Participant Information for ISA 2017

We're delighted to release a short video, filmed onsite at ISA 2016. See why ISA members and participants are excited about the ISA Annual Convention, and what they're looking forward to in February. The Program Chair and Section Program Chairs have been working hard to craft a stimulating program and we're looking forward to seeing you!

Here are the most important things to make sure you have done:

Confirm Your Participation!!!

To secure your place on the final program, you must complete your paid registration for the convention by October 19, 2016. You can register easily on our website. You will be removed from the program if you don't register by October 19, 2016. Note that ISA members receive discounts and there is an additional automatic $20.00 discount for registrations made through our website.

Book Your Hotel

Our hotels fill up quickly. As soon as you register, you can check your schedule and see what rooms/hotels your panels are in, and use that information to reserve a room close to your sessions. You can see the latest updates on our travel page.

Browse the Program

ISA has a great new online program (requires login) that lets you search by person, title, sponsor, and even keywords! You can use this to build a personalized schedule that you can download as a PDF to have handy when you're at the convention

Touch Base with Your Panel

You can look up the email address of participants on your panels when viewing a panel's details in our online program (show me how!). If you will be helping run a panel, you can learn about being a chair or discussant at ISA.

Get to Know Baltimore

Baltimore Visitors Bureau has put together a special page with information about the city, events, restaurants and more!

Upload Your Paper(s)

ISA policy requires a digital version of presented papers to be uploaded no later than five business days before the conference, but, we ask that you try to have a PDF uploaded no later February 13th (January 20th for JSS papers) to give your discussant time to read your work. You'll find the upload form on your schedule page.
