BE GREEN IN 2020!!!
In an effort to keep meeting costs low, and to reduce our impact on the environment, ASM will continue to phase out a print version of the Program Booklet and Abstract Book. To date, efforts to phase out the print version of the program (and abstract booklet) have resulted in the savings of 289,545 pieces or 560 reams of paper.
To continue this effort, the Program and Abstract Book will be available for free as a PDF on the meeting website. In addition, the Program will be available to all attendees via the free meeting app. Details regarding the meeting app will be posted at a later date! For those still wanting a paper copy, the Program and Abstract Book can be purchased during registration for $6 and $8, respectively. NO COPIES WILL BE SOLD ONSITE!!!
Registration for the 2020 Annual Meeting has a three-tiered registration structure with seven categories available under each tier. Registration rates vary depending on when you register for the conference. As the conference dates get closer the registration rates will go up. Rates for each tier will automatically change at 12:01 a.m. Central Daylight Time on the dates listed below. Become an ASM member and save today!
