Who attends?

The AAAS Annual Meeting is interdisciplinary and inclusive—all members of the science and technology community are welcome to join us.

What happens at the Annual Meeting?

Every year, thousands of leading scientists, engineers, educators, policymakers, and journalists gather from around the world to discuss recent developments in science and technology. The meeting includes symposia, career development workshops, an international Exhibit Hall, poster sessions, Family Science Days, and more. The program schedule is now available.

The Annual Meeting is also an opportunity to network with your colleagues and with leaders in the science and technology community.

Reduced rates

To qualify for reduced rates, members are required to indicate their membership number; postdocs and teachers are required to provide their institution and chair or principal investigator’s name; students are required to indicate their institution’s name and graduation year; and emeritus members are required to indicate their retirement year and institution.
