Each fall since 1950, the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science has held its annual National Meeting. During the five days of the meeting, members and nonmembers come together to enjoy the workshops, lectures, poster sessions, and exhibits. The program is designed to have topics relevant to the entire membership. Exhibitors have an opportunity to interact with AALAS members from the academic community, research institutions, government organizations, and commercial companies. The AALAS National Meeting is the largest gathering in the world of professionals concerned with the production, care, and use of laboratory animals. 

The meeting will be held at the Austin Convention Center located at 500 E. Cesar Chavez Street, Austin, TX 78701, U.S.

AALAS is working with the Austin Visitors Bureau to secure additional hotel rooms, but several events coincide with our National Meeting. Any available rooms are automatically added to our block. Please check the housing site often. Attendees may also choose to use hotel points, book directly with a hotel, or select airline/hotel combination packages.
