SSA Submission System

Welcome! We are currently accepting technical session proposals for our 2021 Annual Meeting, held virtually from 19–23 April 2021. Submissions will be accepted until the deadline: 1 October 2020 at 5 p.m. Pacific. 

You will be asked to provide a session name, a 1-2 paragraph description of the session and the name, affiliation and contact information of at least one convener. For inspiration, read sessions from 2019 or 2020.

In October, session submitters will be notified if their technical session has been approved. By November 2020, SSA will publish the planned sessions for the 2021 Annual Meeting. 

For questions about proposing a technical session, please contact the co-chairs, Rich Briggs (U.S. Geological Survey), Diego Melgar (University of Oregon) and Jenny Nakai (University of New Mexico) at
