WASHINGTON, D.C., March 9, 2020—The American Educational Research Association has announced it will not hold a place-based Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA, in April 2020 due to the coronavirus. Instead, AERA is shifting to a virtual meeting.

“Although an in-person AERA Annual Meeting will not take place in 2020, it is our goal to reimage the opportunities of a virtual meeting that honors our professional responsibility to share significant research for the public good,” wrote Levine and Walker. “Our goal is to make this a high quality alternative professional experience, both for our members as well as for those interested in educational problems in the U.S. and world. And, we plan to open on April 17, 2020—the originally planned opening day for AERA.”


Each year, the American Educational Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting is the world’s largest gathering of education researchers and a showcase for groundbreaking, innovative studies in an array of areas. The event was due to be held at the Moscone CenterApril 17-21, 2020, for five rewarding days of ideas, engagement, networking, and professional advancement.
