The 2020 LabKey User Conference Goes Virtual!

The annual LabKey User Conference will be held in a virtual format from October 6th to 9th 2020. All four days of the conference and training sessions will be free to attend! As with past conferences, this year will feature informative user presentations, product updates and announcements, educational Tech Talks led by our development team, and our Learn LabKey training sessions. This is an exciting opportunity for attendees to expand their knowledge of LabKey solutions and learn how LabKey is solving the data management, collaboration and workflow challenges faced by life science organizations.

During the conference, the user community has the opportunity to provide valuable feedback and insights to the LabKey team. LabKey Server, Biologics, and Sample Manager have all been developed with significant input and guidance from the scientific research community. This input continues to be the guide by which we prioritize features, optimize user experience within our applications, and make key decisions to deliver the most value to our users. This year we will invite all attendees to participate in UX sessions later in the month for our soon to be released Biologics ELN and Freezer Management applications.
