51st Annual Conference Registration is Now Open!

The AAS Annual Conference is a chance for students to present their research, learn about recent research in the field, receive invaluable skills training, hear presentations of interest to students, and network with world-renowned researchers and clinicians.  The 51st AAS Annual Conference will be held April 18-21, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.

There are many student specific opportunities to be had at the Annual Conference including student poster sessions and the Early Career Networking Mixer. Students can also take advantage of our great lower registration rates for students as well as apply for travel scholarships to help offset the cost of Annual Conference attendance (Please see the registraiton brochure for full details and deadlines).

Our 50th Annual Conference held April 27-29, 2017 in Phoenix, AZ was a tremendous success! Each year, two student awards are given at the annual conference.  The first, the Morton M. Silverman Student Award, recognizes an outstanding paper written by a student on a topic directly related to the field of suicidology.  Congratulations to the winner of the Silverman Student Award for 2017, Claire Houstma, B.A.

The second award given is the Student Poster Award, which recognizes an excellent student-authored poster presented at the conference.  There is no specific application for this award.  All posters that are accepted for presentation are judged during the poster session at the conference.  Poster are eligible for this award if a student is listed as the first author.  Congratulations to the 2017 winners of the Student Poster Award, Michael M. McClay and Marilyn Piccirillo.
