Presenting Policy

Policy on Presenting at SSSR

  • The first author on a paper or poster to be the presenting author
  • Attendees to be the first/presenting author on one paper or poster only. Once an abstract has been submitted for review, the portal will close for any further submissions in the name of that first author.
    • The exception to this policy is the case of discussants in symposia; a discussant may submit a paper/proposal in addition to appearing as symposium discussant.
  • When the first/presenting author of a submission accepted for the conference cannot attend the meeting, s/he has the option of registering for the conference and allowing a coauthor to present the paper/poster in his/her stead. In this case, the program will reflect the name of the first author. If the first author does not register for the conference by May 1st the symposium/paper/poster will be removed from the program.
