Participation and Technical FAQ
You have the option to replace participants who withdraw. General sessions and general poster sessions cannot replace participants. Please keep in mind that all program participants must submit their abstract and keywords and complete register for the SAA 86th Annual Meeting Online between January 18 and January 28 at 3:00 pm Eastern (so they can be reviewed). In addition, all program participants must be an active SAA member by January 30, 2021.
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.
