Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. You may be listed on multiple submissions as a co-author. You may only be listed as a first author/speaker/presenter/chair/co-chair on one single presenter submission, one symposium submission, and one professional development submission.
Yes, as long as the two roles are in the same symposium, you can be a chair and presenter/speaker.
No, an individual can only have a main role in one symposium.
No, an individual can only be the first/presenting author on one single presenter submission.
No, a maximum of two submissions can be accepted: one science (single presenter or symposium) submission and one professional development (PD session or Workshop) submission. If the review panels select both science submissions, the single presenter submission will be declined and the symposium will be included in the program.
No, an individual can only have one leading role (first presenting author or presenter/speaker, chair, or co-chair in one symposium). See above for more information about being listed on multiple submissions as a co-author.
No, there is no longer an option to indicate this within the symposium submission. However, because we allow one symposium submission AND one single presenter submission, the individual presenters have the option to also submit their presentation separately as a single presenter submission. An individual can only present once as a main presenting author in the Science submissions, and if the group submission is accepted, the single presenter submission will be declined. The "Plan b" option still exists; it just requires that the talk is submitted separately as a single presenter submission. This also allows for the option to submit a different talk for consideration than the one submitted in the group submission.
Yes, since preconferences are separate from the actual convention, your participation as a speaker or poster presenter in a preconference does not preclude you from participating in the convention.
Notifications will be sent out in late September from email@example.com, be sure to check spam and junk folders. Undergraduate poster submission notifications will be sent out in late October.
There are two types of programs for the SPSP convention in 2023:
- All access: Includes access to all in-person programs being held in Atlanta and all virtual programming. We anticipate approximately 100 sessions to run in-person in Atlanta. Attendees can also participate in numerous in-person social and networking events.
- Virtual only: Virtual offerings include two simultaneous channels of programs live-streamed from Atlanta (approximately 17 sessions). We will also have several virtual pre-conferences and virtual professional development workshops. For presenters unable to travel to Atlanta, they should submit their presentation for the virtual program which will be available for on-demand viewing.
You will be asked to choose a specific presentation format (in-person or virtual). You will not be able to make changes to your presentation format after acceptances are sent in September although you may withdraw your submission if you so choose.
The in-person program will transition to be fully virtual. The way the program has been created, will enable us to make this adjustment by transitioning all in-person presentations to Zoom meetings.
