SRMS Looks Ahead to JSM 2020 and 2021

1 July 2020 No Comment

The Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM)—taking place August 2–6—will be a virtual conference this year, and the Survey Research Methods Section (SRMS) has many sessions for you to attend from your home (or office).

Starting at 10 a.m. EDT, the technical program will extend over four days (there are a few events on Sunday, as well), including Thursday afternoon. SRMS has at least one invited session every day at 10 a.m. (10 total), 14 topic-contributed sessions, nine contributed sessions, four roundtables (free this year), and one poster session. The virtual program is available online.

Registration, featuring reduced rates, will remain open through the conference. Register today!

Time to Think About JSM 2021 Invited Sessions

While JSM 2020 hasn’t happened yet, it is not too early to organize your potential JSM 2021 invited session; proposals are due early in September.

Invited sessions include invited papers (2–6 presenters and/or discussants) and panels (3–6 panelists providing commentary about a topic). An invited session proposal includes a session title, general description of the session, list of participants, and tentative talk titles.

If you are interested in organizing an invited session, select a session topic and solicit potential speakers. Once you have a sufficient number of committed speakers, you can submit your proposal online from mid-July to early September.
