“I have presented posters at several AOCS meetings over the last few years and have found these gatherings to be an excellent platform for presenting my work to a targeted audience with a high level of expertise. In my experience, the poster presentations are effective at facilitating considerable engagement with conference attendees.”
-Jessica Beekman, Ph.D., Research Chemist, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, USA

"I absolutely felt amazed with the ease that AOCS provided me as a presenter. Although skeptical in the beginning, all doubts disappeared when I realized how easy all the technical people who worked hard in the background made it for me. It was a great virtual experience and as flawless as it could be and with rewarding results and metrics. Thank you AOCS staff!"
-Apostolos Pappas, PhD, Senior Dermatology Consultant, Nogra Pharma and Entrinsic Biosciences, Switzerland

“Presenting our research poster at AOCS was a great experience and we received a lot of inquiries from other attendees. AOCS made it very easy to connect with others and build necessary relationships to promote our project.”
