2020 Call for Abstracts



The 2020 Algae Biomass Summit welcomes a wide range of abstracts for speaking and poster presentations across scientific, engineering, commercial and educational interests. The Summit will expose audiences to the latest innovations in microalgae and macroalgae technology developments, scientific breakthroughs and products. Join us as we build the future of this industry.


Update June 8, 2020:

If you are interested in participating in the Summit we are still accepting abstracts for speaking and poster presentations! Abstracts will be reviewed on a rolling basis.


Why submit an abstract?

  • To support the only algae conference that re-invests into the algae community's work to sustain and grow federal research funding and other supportive policies for the algae industry.
  • To see new algae technologies, products, and processes first-hand at the event and on exclusive tours.
