraged (if giving presentations they should be between 10-20 min):
- 60 minute
- 90 minute
Symposia proposal acceptance will be based on adherence to the conference theme and quality of the proposed presentations. Only one symposium proposal will be accepted for each participant. We encourage diversity among the presenters such that symposium speakers reflect the diversity of professionals in exposure science and climate science. It is expected that all speakers will have agreed to participate and will register and attend the meeting at their own expense. We kindly ask symposium organizers to produce a short summary of symposium discussions or a joint statement for possible distribution to society members after the conclusion of the annual meeting.
