The Aerospace Medical Association’s 92nd  Annual Scientific Meeting 

will be held at the Peppermill Resort Hotel, Reno, NV, USA,

May 22 - 26, 2022

This year’s theme is “Scientia ex Machina           

The theme for this year’s Annual Scientific Meeting is “Scientia ex Machina” and its impact during the next 10 years.  Countless movies, books and stories have addressed the specter of a dystopic future due to the rise of autonomous computer/machine devices.  In the last decade, the real world has seen an explosion of information technology (IT) and artificial intelligence (AI) in ways that were unanticipated affecting how we develop and share information, and there is no indication this will abate during the next decade.  In short, we are becoming dependent on “knowledge from the machine!” So, our question is how this will affect AsMA’s mission to “apply and advance scientific knowledge to promote and enhance health, safety, and performance of those involved in aerospace and related activities?” We cannot predict where we will be in 2032.  But we can start asking questions about the impact of technology on the role of humans in aviation and space, the field of aerospace medicine, the meaning of human performance, and how this will alter the aerospace medicine community, practice, and research.
    The Annual Scientific Meeting is the premier international forum to learn and discuss evolving trends and multidisciplinary best practices in research, clinical applications, human performance, and flight safety. The 92nd Annual Scientific Meeting welcomes abstracts in the many areas related to Aerospace Medicine. 

Please refer to the Call for Abstracts for more information.


Joint meeting with the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine Society (UHMS)!

This year we will join forces with UHMS to hold a joint meeting. This is an opportunity to collaborate on abstracts and panels that appeal to both of our societies. Attendees will be encouraged to attend sessions of both organizations.


UHMS will provide us with the means to try displaying digital posters.  Please refer to the Poster Guidelines when creating your posters.
