Welcome to the SRA Symposium 2009! SRA International is pleased to inaugurate activities for the Society's annual Symposium that will take place as part of the SRA international meeting on October 17-21 in Seattle, Washington.
During the year leading up to the Symposium, we will deepen and enrich our Symposium tradition by continuous enthusiastic encouragement for the submission of contributed papers, posters, abstracts, and milestones of accomplishment.
The 2009 Symposium will include entries for contributed papers, posters, abstracts, and milestones. Each category has unique and special directions. Specific calls for each of these four categories will be repeated in various forums beginning in March 2009 and continuing until the Fall. However, all processes and submissions can begin at any time. The link that follows provides a detailed schedule and deadlines for submission in all categories.
General Information and Open Submission Policy:
Any research administrator or related colleague from any institution can submit a contributed paper, poster, abstract, or milestone of accomplishment.
