2020 Algae Biomass Summit going virtual

The 2020 Algae Biomass Summit is going virtual. In light of the continued uncertainty around the global COVID-19 outbreak the Algae Biomass Organization’s board of directors has decided to transition the key industry event into a virtual format to best move the industry forward while prioritizing the health and safety of attendees.

According to a statement from the organization, “We are updating our 2020 program to take advantage of virtual tools that will give our attendees even better access to the commercial and scientific progress that is shared every year at the world’s largest algae conference. We will also leverage online platforms to offer even more networking and collaboration opportunities for the scientists, entrepreneurs, companies and investors that are driving algae innovation forward.”

Registration is open now and includes access to all of the Summit’s online events, nearly 100 speaker presentations and networking opportunities. Session recordings will also be available to all attendees.

Rather than a busy three-day sprint of multiple overlapping sessions, the Summit’s 2020 programming will be spread over several weeks this Fall. In August, the Summit will start with a bi-weekly series of special “Industry Spotlight” Sessions. These 90-minute sessions will bring together experts from across the supply chain to explore the algae opportunity in specific market segments. Topics will include algae in polymers, human nutrition, carbon capture, ecosystem services and more. Each webinar will include opportunities to network with speakers and participants.

On September 8-10, a program of keynote speakers, plenary panels, and intensive networking will explore the global potential of ABS’ conference theme this year: Algae 2020 – Sustainable, Scalable Solutions. Each session will be followed by live Q&A and networking events.

September 14-30 will consist of the Summit’s technical and breakout programming, with sessions from ABS’ Topical Tracks, as well as the Young Innovators Lounge for those looking to advance a career in algae, the annual Poster Session judging, and more networking opportunities.

ABO is still accepting abstract proposals for speaking and poster presentations. Fill out the abstract form here.
