Annual Meeting

The 227th Annual Meeting of the AOS will be held Friday, March 17–Monday, March 20, 2017, in Los Angeles, CA. The Program (4) provides information on other special activities and events to take place during the meeting as well.

A block of conference-rate accommodations has been reserved at the Omni Los Angeles Hotel at California Plaza, 251 South Olive Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012, adjacent to the Museum of Contemporary Art and one block from the Los Angeles Music Center, Los Angeles Opera House, Walt Disney Concert Hall and other cultural facilities.

Conference rates per night for rooms are $209 single or double. You must make reservations directly with the hotel well in advance of the meeting, no later than February 24, 2017. After the cutoff date, any uncommitted rooms in the block we have reserved will be released for general sale, and additional reservation requests will be accepted, if rooms are available, without the conference discount. Conference rates also apply 3 days prior to the meeting based on availability. It is unlikely that rooms will be available after the meeting owing to a citywide convention.

Toll-free Omni reservation line: 1-800-THE-OMNI (843-6664); Direct 213-617-3300. Be sure to refer to the “American Oriental Society 2017” guestroom block. It is also possible to reserve by visiting our customized Group Web Page.

Pre-registration has begun. Payment of pre-registration fees (which include the banquet and abstracts) can be made through the AOS shop. Please remember to indicate your banquet preference. For a copy of the abstracts to be sent by mail if you are not attending the Meeting, payment of $25 can be made.
