Registration for the 2022 DAMOP meeting is open!  You may choose to register as either an in-person or a remote participant. The 2022 DAMOP meeting in Orlando, Florida from May 30 through June 4, 2022 will take on a hybrid format – different in structure from either a fully in-person meeting or the remote meetings of the past two years. Our hope is that the hybrid format will expand the reach of the DAMOP meeting while bringing back the strengths of the in-person meeting.   Please take time to familiarize yourself with the structure of the hybrid meeting as you register and plan for your presentations. Invited & Focus Sessions will be live-streamed ...

We continue to plan for DAMOP 2022 (May 30 – June 3, 2022).  No matter what format (in person, virtual, or hybrid) the 2022 meeting takes, an essential component is an exceptional set of invited and focus sessions.  We need your input to create a great meeting. Please propose invited or focus sessions using the online form . Nominations are due by Monday, November 1, 2021, after which the program committee will start its deliberations.  The success of our meeting depends on the quality of these nominations. Thank you!
