We’re Planning an Accessible In-Person Meeting
We’re looking forward to a full-scale gathering in person this year. We can’t wait to see you there!
This year, in order to continue our initiatives to make the Annual Meeting as widely accessible as possible, we took proposals for virtual paper presentations from those who cannot travel. Now, in the review and scheduling phase of our planning, we are looking for ways to integrate them into a limited number of hybrid panels.
We will release more information as it becomes available.

Preliminary information is sufficient to be given full consideration in scheduling. You don’t have to register to submit.
