You can still register now for Ottawa 2022 and AMEE 2022. In-person or Online – one Conference or both - it’s up to you!

We would really like to see you in person at Ottawa 2022 and AMEE 2022 in Lyon in August, but if you would prefer to participate online we look forward to connecting with you virtually!

After 50 years of conferences, two of which were entirely virtual, we’re now ready for our first truly hybrid conferences – offering online participants the opportunity to engage with live streamed plenaries and symposia, and also dedicated sessions to present to the online audience in their own time zone and network with those attending in person.

Ottawa 2022 and AMEE 2022 are separate events but there’s a discount on the registration fee if you would like to attend both.
