Due to the pandemic preventing our in-person TIAFT Annual Meeting, we have endeavoured to incorporate the usual scientific and social elements as best as we can in a virtual setting to celebrate our global network of members and colleagues. The event will span three days incorporating multiple time zones, live Q&A and recorded sessions to facilitate maximum participation in addition to innovative live networking opportunities for delegates.

As this is a global event, we recognise the challenge of having an ‘ideal’ time for sessions that meets the needs of ALL attendees. This means that if you wish to attend a particular live session, you may need to wake up early or stay up late. Obviously, we will strive to organise the program in such a way that it maximally aligns with the presenters’ time zones. But also know that to accommodate the issue of the different time zones, all sessions will be recorded and made available shortly afterwards, so our registrants can always catch up on a session that they were unable to attend live for 3 months post Meeting.

The scientific program topics have been categorised into three primary areas; Analytical Methods, Case Reports and New Innovations & Research, to encourage a wide range of scientific content. The preliminary program shown below (still subject to change) encompasses 80 oral presentations overall of 8 minutes each (plus 2 minutes for live questions) in addition to poster sessions incorporating interaction through short “flash” presentations and some time for networking and to hear industry updates.
