Final 2023 Annual Meeting Dates Announced—Registration Fees Remain Unchanged
Final 2023 Annual Meeting Dates Announced—Registration Fees Remain Unchanged

June 2022

AERA has announced the final dates for the 2023 dual-component Annual Meeting. The place-based component will be held in Chicago from Thursday, April 13, through Sunday, April 16. The virtual component will be held on an online platform on Thursday, May 4, and Friday, May 5.

The 2023 Annual Meeting is the association’s first meeting planned from the beginning as a dual-component meeting, after the 2022 meeting was re-engineered to a hybrid model in October 2021 due to the rapid emergence of the Delta COVID variant.

At the AERA Council meeting on June 17, 2022, members voted to temporally separate the place-based and online components of the 2023 meeting to maximize opportunities to present or attend either component or both, without a protracted single convening.

“AERA Council and staff are appreciative of the multiple demands on scholars’ time, as well as of meeting fatigue, whether in person or online,” said AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine. “The ‘take a break’ approach provides not just a choice but an opportunity to potentially be a part of both meeting components.”

Registration rates for 2023 will not change from the place-based fees that have held steady since the 2018 Annual Meeting in New York. Those attending or presenting only on the virtual platform will enjoy the low fees offered since the first virtual annual meeting in 2021. Place-based registrants pay a higher fee, but they will be able to attend the online component at no additional cost.

In advancing these announcements, Levine emphasized the priority being placed on graduate students and early career scholars.

“Stay tuned for forthcoming announcements about additional assistance and discounts to help those with financial challenges participate rather than opt out,” said Levine.

As one cost-reduction measure for attendees, AERA will introduce for 2023 the long-awaited four-day annual meeting, which was to commence in 2020 before that year’s meeting was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
