About a month before each Annual Meeting, seminar leaders submit abstracts for posting on this page. Abstracts are posted on this page throughout the duration of the conference and then moved to the SAA Archives page at the after the meeting. Abstracts, like papers and other conference projects, should be treated with respect. The posting of abstracts represents a claim of intellectual property. Acknowledgment of another participant’s work is incumbent upon its user, whether or not the work has subsequently been published in print or on other online forums. To quote from an abstract, cite it, or borrow from it, its author’s permission must be secured.
Abstracts for the 2016 Annual Meeting will be posted as they are received in the weeks leading up to the meeting.
