About a month before each Annual Meeting, seminar leaders submit abstracts for posting on this page. Abstracts are available throughout the duration of the conference and are moved to the SAA Archives page after the conference.
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’s work is incumbent upon its user, whether or not the work has subsequently been published in print or on other online forums. An author’s permission must be secured before his or her abstract may be quoted from or borrowed from.
