Call for Proposals
Submit Your 2024 Proposal
We are now accepting proposals for Invited Symposia and Organized Contributed sessions.

A few things the Pittcon Program Committee are looking for as we review submissions include:

Research and innovations that are timely and relevant to the west coast scientific community

A diversity of voices on the speaker list (industry, government, academia, entrepreneurs, experienced scientists, rising scientists, gender and racial and ethnic diversity, etc.)

Emphasis on fundamental and/or applied research and not a sales pitch.

The session descriptions that more strongly make the case in these three areas will have the best chance for a high-profile spot in the technical program.

Highly competitive with limited openings in the technical program. Symposia speakers will receive the highest level of recognition and reimbursement available for non-awardee Pittcon invited speakers. These sessions consist of 4 invited speakers as chosen by an organizer.

Organized Contributed
Second tier of the technical program. Still very competitive with up to 7 speakers as chosen by the organizer. Speakers are asked to limit their talks to 20 minutes unless otherwise decided by the Program Committee.
