All attendees of the in-person Denver meeting need to be fully vaccinated and boosted, and masks are required indoors. We have set aside a room for attendees comfortable eating without their masks, and encourage spreading out in the conference spaces. We continue to monitor the pandemic situation and will communicate any changes in programmatic offerings and/or managing the event. Please contact AAAS if you have questions.

Download Now Vaccination Requirements After carefully reviewing the public health data, we have decided that attendees at the in-person conference this spring must be fully vaccinated as currently defined by the CDC (January 1, 2021), and boosted (receiving one mRNA shot) prior to attending. As a registrant for this event, we ask that you complete the following form, which will ask for your vaccination status and acknowledgment of our COVID-19 waiver. Information you share on this form will only be accessible to those responsible for the execution of this program. COVID-19 VACCINATION AND WAIVER FORM If you are unable to be vaccinated due to a medical and/or religious exemption, you will still be able to attend the event but will be required to provide documentation of a negative PCR COVID-19 test completed no more than 72-hours prior to arriving onsite. At this time, we are not requiring daily testing of our participants, but we reserve the right to update this procedure if the COVID-19 status changes in the location of the event. You will be required to show documentation of your vaccination status or your negative PCR test results at onsite registration prior to receiving your name tag. If you are not able to provide this documentation, you will not be allowed to participate in the event. Cancellation Policy All registrants who cancel prior to the conference or do not attend the conference forfeit their entire registration fee. Once you submit your registration you are not entitled to a refund. Please remember that canceling your conference registration does not automatically cancel your hotel and travel arrangements, individuals are responsible for canceling their own hotel and travel reservations.
