The 2023 Annual Meeting will be dual-component with sessions offered on-site in Chicago April 13-16 and other sessions and select recordings from in-person events provided virtually on May 4-5. 

Participants who register for the place-based meeting in Chicago are also registered for and able to attend the virtual component. Those registered for the virtual component will experience Presidential sessions and major plenaries with cross-cutting, as well as networking opportunities and a special closing event. They will have access to major livestreamed sessions from the place-based meeting in Chicago and recordings of place-based sessions in the online platform’s video library. All webstreamed sessions will be housed on the platform.

AERA registration is now open. All registration services are being provided through AERA. To obtain help with your registration, please contact the AERA Registration Support Team on weekdays between 8 am and 6 pm at or call 202-238-3200 and select Option 3. Registration must be completed before access to the housing portal can be obtained.

Registration Requirement

It is the policy of AERA that all persons in attendance at the 2023 AERA Annual Meeting and Exhibition, including participants who plan to attend one or more sessions, are required to register. This includes presenters, invited speakers, chairs, and discussants. Registration is not transferable. You must be registered for the Annual Meeting in order to purchase tickets to attend courses and events.

AERA’s policy is that each paper must have one or more presenting authors and that all presenting authors must register for the Annual Meeting no later than the designated date, which was extended to March 15.  Individuals who are not listed as presenting authors cannot present at the Annual Meeting. If a presenting author did not register for the meeting by March 15, their name will be removed as a presenting author. If no presenting author for a session registered by March 15, the paper will be removed from the program.

AERA Member Rate

In order to qualify for the AERA registration member rate, your membership must be current through 2023. This means that if your membership expired in December 2022, you must renew your membership for 2023 prior to the time of registration in order to qualify for the member rate. Adjustments and/or refunds for registration fees will not be given to individuals who register at the non-member rate and later join AERA.

If you do not have 2023 AERA membership, consider obtaining it first by clicking Join/Renew AERA on the My AERA page to receive the deeply discounted member registration fee.

Vaccination Policy, Masking, and Tests

All attendees, except those with a medically documented condition or a personal attestation of religious reasons, must have up-to-date vaccination and at least one booster (if eligible). Mask wearing is strongly encouraged, but not required, in common areas. We expect attendees will be unmasked while eating or drinking. Mutual respect and health and safety remain priority goals. Prior to traveling to Chicago, we encourage attendees to self-test as a precaution.

UPDATE: In a special session on Monday, March 6, 2023, the AERA Executive Board modified the AERA vaccination policy with respect to medical and religious exemptions. Learn more
