Each year, the SWARM Division of AAAS holds annual meetings for interested persons, its affiliated societies in the SWARM geographic region as well as its 14,000 members. These meetings are composed of contributed paper sessions and symposia, field trips, public lectures, social events, and student presentations. Traditionally, the meeting is held in March or April. These meetings present a rare opportunity for scientists and students from a wide variety of disciplines to interact and hear presentations on topics they may not traditionally have access to.

Disciplinary Sections encouraged to participate in the meetings are: Biological Sciences, Biomedical Sciences, Environmental Sciences, Physical Sciences and Engineering, Psychological Sciences, Science Education and Social Sciences.

A Call for Papers e-mail announcement will be sent to all AAAS members in the SWARM Division and registration information will be found on this web-site during the Fall.

Although the privilege of attending the SWARM Annual Meeting and presenting a paper or poster is not restricted to AAAS members, it is strongly encouraged that prospective participants join AAAS to take full advantage of the many benefits of membership.
