Presenters Must Register for the Conference

2018 ONLINE APPLICATION FORM

ARARA invites proposals for presentations at the 2018 Conference. Presenters do not have to be ARARA members to present, but current ARARA members whose papers are accepted will be given preference. Presenters must register for the conference by the pre-registration deadline.

Students: ARARA encourages student participation, whether as presenters or attendees. All students receive free Registration for ARARA Conferences. Student presenters may be eligible for additional benefits. Please indicate on the application form which of the authors are students, so that the Education Committee can contact you.

Applications must designate presentations as follows
  • Paper: 13 minutes of presentation, 5 minutes of questions (presenters may forego the question period to allow additional presentation time). Total 18 minutes.
  • Report: 8 minutes of presentation, no time for questions. Total 8 minutes.
  • Poster: Displays set up in the conference area, with scheduled times for presenters to be available for contact with viewers.

English is the preferred language for presentations. If your presentation is in another language, you are expected to provide handouts with a translation or summary of your paper in English. ARARA does not provide interpreter services, or pay for the printing of handouts.

All Conference papers and reports must be standard PowerPoint presentations (.ppt or .pptx format). Other digital formats and color slide projection are not supported.

Abstract Submission Instructions:

Complete the form online; it cannot be downloaded to your computer. When you click "SUBMIT," the website will automatically 1) send your application to the Program Chair, and 2) send a copy of your submission to the e-mail address entered on the form.

If you want to print the filled-out application from your browser in addition to having the application e-mailed to you, print the screen before clicking "SUBMIT"—the submit buttom clears the form.

The Program Review Committee will examine applications, and the Program Chair will notify applicants of the Committee's decision as soon as possible.

In order to accommodate as many presentations as possible during our limited conference time, ARARA reserves the option of requesting that a Paper be changed to a Report or Poster.

IF YOU NEED AN EARLY DECISION FOR FUNDING PURPOSES OR TRAVEL PERMISSION, contact the Program Chair as soon as possible.

Deadline for submission is February 1, 2018. To apply, complete the fillable form directly on the ARARA website at
