We are all hungry to gather and share ideas and connect with colleagues and friends. Engagement has always been central to the quality and vitality of ARCC and EAAE conferences. In that spirit, ARCC-EAAE 2022 is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all attendees.  To ensure the safest event possible, ARCC-EAAE 2022 is requesting all attendees provide “proof of vaccination and booster shot, if eligible”.

ARCC-EAAE 2022 has been deliberately planned during FIU’s spring break, when the campus population diminishes significantly. Many conference activities will take place outdoors. Paper sessions will adhere to social distancing guidelines. While every measure will be taken to reduce the potential spread of Covid-19, the responsibility for a safe and healthy event environment is shared among all conference participants. To this end, all attendees are strongly encouraged to implement CDC recommendations (click here).
