The Center for Digital Antiquity will provide a space in tDAR where presentations, papers, and other data for each electronic symposium accepted as part of the 2019 Annual Meeting can be uploaded and accessed.  Each symposium chair or coordinator should contact the Center to create a space (a tDAR “collection”) for their symposium as well as vouchers for authors to upload their digital material.  Authors, or the session coordinator can then upload those files to tDAR where they can be reviewed by attendees. Once the annual meeting has been completed, these collections will be integrated into tDAR's archive of SAA Annual Meeting abstracts and presentations.  Contacts at Digital Antiquity are Rachel Fernandez ( or Frank McManamon (
