Plenary Session
  • Beware of Fraudulent Vendors


    IMPORTANT NOTICE: Many companies may claim to be associated with ATS and the International Conference. However, only CDS (for registration) and Experient (for housing) are officially authorized ATS agents. DO NOT REGISTER FOR THE CONFERENCE OR BOOK YOUR HOTEL ROOMS WITH OTHER OPERATORS. ATS does not accept responsibility for any losses that result from registering or booking hotel rooms via unofficial vendors or websites.

  • Important notice for international attendees

    The U.S. government recently experienced a partial shutdown but has reopened. Visa processing delays are likely, resulting from both the backlog of visa applications submitted during the shutdown, as well as ongoing uncertainty until the government reopens permanently. It is important that attendees traveling from countries that require a visa to enter the US submit visa applications as soon as possible, to account for these delays. At that time, should you encounter problems, please contact Chris Hughes, Associate Director, Global Health at the ATS (, for assistance. When emailing, please include the words “Visa Issues” in the subject line of your email.
