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 dialogue and consensus. The 2024 Midyear Meeting will take place March 4– 7, 2024, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Washington DC North/Gaithersburg Hotel 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.

Meeting content can be accessed on the App website or on the AOAC year-round app. The app is available now for Apple and Android devices. Search for AOAC INTERNATIONAL in the Apple App Store or the Google Play store.

Sessions will not be recorded and provided on-demand.
