Dear Colleagues,With the new year just around the corner, it is already time to start thinking about and planning for ASHG 2021! Although we are still determining whether the meeting will be in-person or virtual, the Program Committee is soliciting proposals for invited sessions to showcase the most consequential and innovative work in genetics and genomics. Submitting an invited scientific proposal or interactive workshop proposal offers ASHG members the opportunity to directly participate in the development of the scientific program for the 2021 meeting. Through a rigorous review process, the ASHG Program Committee assembles the best program possible on a diverse set of topics in human genetics.
The submission period is December 17 through January 28, 2021. Tips, guidelines and step by step instructions may be found here. Session proposals must be submitted via ASHG’s online system. After the deadline, proposals go under immediate review by the Program Committee. Final decisions will be sent to all proposers in April 2021.
On behalf of all ASHG Program Committee members, I thank you in advance for your participation and efforts in making ASHG 2021 a great success. I look forward to seeing you next fall. For general questions or additional information, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
