ASPB is proud to have offered childcare at its annual meeting for many years. Plant Biology 2020 is no exception, with available onsite childcare at rates (see details below) partially supported by a grant from the Romanoff Foundation. ASPB feels strongly that childcare at conferences promotes equity for all attendees and will have wide-reaching benefits in the community as a whole.
Childcare at Plant Biology 2020 is available for $10/child/hour and will take place on site at the convention center, making it easy for parents to swing in between sessions or at lunch. All ages (up to 18 years) are accepted, but the most common ages fall in the 6 month–12 year range.
Attendees can provide the times/dates that childcare is needed during registration or at any time before the meeting. Questions regarding childcare can be sent to PBregistration@aspb.org.
