AAPT 2020 Summer Meeting in Grand Rapids Changed to Virtual Meeting
The health and well-being of AAPT members and staff, as well as the Grand Rapids community, is our top priority. As a result, we will be offering the AAPT 2020 Summer Meeting, currently scheduled for July 18-22, 2020, as a virtual meeting. Our national conferences provide many rich opportunities to develop community and engage and learn from one another - we are committed to providing a space to do this, online, this summer. We have made arrangements with the hotel and convention center to be back in person, in Grand Rapids, for Summer 2022.

Hopefully, it will be free to register, like the recent APS Virtual April Meeting.
In that APS meeting, you had to register to view the presentations, whether live or pre-recorded.
Registrants could also watch a recording of a live session.
During live presentations, attendees had the opportunity to ask questions by typing in the chat window.
(It wasn't clear if the speaker could see the chat window during the presentation... maybe only the session organizer.
The window is certainly consulted during the Q&A period.)

So, if you haven't been to an AAPT meeting, this might be a good opportunity to see what it's about.
Post-deadline abstracts are due by April 30.
Although I've been a fairly regular attendee and presenter, I haven't been to a meeting in two years...
and I wasn't planning on going to the meeting this summer.
I'm now thinking about possibly contributing an abstract.
