What's new at the 2024 Annual Meeting?
New in 2024, poster sessions will be held only in the place-based component of the Annual Meeting. All submitters—for both poster sessions and structured poster sessions—will display their work on video monitors and create their poster presentations through the AERA i-Presentation Gallery.

Also new for 2024, e-Lightening Ed-Talks will be a special feature of the AERA program throughout the place-based component. At the time of submission, authors who submitted a paper for a poster session could indicate interest in also presenting it in the form of a brief e-Lightening Ed-Talk. Authors of papers accepted for Ed-Talks will receive guidance on the preparation of such talks.
