98th Annual Conference | July 2-6, 2023, in San Diego, California

This conference platform will be the hub of activity for program participants, so we suggest you bookmark this site for future reference. Abstracts for both volunteer and organized sessions will be submitted here for review before being placed on the program. Participants will return here to view the program, upload complete papers and slides, and for those participating virtually, to attend and participate in virtual concurrent sessions on July 1. We will email you when major updates occur and send reminders of important dates, but it's good to check back here often if your inbox too suffers from overcrowding. Anytime you have questions, we're here to help -- sessions@weai.org.

COVID Protocols

Safety is our first priority when convening a WEAI conference. Our expectation is that all participants attending the conference in-person will be fully vaccinated and boosted. We will regularly monitor the COVID protocols in San Diego and will follow any guidelines in place at the time of the meetings.
