NOTE: Registration for the Resuscitation Science Symposium (ReSS) is separate from AHA's Scientific Sessions. If you wish to register for Scientific Sessions, please visit the website.

You do NOT need to register for Scientific Sessions in order to attend or present at the Resuscitation Science Symposium.

If you would like to attend BOTH ReSS and Scientific Sessions, then you must register separately for both. If you are an American Heart Association member, and are primarily attending ReSS, once you register for ReSS, you will be sent a link with your confirmation to register for Scientific Sessions at no charge. If you do not wish to attend Sessions this is not mandatory. If you are NOT an AHA member and wish to attend both, you will need to register and pay for both.
