Key Knowledge

The 2019 APDIM Fall Meeting offers five plenary sessions and four workshop sessions so it’s easy to mix large and small group learning, to create your own "learning track" based on interest or needs, or to learn from high-profile speakers and from the colleagues who know your pain.

Precourses offer targeted, small group learning on hot topics. These boot camp-style, day long sessions are usually limited to 50 to 80 people and led by real world experts: faculty and staff who learned the lessons the hard way—by trying, modifying, and rebuilding—so that you can learn from their successes and their failures.

There are so many learning opportunities that no one can attend them all! That's why the Alliance makes the slide sets from as many plenaries and workshops as possible available to participants. Use them to share your newly acquired knowledge with others at your home institution or take a look and reach out to a speaker whose session you missed but whose work you want to learn more about.

Essential Networks

But learning doesn't only take place in the "classroom." Some of the most important interactions happen between sessions, in the hallways, at networking events, and at poster receptions. Find people like you—doing the same job, working in similar types of institutions, or struggling with the same kind of challenges—to build key networks that help you continue to learn and grow well after you leave Denver!

Value for the Fee

AAIM provides participants with breakfast and lunch daily for each day of the conference, including precourses. The Sheraton Denver Downtown offers a great conference rate and Denver is an easy flight from all major airline hubs.
