Join us in Houston, TX for the annual conference. Learn about the incredible speakers lined up for plenary lectures and tutorials. We know you will discover the George R. Brown Convention Center to be an ideal location for the meeting. All session rooms on a single level (and it's not too long!) with posters and exhibits easily accessible below on the ground level. Just outside the front doors of the convention center you can enjoy Discovery Green park.

We continue to monitor the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak and the challenges it poses to events like the ASMS Conference. As of today, March 17, we plan to move forward with the 68th ASMS Conference, May 31-June 4, 2020. A formal re-evaluation will take place in mid-April regarding the viability of holding the conference. We will provide you with weekly updates to keep you informed.

Please read our updated Statement regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) for additional information on adjusted deadlines and other important information.

We know how much ASMS means to our community. While we hope that we won’t have to cancel, we recognize that it is a possibility. We are striving to balance making an informed decision (see how things go over the next month) with giving our members, corporate members, and all attendees enough time to plan. Take care of yourselves and stay tuned for our updates.
