Hybrid meeting

HI GUYS!

AFTER SUCH A LONG BLACK OUT OF CONTACTS…

ARE YOU STILL CURIOUS TO EXPLORE THE

“OTHER SIDE OF THE MOON” OF HAIR TESTING?

WE ARE EXPECTING YOU IN VERONA!

 

The SoHT members and all the “hair testing” community are invited to convene in the beautiful city of Verona for the 2022 edition of the annual meeting of the Society.

The 2022 event will be a joint meeting of SoHT and the Italian Group of Forensic Toxicologists (GTFI).

This event will offer an unique opportunity for sharing new science and technology in a forensic multidisciplinary context, and glimpses towards promising new directions of this peculiar tool of investigation.

The event will be held from June 8rd to June 10th 2022, the perfect time for enjoying the beauties of Verona and surroundings, including Lake Garda, the vineyards of Valpolicella and Soave, Lessinia, Valeggio sul Mincio and Mantova.

Verona, located in the center of northern Italy, can easily be reached by plane (Verona Catullo International Airport), by train (Stazione Verona Porta Nuova) and highways (A4 and A22).

Verona offers top quality local food and wines (Valpolicella, Soave, Amarone, Custoza, just to mention a few of them) and easy accommodation in hotels and B&B, at reasonable costs.

The meeting venue at the University of Verona, School of Medicine, is equipped with modern lecture halls and spaces for poster presentation and for exhibitors.

 

Verona University is waiting for you!
