Administrative Committee Meetings
April 13-14, 17-18
Research Committee Meetings
AATCC administrative meetings use a completely virtual format. Participants can join from anywhere to help plan AATCC conferences, publications, membership campaigns, and more. Or just get a preview of what’s coming in the next year! A full schedule of meetings is available online.
Research committees develop and update the AATCC test methods and procedures recognized and used around the world. Ideas for new methods and revisions are always welcome. Besides working directly on the technical or editorial details of test methods, attendees make and renew professional connections with fellow members. Those who attend in person have opportunities to network over lunch or at an evening reception. This year, lunch is free!
The research committee meetings are held in a hybrid format to allow maximum participation. In-person meetings are held at the AATCC Technical Center in Research Triangle Park, NC, USA. Register for virtual or in-person attendance online. Hotel and shuttle details as well as detailed schedule are also available online. Some of the featured events of research committee week are listed below.
