Virtual BIOCOMM 2021 - Staying Connected

Virtual BIOCOMM 2021

Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, for the first time ever BIOCOMM, the annual meeting of the BCA will become a year of virtual events. Monthly Zoom sessions of workshops, plenary presentations, Infoshare and our annual Business Meeting and Town Hall meetings will be spread throughout 2021.

Virtual BIOCOMM 2021 gives us an opportunity to stay connected while continuing to learn and network. There will be a range of topics throughout the year such as Forensic Radiology, Kirlian Photography and Photomicroscopy.

The March Virtual BIOCOMM event is Infoshare!

Do you have a favorite app that you can't live without?

A really cool technique that speeds up your workflow?

Repurposed some old equipment to perform new tasks?

Found a new toy? Made a new toy?

If so, we all want to hear about it!  You are invited to share a 5 minute "show and tell" of your idea, gadget, or technique.

If you have something to share please let us know. You can email Connie Johansen, Director Conferences with your idea and she will put you on the Infoshare presentation list.  We will also be accepting "unplanned" presentations during our Zoom meeting in case the feeling moves you!

Join us on March 9 for this free BIOCOMM event moderated by Jim Koepfler.

Please join us for Virtual BIOCOMM 2021. All are welcome to attend! Come and participate and meet new colleagues.

Our in-person annual meeting BIOCOMM 2022 will be in Santa Fe, New Mexico May 17‑22, 2022.
