WBC 2024: Abstract submission now open

As of 1 February 2024, brewing professionals are invited to submit technical abstracts and proposals for pre-meeting workshops and scientific sessions for the World Brewing Congress (WBC) 2024. The WBC 2024 will take place from 17–20 August 2024 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.

Every four years, the WBC unites the global brewing community to advance brewing science through the exchange of leading scientific research, established methodologies, and cutting-edge technologies. It is presented by the American Society of Brewing Chemists and Master Brewers Association of the Americas with active participation from the Brewery Convention of Japan, the European Brewery Convention, and the Institute of Brewing and Distilling.

WBC 2024 aims to provide a compass for the brewing community to chart its course through the challenges that brewers and brewing professionals encounter on a global scale. The deadline to submit proposals offering hands-on, interactive pre-meeting workshops featuring new topics and techniques in brewing is 22 February 2024. Happening August 17, these long-format workshops can run 3–8 hours. Abstracts for a presentation of technical research in oral or poster format can be submitted until 12 March.

The same submission deadline goes for the scientific sessions. These organized sessions are 75 minutes in length and focus on the selected 2024 challenge areas. This category is open to any format, including panel discussions, traditional presentations, workshops, etc.
