Your Hybrid Experience

AMS is committed to ensuring that our meetings and events allow our attendees and presenters to share their science and connect with one another, however we can. As such, we’re going hybrid! You will be able to participate in all upcoming AMS Meetings in-person or virtually. 

Why are we going hybrid? While planning many virtual and hybrid meetings since March 2020, we realized that offering virtual meeting options made conferences like ours available to attendees who would never have the opportunity to participate otherwise. Without accessibility barriers like travel costs and time away from work and family, etc., our conferences have a greater reach — enriching everyone’s experience. 

The AMS community also benefits from the resiliency and flexibility of hybrid meetings. Regardless of changes or emergencies — large or small — we’ll be able to share our science and connect with one another. 

Finally, as a professional organization whose members are keenly aware of environmental issues, AMS strives to be at the forefront of environmental stewardship. By reducing the need for travel for those who choose to participate virtually, we can limit our impact on the environment.

While we are excited about the benefits associated with virtual participation in meetings, we are also committed to ensuring that the in-person experience at our conferences continues to be beneficial and enjoyable. Hybrid meetings are complex, and we plan to use our expertise and knowledge to improve our attendee experience as new technology, tools, and best practices become available. We are still working out the details, so be sure to check out each meeting’s homepage for the latest developments

During the 103rd AMS Annual Meeting, all attendees (in-person and virtual) will have access to the same content. All attendees (in-person AND virtual) will be able to interact with each other - and with all presenters - at the same time.
