covid policies


As of March 7, 2022, New York City has suspended its vaccination requirements for indoor activities. So as of today, there are no vaccination requirements or mask requirements at the Sheraton NY Times Square Hotel, the site of the conference. Please check here for any updates on COVID-19 policies at this venue. 


If you are unable to attend a conference due to a government restriction that prevents you from attending, you are eligible for a full refund. For example, if you live in Canada and, at the time of the conference, non-essential travel to the United States is banned, you would be eligibile for a full refund.

If you are legally able to attend a conference and decide to cancel due to COVID-19, our normal refund policies with cancellation fees would apply.  However, you can choose to rollover your registration fee to a future Learning & the Brain conference without any penalties.

You can switch between virtual participation or in-person participation at any time.  All participants, regardless of whether they are participating virtually or in-person will have access to the recordings of the conference for up to 1-month after the conference.

If Learning & the Brain is forced to cancel a conference due to COVID-19 legal restrictions, you will also be eligible for a full refund.
