The 2020 SOMA Virtual Scientific Assembly's on demand interactive platform is a dynamic tool to help you easily navigate all the offerings available.  You can search and browse recorded sessions and e-Posters by specialty, speaker, track category and more.  There are also helpful icons to help visualize different session offerings.

As a registered attendee, you can build your schedule with recorded sessions and e-Posters to help you plan your CE experience in advance, providing easy access to the content of your choice.

What to expect:
  • Easy access:  SOMA members and those that have attended the Scientific Assembly previously will be able to use their existing user name and password to access the event site immediately after registering.  Non-members are also welcome and encouraged to attend.  Register anytime; it will be open for the full six weeks the virtual assembly is available.
  • Extended On Demand Education: At least 30 CME/CAPCE hours of education will be recorded by the presenters to view at your convenience - within the six weeks the Virtual Assembly is available.  With your registration, you will have unlimited access to all sessions and the virtual exhibit hall.
  • Research Presentations: Current research will be presented both orally and through a Poster Gallery.  Posters will be accompanied by a very brief audio recording.
  • Interaction: Participants will be able to interact with presenters through text Q&A, with live video chat scheduled for some sessions.
  • Exhibitors and Sponsors: Exhibitors will have virtual booths to display their products and services and set hours to have live interactions with participants. Select exhibitors will highlight their latest products through a Product Showcase.
