Join AERA for the 2013 AERA Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California. The dates are Saturday, April 27 – Wednesday, May 1. The preconference events will take place on Friday, April 26. Keep in mind that this year’s Annual Meeting follows a Saturday-through-Wednesday pattern.
For the first time in 2013, the Award Ceremony and the Presidential Address will be held as separate events. The Awards Ceremony will be held as a featured luncheon event in a non-competitive time slot. The new Awards Luncheon will take place on Day 3 (Monday, April 29) from 12:25-2:25 PM. All attendees are encouraged to be present and honor the accomplishments of education researchers in the field. President William Tierney will preside at the luncheon.
Those wishing to attend can purchase lunch in advance on the registration form or can attend without any cost (bringing their own lunch if they wish). Attendees ordering lunch need to pre-register ($35 for regular members and $20 for student members) as part of their online registration.
The Early Bird deadline is March 15, 2013. Rates increase after March 15. View complete registration details, including general registration information, rates, and policies. Check out complete housing details as well for a list of hotels and rates, a map showing hotel locations, and information on ground transportation.
Registrants should keep in mind that meeting registration and housing reservation must be made at the same time. After the online meeting registration is completed, the registration summary includes a link for making online hotel reservation. AERA membership must be current through December 31, 2013, if registrants wish to receive the discounted AERA member rate. Membership can be renewed first online.
The primary site of the AERA Annual Meeting, where registration, exhibits, Presidential sessions, and AERA-wide sessions will be held, is the Hilton Union Square. The other headquarter hotels where sessions will be held are the Grand Hyatt, the Hotel Nikko, the Park 55, the Sir Francis Drake, and the Westin St. Francis. The Intercontinental San Francisco Hotel is the headquarter hotel for NCME. AERA will not be using the San Francisco Convention Center.
Go Green registrants will have available the online program. Also, the final printable program in PDF will be posted to the website well prior to the Annual Meeting. Registrants can download the mobile app free of charge and use that instead of a print program. Also, those who Go Green may choose to print or save pages of interest from the PDF version of the program online.
