The American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC Washington, DC, USA) has decided to hold the 2020 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo as a virtual event, rather than as a live meeting, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

AACC’s flagship scientific conference and expo will now be offered on an innovative digital platform built for learning, collaboration, networking, and technology exploration. The AACC has reiterated its commitment to delivering a meeting experience comparable in value and impact to its typical face-to-face conference and expo. A virtual meeting will ensure the safety of a global audience while providing greater accessibility and flexibility for the attendees to consume world-class scientific content in the way that is most convenient for them.

The virtual event will be held on December 13-17 and AACC’s online registration site for the virtual meeting will be available on September 15.
