Special Interest Subgroups
Member-Organized Special Interest Subgroups take a deep dive into specialty subjects under the seven scientific meeting tracks.
- All talks are to be selected from submitted abstracts. Organizers may ask speakers of interest to submit an abstract to their session.
- New! Sessions will run for either 90 minutes or 150 minutes. Session duration will be assigned prior to speaker notification. Requests for duration will not be considered.

Subgroups are completely organized by members from session idea to format, speaker selection, and schedule. Organizers can only be accepted to organize one Subgroup session.
Eligibility: All organizers must be ASCB members.
