APS April Meeting


APS recently changed the system that manages logins, which is required for abstract submission. If you did not set up your account again in the new system after August 1, we recommend that you do so in advance of the abstract submission deadline. This will help you avoid any issues or delays when submitting your abstract.

Read about how to connect your old and new APS account
