2017 SACNAS will be held October 19-21 in Salt Lake City, Utah

You + Service

Transform your passion for science into service by preparing a session for 2017 SACNAS. Our sessions provide an opportunity for mentoring, recruitment, and presentations on cutting-edge, multidisciplinary science. We invite you to share your expertise with us this October by proposing a scientific symposia or professional development session today.

We look for a wide range of ideas and perspectives for sessions within two main categories:

Scientific Symposia Session: Highliting cutting-edge research, ideas, industry knowledge from community members who are experts in their STEM disciplines. This includes original research, advancements, and multidisciplinary approaches to the STEM fields. 

Professional Development Session: SACNAS is looking for sessions that will provide attendees with guidance and training in beyond-the-bench skills.
