    The AAPT Winter Meeting in Atlanta ( https://www.aapt.org/Conferences/wm2017/ ) is going on now.
    Unfortunately, this meeting was scheduled for now [in the middle of the semester], rather than its usual time in January [during my break]. So, I wasn't able to make it.

    However, the website for the Summer Meeting in Cincinnati has been live.
    Abstract submissions are due on Thursday, Feb 23 (in a few days).
    I'm working on an abstract now... and I plan to attend.
    Registration will likely open up in May.


    (Immediately after the 2017 AAPT Summer Meeting in Cincinnati OH,
    the 2017 MAA MathFest begins in Chicago (July 26-29, 2017) http://www.maa.org/meetings/mathfest-2017 .
    Abstracts are due April 30.
    It's a 5-hour drive from from Cincinnati to Chicago.)

    The nonmember-registration fee seems to about $200 more than the member-registration fee. And they probably won't decrease.

    The price of joining AAPT for a year is about $160, which includes online access to some journals. (Student meeting registration and student membership are much cheaper.)

    So, by joining, that's a small discount for one meeting, and a larger one for two meetings.

    For me, Cincinnati is drivable (as opposed the previous meetings in New Orleans or Orlando or Sacramento). So, i'd save on the cost of air fare and a car rental.

    (I think there is a rather small meeting registration fee for a non-physics spouse.)
