Preliminary Academic Program

AIA Session
AIA Session

The 2020 Annual Meeting will be held in Washington, D.C. from January 2-5. The Preliminary Academic Program as it is presented here is tentative and subject to change. Sessions are grouped within morning, midday, and afternoon blocks.  Paper order within a session may not reflect the final time slots. Final schedule times will be reflected in the AIA Program distributed on-site at the Annual Meeting, posted on the AIA website at a later date, and in the dedicated meeting app. The dedicated meeting app allows attendees to interact with both organizations’ programs and easily create custom schedules. It is available for all iOS and Android devices and has a basic web version.
