RSA Bi-Annual Conference

RSA22 Conference Registration is now open! Please remember, it is expected that all participants will register for the conference mode they chose at the time of their initial paper or panel submission (i.e., in-person participants must be registered for the in-person mode and virtual participants must be registered for the virtual mode). This is because of the costs associated with planning for both modes. If you cannot remember your choice, please contact Leslie Dinauer at dinauer.rsa@gmail.com.

It is possible to attend in-person and present virtually if you initially made a virtual submission. Please see "What if I chose to present virtually at the time of submission but by May 2022 I decide I want to come to the conference?" at the bottom of this page.

IN-PERSON: Register HERE for the in-person conference.
VIRTUAL: Register HERE for the virtual conference.

Please note: If you are not an RSA member, you will be asked to "make an account" as part of the conference registration process; this is not a membership. You will be given an opportunity to become a member, if you choose, later during the registration process.

Can I change my mode of presentation?
 
No. At this time, you may not change your mode of presentation. Both the virtual and the in-person programs are set, except for minor corrections. The logistics that would be required to allow participants to switch presentation modes are expensive and unmanageable for RSA's small staff.
 
But one of our panelists can no longer come to the in-person conference. Can one of the members of our panel session "Zoom in"?
 
We think so! We have worked with our A/V provider to 1.) buy all of the bandwidth they can possibly give us, and 2.) ensure that we can get in-house audio to work in all of the rooms so you can hear someone you might project on the screen. The panel folks in Baltimore should be sure to bring a laptop and an HDMI connector (not the old school 15-pin video connection). You'll need to mute the input microphone on the laptop when the presenter is speaking to avoid feedback.
 
We may need to partition the bandwidth to dedicate a certain amount just to folks who are trying to Zoom others in. This would require a password to access additional bandwidth. Stay tuned for more information on that.
 
We are doing all of this for the first time, making mistakes and learning as we go.  We appreciate your patience, understanding, and good humor.
 

Can you explain the cost of virtual registration?

Yes. Although it seems as if a virtual platform should cost very little, the virtual platform (provided by OpenWater) is actually relatively expensive; even at the current level of fees, the cost of registration for virtual participants will not cover the expense of the platform. Still, it is important to us to have a virtual option, both now and in the future, for individuals who are unable to attend the conference in person. We are continuing to work on the program to make the virtual offerings robust and engaging; the draft virtual program should be available early in 2022.

What if I chose to present virtually at the time of submission but by May 2022 I decide I want to come to the conference?

If you were accepted and registered for the virtual presentation mode, and you decide later that you wish to come to Baltimore and attend in-person conference events (e.g., in-person sessions, receptions, keynotes, coffee hours, awards ceremony, the Exhibit Hall, etc.), you may pay the difference for your on-time registration at the onsite registration station ($50 for regular members and $25 for graduate student members).  This will entitle you to a badge that will give you access to the conference events; however, you will still need to deliver your presentation virtually in order to keep your commitment to your colleagues.
