WORLDSymposium™ 2020 featured over 480 scientific abstracts presented at three separate poster sessions. These sessions were an excellent opportunity to see, hear and discuss specific research topics directly with the abstract authors, as well as enjoy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar with colleagues from around the globe.
If a poster number is not listed, it means the first author of the abstract chose not to present a poster at WORLDSymposium 2020.
All abstracts received by the October 1, 2019 deadline were considered for platform presentation and inclusion in the special lysosomes issue of Molecular Genetics and Metabolism (MGM) which was published in February 2020. Poster notifications and assigned poster numbers were sent to the first author of the submitted abstract at the beginning of December, 2019.
Late-breaking abstract submission (for poster consideration only) opened on November 1 and closed on December 1, 2019. Accepted late-breaking abstracts were not published in the February 2020 special “Lysosomes Issue” of Molecular Genetics and Metabolism but was published in the WORLDSymposium program materials onsite.
Registered attendees had access to an electronic copy of the program and abstracts via the WORLDSymposium 2020 Mobile App. Registered attendees logged onto the Mobile App using the confirmation code they received with their invitation to the Mobile App. The program and abstracts are copyrighted and was available to non-registrants through Elsevier.
It is the policy of WORLDSymposium to publish all abstracts with the list of authors exactly as the abstract were submitted to WORLDSymposium. The first author of the submitted abstract was listed as the presenting author on the Preliminary Program, Agenda, and Poster List.

All poster sessions were from 4:30-6:30 PM in the Exhibit Hall.

In addition, all poster presenters were required to submit an electronic version of their poster to be available to attendees throughout WORLDSymposium 2020.
