October 1997 AAOS Report
Register on-line for Annual Meeting
On-line advance registration for the 1998 Annual Meeting will
be available on the home page. Only Academy members can access
this service using their Academy ID number. Individuals can register,
select instructional courses and special events and register for
Specialty Day meetings with a credit card-Visa, Mastercard or
American Express; the Academy will mail a receipt confirming registration
within 10 days. The home page will have "Make Your Own Schedule"
where individuals can enter meetings, courses and social events
that they plan to attend during the meeting. After selecting events,
a customized daily schedule can be printed out for personal use.
The Academy also plans to include an on-line password-protected
"Colleague Locator" for attendees to locate associates
who have registered for the meeting.
Listings of instructional courses and lecture demonstration courses
currently are posted on the home page, and include detailed course
descriptions, faculty, time and location. Abstracts of scientific
paper presentations and poster and scientific exhibits will be
made available by the Academy in the coming months. All new items
are located in the "1998 Annual Meeting" section of
the home page at http://www.aaos.org.
