The guidelines below encourage a wide and diverse set of presenters.
Each participant may do one activity from each of categories A–E:
- Present a refereed paper
- Present a lightning talk and e-poster
- Chair a session
- Serve as a discussant
- 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.
Only the program chair of SDSS 2021, with ample justification, may grant exceptions to the above rules.
