Call for Papers

The 2021 Annual Meeting will be held virtually, beginning March 12 and ending March 18, 2021, via Zoom. Sectional Chairs and participants who are designated panel chairs will work with the Secretary-Treasurer to set up their sessions online and be responsible for the efficient operation of the sessions.

AOS members who submitted papers that were accepted for the cancelled 2020 Meeting in Boston are invited to resubmit those papers for inclusion on the Program of the 231st Meeting. The Program, which will be accessible online in late January 2021, will provide information on other special activities and events to take place during the meeting.

2021 Meeting Registration Fee and Abstract Submission
All attendees at the 2021 Meeting will need to have paid the registration fee (as either a Regular Member or a Student Member). For the 2021 virtual Meeting, the registration fee has been reduced to $75 ($50 for students). For the fifteen AOS members who requested that their registration fee paid for the 2020 meeting be used toward the 2021 meeting, registration is required but no registration fee need be paid. Members or non-members desirous of presenting at the Meeting should also remit their 2021 dues and submit an abstract (see below for submission form)—the deadline for abstract submission is October 15, 2020
