WARNING - Please be aware 
I am sorry to say that yet again we are having issues with a conference organiser using the EUROTOX name to promote another meeting.  Please be aware of this promotion, it is not associated with EUROTOX and always check that you are looking at official EUROTOX information.  The official EUROTOX congress is EUROTOX 2019 and the website is For our EUROTOX congresses the word EUROTOX is always in capital letters and the official EUROTOX email is

The Executive Committee will look into this and try to prevent this from happening in the future. Please be aware.

Best wishes,
Heather Wallace
President of EUROTOX
