The ASHG 2020 virtual meeting includes 18 Invited sessions programmed across four days of programming (October 27-30). All sessions are included in the registration fee and will be available on demand afterwards.
Invited sessions are developed and proposed by ASHG members around a particular topic of interest and run in concurrent timeslots. Submitting an invited proposal offers ASHG members the opportunity to directly participate in the development of the scientific program. Through a rigorous review process, the ASHG Program Committee assembles the best program possible on a diverse set of topics in human genetics.
Invited speaker guidelines and presentation instructions will be available shortly at this link.
