The ACA's annual meeting is a unique opportunity to for students to submit an abstract and possibly present alongside veteran professionals in the field.  Including young scientists and students is important to the ACA and we encourage you to apply for our available travel grants and/or volunteer at the meeting to offset travel costs.  We are also proud to offer discounted room rates for students as well as discounted registration fees.
