Welcome to GSA's 44th Annual Meeting!
Welcome to our 44th Annual Conference! All sessions are listed in the Schedule. Please spend time exploring the Exhibitor Hall and Sponsor Page, where you can directly link to each Exhibitor’s or Sponsor’s website, make an appointment to meet a publisher, or browse the book and media collections.
**Registered conference attendees may now watch those sessions that were recorded by clicking on the title of the session in the program. The technical problem has been resolved, and this OpenWater site will be available approximately for a month after the conference.**
The conference will begin on 29 September with some special programs, including activities originally planned for our annual Arts Night. Our conference sessions – including “traditional” sessions, roundtables, and seminars, will take place between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time US to allow easier, live participation both from the Pacific coast of North America and from Europe. Most sessions will take place live using Zoom; most will also be recorded and will be available for viewing to registered conference participants for approx. 30 days after the conference concludes. Large-scale sessions, such as our annual awards ceremony (scheduled for Saturday, 3 October, at 2:30 p.m.), will use a webinar format. As you will see, the conference also includes an Exhibitors’ Gallery, so you’ll be able to visit many of the exhibitors who regularly attend our conferences.
