Submission Deadline: June 1, 2020

While submissions are strongly encouraged by June 1, 2020, we realize that the disruptions caused by COVID-19 may make this deadline challenging for many. As such, we will continue to consider submissions on a rolling basis until August 1, or until the conference schedule is fully populated. Our review process will provide participants with notification within a month of submission.

In light of COVID-19 disruptions, the 2020 SLSA conference will provide a “blended experience” style conference and member poster exhibition, with opportunities for both on-site and virtual participation. So, if you’d like to be part of SLSA2020 and cannot make it to Ann Arbor for various reasons, we will work to accommodate you to present virtually and be part of our community with your blended presence.
