The AOAC INTERNATIONAL Midyear Meeting and Analytical Solutions Forum has evolved to empower the scientific community to take the lead on addressing global issues.
The Midyear Meeting serves as a venue for the AOAC community to come together to advance needed analytical methods through dialog and consensus. The 2022 Midyear Meeting will take place March 14 – 18, 2022 at the Gaithersburg Marriott Washingtonian Center in Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA.
The Analytical Solutions Forum (ASF) is a mechanism for global stakeholders to identify new technologies and emerging analytical needs and to propose actions to address them. During the Midyear Meeting, the ASF introduces and triages new ideas to be further developed for potential adoption as AOAC projects or programs. This year’s ASF theme is Spotlighting New Partnerships for Analytical Solutions in Support of Food Safety Science in Africa. Learn more >

Note: All virtual options are live, synchronous presentations. They will NOT be available in on-demand recorded format.
