AERA Virtual Conference Center—An Unique Opportunity

***Click here for attendee and presenter instructions and information***

The 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting will be held on an interactive, dynamic, and user-friendly platform that provides a highly engaging, inclusive, and safe virtual environment and experience for all attendees. AERA envisions the Virtual Conference Center as an all-day destination, from attending individual sessions and meeting with others virtually one-on-one to joining colleagues for virtual end-of-day receptions.The AERA Virtual Conference Center:

  • Is intuitive to navigate
    • Has a map with pins labeled for all of the locations on the platform including the Exhibit Hall, the On Demand Library, the Networking Opportunities Space, among other favorite spots
    • Displays the full searchable program
    • Enables attendees to get to any scheduled event directly from the general schedule or from their personalized schedule
  • Offers plenty of opportunities for engagement
    • Supports live text or video chat
    • Allows attendees to invite others to annual meeting sessions or join social networking events or informal gatherings

All annual meeting sessions except poster sessions will be recorded and made accessible approximately 36 hours after a session concludes in the On Demand Library for viewing by meeting registrants. Meeting registrants can view all recorded sessions within the On Demand Library for one year after the conclusion of the annual meeting.

On April 2, AERA will open the Virtual Conference Center to registered attendees. Registered attendees will receive unique login credentials on April 2, including a username, password, and the URL to access the platform. While many of the features of the platform will not be available until the meeting goes live, registrants will have a chance to explore the virtual environment before the conference begins on April 8. The platform is entirely web-based so there is no need to download software or an app in advance.
