Specialized Conferences

Specialized Conferences feature a portfolio of smaller, meaningful, and sustainable new meeting opportunities that complement our historic Annual Meeting.

Several conference models allow members and participants to connect and engage throughout the year, virtually and in varied locations, that are reflective of the geographic dispersion of our international membership. In addition to these conferences, new ideas that reflect the creative energy of our membership are expected to emerge, as the AOM experiments with new program structures, delivery modes, content features, and conference designs, including webinars and virtual conferences.

AOM is no longer accepting applications for Specialized Conferences.  The AOM Specialized Conference Initiative (SCI) was sunset in August 2022.

This conference also served to foster the development of research from Latin American scholars and institutions.
