Hot Topic Symposia

Hot Topic Symposia

The AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo is more than just a conference — it is a prime opportunity to advance your career and grow your network, all in one place. Professionals from all over the world come together online and in-person to share insights and perspectives while building new connections.

Hot Topic Symposia

With the constant evolution of emerging technologies, innovative research and updated regulations, the fats and oils industry must keep up. The Hot Topic Symposia is a chance for us to come together to address how critical shifts and related transformations, both current and on the horizon, will impact the business of fats and oils.

Submission System

The Hot Topic Symposia is populated by session ideas submitted by volunteer organizers. Submit your session proposal via CadmiumCD for consideration.

Please carefully review the Guidelines & CadmiumCD User Guide (PDF) for detailed instructions regarding proposal submission, session presentation preparation, and more.

Submission Deadline

Session proposals will be collected via the CadmiumCD Abstract Scorecard from September 1, 2020, to January 15, 2021. Proposals received after the submission deadline will be placed on a waiting list and reviewed by the Program Committee only if time and space allows.
