Registration Requirement

It is the policy of AERA that all persons in attendance at the 2024 AERA Annual Meeting and Exhibition, including participants who plan to attend one or more sessions, are required to register. This includes presenters, invited speakers, chairs, and discussants. Registration is also required for those attending a business meeting on-site. Registration is not transferable. You must be registered for the Annual Meeting in order to purchase tickets to attend courses and events.

AERA’s policy is that each paper must have one or more presenting authors and that all presenting authors must register for the Annual Meeting no later than March 14.  Individuals who are not listed as presenting authors cannot present at the Annual Meeting. If a presenting author did not register for the meeting by March 14, their name will be removed as a presenting author. If no presenting author for a paper registered by March 14, the paper will be removed from the program.

AERA Member Rate

Adjustments and/or refunds for registration fees will not be given to individuals who register at the non-member rate and later join AERA.
