Lab Automation 2017
14 28 3000

Welcome to Laboratory Automation 2017; a new and free virtual conference for professionals interested in the most recent technologies for today’s labs. Laboratory automation is a multi-disciplinary approach benefiting from technologies in the lab that facilitate new and improved processes. Laboratory automation professionals are academic, industry and clinically-based researchers, scientists and engineers who research and develop new technologies to increase productivity, improve data quality, and reduce manual lab processes for more reliable results.

Laboratory automation encompasses different instruments and methodologies used to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of research in the lab. Technology in present laboratories is imperative to timely research and data output. Laboratories focused on high-throughput screening, chemistry, automated clinical and analytical testing, diagnostics, biorepositories, and others, are more enabled due to advancements in laboratory automation.

Our topics for this years Lab Automation virtual conference include:

•    Automation and High-Throughput Technologies
•    Lab Automation and Screening  
•    Data Analysis and Informatics    
•    Micro- and Nanotechnologies    
•    Drug Target Strategies


Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. You can participate in exactly those parts which you are interested in and be back at your desk or bench in an instant. Virtual events remove time and place restrictions and ensure that everyone who wants to participate can do so. This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global automation community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

POSTER SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary, and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Posters should be submitted as a PowerPoint file. Presentations should incorporate illustrative materials such as tables, graphs, photographs, and large-print text. This content is not peer reviewed. Submission is free.

SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT

Enter the following information to this Submission Form:

  • Poster Title
  • Your Name
  • Your Institution
  • Your Email
  • Abstract describing the poster

All submitted abstracts will be reviewed and decisions regarding acceptance will be made as abstracts are received. You will be notified within one week of receipt about acceptance. Further details and registration materials will be provided at that time. You do not have to be present in order to have a poster displayed. Only those abstracts approved by LabRoots may display posters at this event.

If accepted, you will also have the opportunity to record a 3-5 minute summary video for each poster. LabRoots will work with each individual to create these videos. Video links and email contact information will be included on each poster displayed.
