We are writing to inform you that the American Association for Aerosol Research Board has voted to switch the 2021 American Association for Aerosol Research Conference from an in-person event to a Virtual Conference. The conference dates of October 18-22 will remain unchanged.
This decision is being made in light of the rapidly increasing number of reported COVID-19 cases in the United States in August 2021 and the uncertainty this brings in terms of the safety of travel and in-person gatherings in the coming weeks and months. Thank you to all of you that completed the survey we sent out last week to ask for your thoughts on an in-person conference. Linked here are the aggregate answers to the second question; in large part the switch to a virtual format appears to be consistent with the wishes of the AAAR membership.
Please be on the lookout for further details on the virtual format, which will be different from the in-person program published online. Everyone submitting an abstract will have an opportunity to withdraw the abstract, and those who had withdrawn due to travel restrictions or concerns will have the opportunity to un-withdraw the abstract. Please anticipate the following in the next few weeks:
We thank you for your patience as we work to make the virtual AAAR conference a highly interactive, educational, and enlightening event.
Chris Hogan, AAAR 2021 Conference Chair
Sergey Nizkorodov, AAAR President
October 18 - 22, 2021
AAAR 38th Annual Conference
