The Society for Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology is currently accepting abstracts for oral and poster presentations to be presented at the 37th Symposium on Biotechnology for Fuels and Chemicals. Technical presentations make up the majority of presentations, however detailed and informative presentations regarding commercial- and demonstration-scale endeavors advancing and promoting the emerging bio-based economy are strongly encouraged.  Presenters are asked to submit their abstracts to one of the six general research tracks listed.  The number of expected sessions for each track is indicated, however these may vary based on the number and quality of received abstracts.  Each session is expected to have 7 oral presentations.
In lieu of a keynote speaker this year, the 37th SBFC will begin with an hour-long poster preview session on Monday, April 27 immediately following opening remarks at 12;00 noon. Forty presenters will be chosen from accepted poster submissions to present their work on one slide in one minute in the general session meeting room. There will be no questions and no comments. This is an opportunity for poster presenters to preview their research to the entire meeting audience and to get your colleagues excited to see your work.
