ASM Conferences

ASM Conferences provide a forum for discussion and dissemination of specialized scientific information in an environment designed to encourage interaction amongst participants. In post-meeting surveys conducted since 1997, ASM Conferences have consistently exceeded expectations for excellence in execution and content. For all ASM Conferences since 1997, no less than 96% of participants say they would recommend the conference they attended to a colleague.  Each ASM Conference is selected to support the mission of the ASM Conferences Program.

The mission of the ASM Conferences Program is as follows:
  • To identify emerging or underrepresented topics of broad scientific significance
  • To facilitate interactive exchange in meetings of 100 to 700 people
  • To encourage student and postdoctoral participation
  • To recruit individuals in disciplines not already involved in ASM to ASM membership
  • To foster interdisciplinary and international exchange and collaboration with other scientific organizations
