Due to the threat of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Board of Directors has decided to hold the 2020 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo as a virtual event, rather than as a live meeting in Chicago, Ill. The meeting will still occur from December 13-17, 2020.

“We are excited by the unprecedented opportunity to reimagine AACC’s flagship scientific conference and expo on an innovative digital platform built for learning, collaboration, networking, and technology exploration,” says AACC President David Grenache, PhD, DABCC, FAACC. “We are committed to delivering a meeting experience comparable in value and impact to our typical face-to-face conference and expo. Most importantly, a virtual meeting ensures the safety of our global audience while providing greater accessibility and flexibility for our attendees to consume world-class scientific content in the way that is most convenient for them.”

Registering for the Virtual Meeting

At this time, AACC has temporarily paused registration. The online registration site for the virtual meeting will be available beginning September 15.

If you have already registered, you will be contacted no later than September 15 with instructions for modifying your current registration. You will have the option to cancel for a full refund or convert your registration to a virtual meeting option.

If you have made a hotel reservation through the AACC housing site, your reservation will be canceled automatically. Your credit card will not be charged.

If you have not yet registered, registration options for the virtual meeting will be announced soon, and both members and non-members will be able to register online beginning September 15.
