When we last communicated in April, we said we were hoping for an in-person NERA 2020. We have, however, since decided that budgets, liability concerns, travel comfort, and precedents set by other 2020 conferences all point us to a virtual option for NERA this year. We look forward to hosting an engaging virtual experience for this year’s NERA and look forward to your participation.
We anticipate a pared-down program taking place over two days during the dates of October 14-16th. We have several invited speakers, workshops, and panels already confirmed. The speaker list may be found here, and we will continue to update that page as we identify new speakers. In addition to our invited speakers, we will be accepting coordinated sessions from our members.
Given the novel structure of the 2020 conference, we are seeking to only accept a limited number of coordinated sessions. A session submission is a fully planned session, involving multiple presentations or participants and a moderator. We welcome session submissions from new and experienced researchers and will consider all session formats (e.g., workshops, symposia, roundtables). Session submissions meeting one or more of the following criteria below will be prioritized:
The NERA 2020 session submission form is now available! We look forward to reading your session submissions! Session submissions will be accepted from June 8th, 2020 through June 22nd, 2020 (11:59 PM EST).
If you have any issues or questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
