IMPORTANT NOTICE: With the uncertainty remaining around the COVID-19 pandemic, ACDIS has made the decision to reschedule the annual conference to October 25-28, 2021, at the Sheraton Hotel in Dallas, Texas. We are planning on hosting our usual live pre-conference events and adding online/virtual tracks to supplement the in-person offering. Due to this move, we will keep the conference speaker application period open through January 8, 2021. We encourage you to apply to speak by clicking here. If you have already applied to speak, thank you! We are continuing our reviews and will let speakers know as soon as possible if they have been selected.

To learn more about the ACDIS conference, take a look at our video and see the excitement for yourself.

If you have any questions, email Associate Editorial Director Melissa Varnavas ( We hope you’ll consider sharing your experiences and expertise.
