In-person and virtual attendance options available again this year

The AACR Annual Meeting 2023 will have plenty to offer onsite attendees in Orlando, Florida, including several opportunities to interact with other researchers during town halls, working group meetings, and satellite educational symposia. Virtual attendance is also an option for those who cannot attend in person. Both in-person and virtual registration options include access to live sessions, Q&A, networking, CME/MOC credits, on-demand access to all sessions after the meeting, and more.

“Attendees benefit from a scientific program that covers the full spectrum of innovative cancer research,” said Michael Beveridge, AACR Senior Director, Communications. “However, the challenge of attending such a robust meeting is navigating the expansive program. The AACR is offering an Online Itinerary Planner as well as a meeting app for in-person attendees to optimize each attendee’s experience.”

Both the online planner and the meeting app, which will be available by April 3, can be used to browse and search sessions, presentations, and speakers, and filter the results by topic tracks to create a meeting itinerary. Personal meeting itineraries can be stored in the planner or the app for easy access, and can also be exported to attendees’ personal calendars.

More than 6,000 proffered abstracts will be available to attendees through the online planner and the app, so attendees can view them from their desktops or mobile devices. The titles and authors of the clinical trial and late-breaking abstracts will be posted to the planner, and the full text of the abstracts will be available via the planner and meeting app beginning Friday, April 14, except the abstracts selected for inclusion in the official AACR press program.

Poster presentations will only be available onsite this year. There will be an afternoon poster session from 1:30 to 5 p.m. ET Sunday, April 16. Then on Monday and Tuesday, April 17-18, there will be poster sessions in the morning (from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. ET) and in the afternoon (from 1:30 to 5 p.m. ET). On Wednesday, April 19, a morning poster session will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. ET.

All session rooms at the Orange County Convention Center will be equipped with microphones for attendees to ask questions. Meeting participants can also submit questions through the virtual meeting platform or the app.

Onsite attendees can take advantage of professional childcare services at the convention center. Advance reservations for childcare services are strongly encouraged; onsite registration will be permitted as space allows. For more details and to register for onsite childcare, visit the Annual Meeting website.

Tiered registration rates are available for virtual attendees from low- and middle-income countries, noted Lisa Haubein, PhD, AACR Senior Director, Scientific Programs.

“While we feel strongly that collaboration and networking are important, we know that it’s not possible for everyone to join us in person,” she said. “We want to make our content available worldwide and give as many researchers the opportunity to access it as possible.”
