Meeting Services

Affiliated Group Space Request
AERA welcomes the opportunity to work with individuals and groups that would like to host a function during the 2013 AERA Annual Meeting. To request function space at one of the AERA meeting venues, please complete an affiliated group space request.

AERA Journal Talks
AERA Journal Talks are informal sessions designed to facilitate journal editors' communication on a one-to-one basis with reviewers, authors, and potential authors. Each journal is included in one Journal Talks session, and journals participating in a session are assigned a numbered table. This information is printed in the final conference program. There are no restrictions placed on the number of journal representatives that may occupy an assigned table.

If you wish to participate in the 2013 AERA Journal Talks, please enter your Journal Talks request online as soon as possible for best availability as space is limited. This service is first-come, first-served, and entering a request does not guarantee acceptance, though AERA will do everything possible to accommodate all requests.

For questions or further information, please contact the Publications Department at pubs@aera.net or at 202.238.3236. Registrations are not accepted via phone or email.
