What’s Happening Now

Abstract submission deadline extended for one more week from April 30, 2020 to May 8, 2020.

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to impact our lives, we know that our members are dealing with multiple, unexpected demands of time, both professional and family. We hoped that this additional time to submit your abstract will be helpful.

At this time, SSWR is still planning on holding the 2021 SSWR Conference in San Francisco. However, we recognize that the coronavirus pandemic has caused many universities to implement financial and travel restrictions on faculty and students. It is also uncertain what course the pandemic will take in late 2020 and early 2021. Therefore, in the coming months, the SSWR Board and the Conference Program Committee will be exploring ways in which we may be able to include some virtual components to the conference.
