In 2013, from the 2nd to 6th September, the 51st Annual Meeting of the International Association of Forensic Toxicologists (TIAFT) will be held in Portugal, in the city of Funchal on the island of Madeira.
From the scientific point of view, TIAFT 2013 will surely be an unforgettable event, involving the most renowned international specialists in the field, and all the areas of Toxicology will be open to discussion and analysis. It will offer a unique opportunity to update your knowledge concerning the most recent scientific, technological and doctrinal advances, to share ideas and experiences, and of course to make contact with academics and other professionals from all over the world. Further information about this event is available at www.tiaf2013.mj.pt, where you can also register.
If you require an official letter of invitation in order to qualify for a visa or economic support, the organizing committee will be pleased to provide it for you, under the terms/conditions stated on the website.
The website also provides useful information about hotel reservations. As regards transport, you can fly to Madeira from Lisbon airport in Portugal (and why not to take the opportunity and visit this beautiful city, too?) or directly from several countries. Note that many low-cost airlines fly directly to Madeira, and that it is also accessible by boat.
I would be very grateful if you could extend this information in your institution, passing it on to anyone that may be interested in taking part at the Conference!
I look forward to welcome you all in Madeira!
President of the 2013 TIAFT Meeting
