SAS generally does not organize standalone conferences, workshops, or networking events. Instead, we focus on finding existing events worldwide and supporting them with organizational assistance, social media promotion, and funding. The Society currently has an official relationship with the following upcoming events regarding co-sponsorship, symposium organization, or an awards program. See the next page for events that we have sponsored in the last five years.
