Participation Guidelines

The guidelines below encourage a wide and diverse set of presenters.

Each participant may do one activity from each of categories A–E:

  1. Deliver a main presentation (one of the following):
    • Present in an invited session
    • Present a contributed paper
  2. Present an e-poster
  3. Chair a session
  4. Serve as a discussant
  5. Teach a short course

While the above guidelines allow for multiple presenting roles within the SDSS program, please note that a person cannot hold multiple roles within one session.

In addition, the participation rules do not preclude individuals from being co-authors of as many papers as they wish or from organizing multiple sessions.

Only the program chair of SDSS 2020, with ample justification, may grant exceptions to the above rules.
