Annual Convention


Important Reminders for #ISA2019 Participants

We are looking forward to seeing you at the ISA 2019 Annual Convention in Toronto! Here's some information to help you prepare for your role(s) as a chair, discussant, or panelist.

For Chairs

If you are chairing a panel at the meeting, we ask that you email the panel participants with set time limits for paper presentations within the next week, if you have not already done so. ISA HQ recommends leaving at least 30 minutes at the end for questions and answers from the audience. At the Annual Convention, the chair's role is to briefly introduce the panel/roundtable to the audience, manage the time limits for presentation, and facilitate participation with the audience.

For Discussants

The role of the discussant is to carefully read each of the papers that he/she receives prior to the Convention and comment upon these papers in a constructive manner during the panel session. If a panelist does not submit their paper in advance, discussants are not obligated to comment on the paper at the panel session. (Please note, roundtable participants do not upload papers.)

For all Participants

We have put together a page containing important information and deadlines for the Toronto 2019 convention. There you will find information on how to upload your paper, get in touch with your panel, prepare for your presentation and much more!
