Annual Meeting programming includes special interest group programming, abstract-based sessions (plenaries, parallel sessions, and posters) and a variety of other lectures, workshops and symposia. Annual Meeting programming is included in all registration packages (Flex, Clinical and Basic) or you can register for Annual Meeting only.
Education Sessions examine the most recent trends and advancements in hepatology, both domestically and worldwide. AASLD's Scientific Program Committee determines topics for these sessions that will best serve the educational needs of Annual Meeting attendees.
Courses and Workshops are open to attendees registered for the Annual Meeting, and target specific areas in hepatology based on professional background.
Oral Abstract Sessions feature a series of didactic presentations representing important clinical and translational research findings by topic category, and include the Plenary, Parallel, and Late-breaking abstract sessions.
Poster sessions provide an opportunity for authors to display and discuss their research. More than 2,000 basic science and clinical posters are scheduled for presentation. Exclusive networking opportunities enable attendees and researchers to connect and establish new collaborations during these sessions.
Plenary sessions feature didactic presentations representing the most outstanding scientific research submitted to AASLD. Presenters will have 10 minutes to discuss their research, followed by a 5-minute Q&A period. Three Presidential Plenary sessions and two Transplant Plenary sessions each will offer distinguished abstract presentations.
Similar to plenary sessions, parallel sessions feature 10-minute research presentations followed by a 5-minute Q&A period. Parallel sessions run concurrently and are grouped by scientific topic. Feel free to stay for an entire parallel session, or attend multiple sessions that are of interest to you.
SIG Programs feature highly focused didactic lectures for scientists and health care professionals on a range of topics within the field of hepatology. SIGs will present content on a variety of topics that speak to attendees various special interests.
