AFS Annual Meeting Still Growing

Monday, June 02, 2014   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Lorraine Cashman

Early indicators suggest that participation in the AFS Annual Meeting continues to grow, by several measures:

  • 2014 set a new record for the 21st century for the total number of proposals, up 28% since last year, and 5% higher than the last largest meeting in New Orleans.

  • The number of preregistrations to date is 10% higher than the comparable number for New Orleans.

  • The number of individuals who will present in some capacity is almost 10% higher than in New Orleans, most likely because of the recent enforcement of our policy to limit individuals to one presentation: since individuals can present only once, presentation slots opened up for a larger number of people to participate.
