The Association for Laboratory Automation (ALA), a multi-disciplinary, non-profit scientific association spanning diverse industries and technology sectors, is encouraging academicians, scientists, engineers, post-doctoral associates, graduate students, and business leaders from the academic, government or industrial domain to submit abstracts for poster presentations at its LabAutomation2008 Conference and Exhibition, January 26-30 in Palm Springs, CA.

Abstracts are currently being accepted through January 25, 2008. Abstracts should describe original research on topics relevant to any of the following five program tracks: Detection and Separation, Micro- and Nanotechnologies, High-Throughput Technologies, Informatics, and New Frontiers for LabAutomation: Agricultural and Food Sciences. Poster presentations are hand-picked by ALA's Scientific Committee, based on their originality and contribution to the advancement of the laboratory automation field.

Anyone who submits an abstract for a poster presentation is eligible to win a Segway PT. ALA’s Segway to Success Campaign was launched this year to encourage individuals to submit a podium presentation or poster abstract for LabAutomation2008 and/or a manuscript for the Journal of the Association for Laboratory Automation (JALA) by January 25, 2008. One winner of a Segway PT will be randomly selected from all submissions regardless of whether or not they are selected for presentation at LabAutomation2008 or publication in JALA.
