Late-breaking abstracts for oral presentations

Submission deadline: 15 January 2025

Recognizing that the results of some high impact research were not available by the general abstract submission deadline (1 July 2024), The World Mycotoxin Forum® offers an option for late-breaking abstracts for oral presentations. Late-breaking abstracts are defined as: ’Highly significant and timely findings in mycotoxin research that were not available by the regular abstract submission deadline’.

Accepted abstracts will be invited for an oral presentation in the ‘Late-Breaking’ session on Tuesday 8 April 2025.
