Participant Information for ISA 2016

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

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

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.

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 March 7th (February 1st for JSS papers) to give your discussant time to read your work. You'll find the upload form on your schedule page.

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.
