Accessibility at the Meeting


It is the Society’s sincere desire to comply fully with both the letter and the spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. For questions about accessibility, such as real-time captioning [communication access real-time translation (CART)], special printing needs, or reserved seating, please contact AMS staff by email ([email protected]). Four-week advance notice is necessary to ensure seamless action.

If issues arise on site in Boston, please visit the AMS Registration Desk. Special housing needs should be requested when hotel reservations are made. AMS wants to ensure that each attendee's stay at the 100th Annual Meeting is a pleasant and productive one.
