Call for Applications

International Scientific Committee 


International Abstract Reviewers

AIHA is proud to host the 11th International Occupational Hygiene Association (IOHA) International Scientific Conference, taking place at the Washington Marriott Marquis in Washington, DC on September 24-26, 2018. We are seeking applications from individuals interested in serving on the International Scientific Committee (ISC) or as International Abstract Reviewers.

International Scient​​ific Committee (ISC)

The International Scientific Committee will oversee the selection of education content for the conference.  Applicants must be current and active members of an IOHA member organization. They should have extensive knowledge of the global practice of industrial/occupational hygiene.  

ISC members will:

  • Demonstrate leadership skills and the ability to be thoughtful, deliberative, and decisive
  • Work collaboratively in group settings
  • Professionally handle differences of opinion with peers
  • Represent the profession as whole and not just one practice area or specialty 
  • Think both long term and strategically as well as short-term and tactically
  • Work in a fair, consistent, defensible, and transparent manner

The ISC’s work will begin in September 2017 with designing the conference schedule and developing the Call for Abstracts, and will continue through the selection of sessions in early 2018. The work will be conducted virtually.

International Abstr​act Reviewers

International Abstract Reviewers will read and rate session abstracts submitted for the IOHA 2018 conference.  The Call for Abstracts will launch in January 2018 and the deadline for submissions will be in March. Abstract review will take place online during an approximately two-week period of time following the submission deadline. The scoring results of the abstract reviews will be used by the ISC to select the sessions for the conference. 


Applications for the International Scientific Committee and International Abstract Reviewers must be submitted using this form. The deadline for applications is 25 August 2017.​
