When you register, don’t forget to: Register for workshops, social events, and field trips; Apply for an ASM Grant and Award; Make your hotel reservation; Book your travel; and invite a colleague to attend!  Abstract submission will be open until March 31st, 2019; however, register today to take advantage of lower rates!

BE GREEN IN 2019!

In an effort to keep meeting costs low, and to reduce our impact on the environment, ASM will continue to phase out a print version of the Program Booklet and Abstract Book. To date, efforts to phase out the print version of the program (and abstract booklet) have resulted in the savings of 153,069 pieces or 306 reams of paper. The Program Committee’s goal is to be completely digital by 2020.

The Program Booklet and Abstract Book will be available for free on the meeting website in advance of the meeting. In addition, the Program will be available to all attendees via the free meeting app. Details regarding the meeting app will be posted at a later date! The Program Booklet and Abstract Book can be purchased during registration for $6 and $8, respectively.

ASM CENTENNIAL ISSUE OF THE JOURNAL OF MAMMALOGY
