On March 3-5, we will be returning to an in-person conference with the 93rd Meeting of the EPA at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. We fully expect the 2022 conference will take place in an environment that is clean, safe and comfortable.
Important: Proof of COVID Vaccination will be required to enter the EPA conference. Proof of Covid vaccination is required also in all NYC restaurants (indoors), including Marriott Marquis restaurants and bars. To view NYC guidance on proof of vaccination and guidelines click here.
The Marriott Marquis adheres to the highest standards of cleanliness and follows CDC guidelines of health and safety. Learn about Marriott's "Commitment to Clean" here. Moreover, during the past two years, we learned that masks are an effective and simple tool to control the flu and the common cold, as well as COVID-19. Therefore, masks will be welcome at our meeting. For any additional questions about our health and safety plan for the 2022 meeting, direct your inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The submissions portal is open
Please remember that only Members, Fellows, and Associates with an expiration date of May 31, 2022, may submit proposals for the meeting. The submission deadline is November 15, 2021. If you are planning to submit a proposal, please do not wait until the last moment to pay dues, as payments may take up to 48 hours to process. All associates must have a faculty sponsor who, at the time of the submission, is a current EPA Member with dues paid for the current year (exp. 5/31/2022).
As in recent years, another call for proposals for a special undergraduate poster session will be issued later, with a December 1, 2021 deadline.
