- Washington, D.C.
The 2014 Joint Annual Meeting is our largest conference ever! With more than 2,300 individuals preregistered, you’ll have the chance to interact with even more people and ideas than usual.
But it also means that session rooms will be very full; registration, restroom, and hotel restaurant lines will be long; and the All-Attendee Reception at the Library of Congress Great Hall will be crowded.
Conference management is taking steps to help manage these exceptional numbers. Here are some tips you can use to manage the crowds:
We appreciate your patience—and encourage you to take the opportunity to “rub elbows” (maybe literally!) with your colleagues!
The Library of Congress requires that all visitors pass through a screening process that is akin to TSA screening (except that you can keep your shoes on). Please do not bring any unnecessary bags to the reception and be prepared to remove all metal objects and place them in a tray. If you have a pocket knife or similar tool, you will not be allowed to bring it into the building. Please leave it in your room.
