Participation and Technical FAQ
There will be a few different formats at the SAA Online Meeting: live sessions (such as forums, lightning rounds, electronic symposia, and the Ethics Bowl) and prerecorded sessions (such as symposia and general sessions) where individuals can present papers, posters, and other work.
Individuals cannot opt out of being recorded in live sessions since live video cannot be edited; however, they could elect to turn their camera off. As a courtesy to the community, if possible, we would ask you to consider posting a photograph of yourself so viewers do not just see a blank box where your webcam would normally be.
Symposia organizers and general session chairs, and all their participants, have been asked to schedule a time to record their session in a "greenroom." If you have not heard from your symposium organizer or session chair, please contact them right away to confirm what time slot(s) they are considering. The hope is that having a technician on hand to help orchestrate the video recording will improve the consistency of the final recorded session. The presenter guide for “Symposium and general session participants” is available here.
Symposia and general sessions will be prerecorded and the videos released at the time on the program. During the scheduled session time, there will be a synchronous chat. Presenters are encouraged to attend during the scheduled session time; and presenters and audience members will be able to post questions and answers and and share information during the presentations in the chat. Symposium and general session rooms will be open for 30 minutes after the last presentation to support any spillover discussion and networking. The annual meeting materials will remain available for viewing until July 17, 2021. After the session concludes, we recommend viewers use e-mail or some other method of reaching presenters because the participants may not return to view the chat.
