Congress of Toxicology in Developing Countries (CTDC)

CTDC Meetings

Congress of Toxicology in Developing Countries

Held every three years, Congresses on Toxicology in Developing Countries (CTDC) are sponsored by IUTOX. The meetings provide a forum for discussing toxicological problems facing developing countries in the future and exchanging views with toxicologists from all over the world, especially from developing countries and regions.

IUTOX Lifetime Achievement Award

The IUTOX Executive Committee is pleased to announce a newly created award, which will be presented for the first time during the opening ceremony at the 10th Congress of Toxicology in Developing Countries in Belgrade, Serbia (April 2018). The award will honor a distinguished scientist who has made lasting contributions to toxicology in countries where toxicology is underrepresented and will be a regular feature of future CTDC meetings. The Lifetime Achievement Award would not be possible without the generous support of our official sponsor, Current Protocols in Toxicology, a Wiley Brand.

How to Host a CTDC Meeting

CTDC Planning Timeline 

CTDC proposals from IUTOX Member Societies to host a CTDC must be sent in the form of a proposal to the Secretary-General of IUTOX who will report the proposal to the Executive Committee for evaluation.

Proposals should be received by the Secretary-General at least six months prior to the meeting at which they are to be considered. The following issues should be considering when preparing a proposal:

  1. The proposal shall be presented in a written form to the Secretary-General of IUTOX.
  2. The material must include the proposed dates and venue of the CTDC. The society should indicate how it plans to organize the meeting, and include names of key individuals within the organizing committee, e.g. the president, treasurer, chairperson of the program committee, and chairperson of the local organizing committee.
  3. A detailed budgetary plan for the expenses and income of the Congress, including proposed registration fees is required.
  4. The proposal should then be sent to IUTOX via email or mail.
