AASLD is now accepting proposals for the next Single Topic Conference in September 2019. AASLD Single Topic Conferences are one and one-half days in length and can focus on any single area in hepatology. Though they should be on a timely and relevant topic, a single topic conference should focus on established science and/or clinical practice and less on the emerging trends in a particular area.
