  • Photo Release:  From time-to-time AMS uses photographs of conference events in its promotional materials. Unless this permission is revoked in writing to AMS, by virtue of their attendance all conference visitors agree to the use of their likeness in such materials.

  • Abstract Fee:  Please note that the abstract fee of $120 is refundable only if the abstract is NOT accepted.  The abstract fee is separate from the registration fee.

Once the membership has been purchased, restart your registration. Please note that it may take some time for your membership status to update within the registration platform.

  • Registration rates are the same for in-person and virtual participants. We made this decision so that we can offer a robust, flexible, and equitable experience for everyone, whether you are in-person or virtual. Other factors involved include:

    • Increased costs for the in-person experience (audiovisual expenses, food and beverage costs, facility rental, on-site labor, travel costs, health and safety protocols etc.)

    • Increased costs for the remote experience (internet and hardware for live streaming, software for messaging and chat, labor, etc.)

    • It makes it easier for attendees to change their registration method from in-person to virtual and vice versa

    • It allows presenters the opportunity to present/facilitate discussion in-person or virtually with an in-person and virtual audience.
