The Latest in Scientific Discovery, Technology and Innovation: Podium Presentations Offer SLAS2020 Participants Quality Educational Opportunities

Expand your field of view through a world-class scientific program that showcases the top laboratory science and technology podium presentations from industry leaders around the globe. Each podium presentation is hand selected by the SLAS2020 Scientific Program Committee from hundreds of abstract submissions, which are vigorously reviewed. Presentations offer SLAS2020 participants compelling content and fresh perspectives on emerging laboratory technologies from a broad range of industries, including drug discovery and development, informatics, clinical diagnostics, food and agricultural sciences, forensics and security sciences, petrochemicals and energy, and consumer products.

Abstract Submission

The Scientific Program Committee selects speakers based on the innovation, relevance and applicability of research. If your proposed topic does not squarely fit into the focus of one of these tracks, please submit it for the committee’s consideration and, if selected, the committee will place it in the most relevant track. The committee members use their judgment and experience to select presentations that best address the interests and priorities of today’s life sciences discovery and technology community.

Podium Presentations

SLAS2020 presents 144 unique podium presentations that span seven educational tracks and 36 sessions. Podium presentations are presented on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in both morning and afternoon sessions. Podium presentations are organized into ten educational tracks. View track and session titles and descriptions and names of track and session chairs.

The committee members use their judgment and experience to select presentations that best address the interests and priorities of today’s life sciences discovery and technology community.

Podium abstracts will be reviewed in late summer and the podium program will be finalized and published by early October.

The deadline for abstract submission for podium presentations was August 5, however, poster abstracts will be accepted until Monday, January 13, 2020. For complete details regarding the SLAS2020 Call for Abstracts, click here.
