Special Symposia

Submit Proposal

The ASBMB Special Symposia program was established to provide specific or under-represented segments of the scientific community with opportunities to present unique, cutting-edge science and engage in active networking opportunities.  The ASBMB Special Symposia strive to achieve a well-respected reputation among its membership and within the larger scientific community, based on the quality of organizers, presenters and scientific programming, as well as by providing an over-all excellent attendee experience.  These meetings create a nurturing environment for our future scientists, with opportunities to highlight the work of students and young investigators on a scale not traditionally available in the larger, national meetings, with the majority of talks selected from the volunteered abstracts. 


  • Majority of talks are selected from abstracts, with about 10 platform invited talks
  • Meetings are 2-4 days in length
  • 75 - 200 attendees, including investigators, industry professionals, graduate and postdoctoral students
  • Meetings are held in the USA and internationally, often at unique locations for outdoor recreation and informal networking opportunities
  • ASBMB provides complete meeting management and initial seed funding to secure the meeting facility and other meeting related services.
