Our aim is to facilitate an inclusive Symposium that encourages the free exchange of ideas and welcomes all voices in a respectful atmosphere. We invite participation from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, religions, nationalities, ages, sexual orientations and abilities.
As organisers, we are working to try to provide a balanced and diverse program. You can help us build a better, more inclusive AANSS by forwarding our Call for Abstracts throughout your network, and by sending along your suggestions for presenters and participants that might help to diversify the Meeting.
For AANSS2018, we have clear goals for gender diversity with the aim of having 50% of oral presentations made by women. In order to facilitate accurate reporting, we will be asking the gender of registrants. Registrants are free to decline to answer this question. We will report our statistics when available.
