Registration and abstract submission

To register for the meeting please do the following:

  1. Register and pay here for the meeting (2 day or one day) and the dinner (Note: your payment is your registration so please ensure you include your e-mail address on the PayPal form). If you would like to present on the AMS only day (July 5th) upload your abstract below.

  2. If you have registered for 2 days, in addition to your registration via AMS you will also need to register for “no-charge” on the ASM website at (this is so your formal attendance for Wednesday is noted by the ASM for catering purposes).

    • Once in the ASM registration site either login to your Currinda profile or create a Currinda profile if necessary.

    • Register for no charge by clicking  “AMS Members Wednesday Single Day”. (Note: there is a slight glitch on the ASM site that means you have to tick that you are an AMS member, whether you are or not, in order to register for free)

    • If you wish to attend the ASM Eukaryotic SIG workshop of the Wednesday afternoon also tick that box (this is also free with your AMS registration).

    • Once your registration is complete you will receive a confirmation email from ASM.

    • If you wish to submit an abstract for the AMS meeting meeting you should upload your abstract via your Currinda profile site by clicking on the “Abstracts” tab at the top of the page. Please note that there are no poster sessions on July 4th and probably only very limited spots for proffered oral papers, hence if you are planning to attend only on July 4th-5th we recommend submitting your abstract via AMS.
