This timeline outlines when authors/presenters can expect to receive notifications and the deadlines for critical tasks related to their presentation. You are responsible for being aware of these deadlines and completing all tasks (as applicable) by the due dates.
A personalized link for the Author/Presenter Management Center site was included in the disclosure notification each author (either presenting or non-presenting) received after their proposal was submitted. All authors should be logging into the Author/Presenter Management Center to check for important notifications, critical deadlines, instructions, and required agreements and disclosure forms.
Read more about the required agreements and disclosures for authors and presenters, general expectations for sessions offered at the ASHA Convention, accessibility guidelines, helpful tips for creating your presentation, earning continuing education credit for presenting, and more.
After acceptance, we will provide presenters of pre-recorded/virtual sessions with detailed instructions for preparing, recording, and submitting their presentations to the virtual platform. Presenters will be required to upload their presentation by October 24, well in advance of the ASHA Convention. This additional lead time is needed so all sessions may be captioned, as well as for quality assurance testing. If you are unable to meet the upload deadline, your presentation will be administratively withdrawn from the program.
Every year, we receive many requests from attendees seeking more information from presenters. To better meet their educational needs, presenters are required to upload 3 pages of supporting material in advance, including a comprehensive outline of the presentation and a list of references related to the final presentation. Presenters who have more than 3 pages of material may include links to additional resources in their handouts. These handouts will be available to all attendees via the Program Planner and mobile app. (Presenters will NOT upload their final presentation via this process—only advance notes which attendees may download to have accessible during the presentation.)
On September 22, you will receive an e-mail notification that you may upload your 3-page handout, along with instructions and an upload link. The preferred format for this handout is PDF. All materials must be uploaded by October 19.
A Moderator is considered a presenting author. As active participants in the session, moderators must complete all author agreements and disclosures. Moderators' responsibilities are to:
After acceptance, we will provide all poster presenters with detailed instructions for recording their 15-minute audio presentation and preparing and uploading their digital posters. Presenters are required to upload their poster presentation by October 13, well in advance of the ASHA Convention. This additional lead time is needed for quality assurance testing. If your presentation is not uploaded by the deadline, we will administratively withdraw it from the program.
Per the Presenting Author Agreement, all presenters (the individuals who are actually speaking or presenting the session) are required to register for the ASHA Convention. Registration will open on August 1, 2022, at 10:00 a.m., Eastern time.
Presenters of virtual-only sessions or posters have three registration options:
If you also have an accepted in-person session, you must register for either the full in-person event or for one day in person. If you opt for one-day registration, you must choose the day on which your presentation is scheduled. If you have multiple in-person presentations, this option only applies if they are scheduled on the same day, otherwise, you will need to register for the full three-day event. You must also agree to follow ASHA’s Vaccination and Masking Policy for Live Events.
On August 1, invited speakers will receive their contract letter with special instructions via email from email@example.com. If you are an invited speaker and do not receive this information, please contact us immediately.
Non-member presenters (who are not speech-language pathologists or audiologists and therefore ineligible to join ASHA) should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for special instructions on how to register for the ASHA Convention.
Presenters who are students in the field of audiology or speech-language pathology must be national NSSLHA members to register at the NSSLHA/ASHA graduate student rate. Students who are not NSSLHA members will need to pay the non-member registration fee.
All sessions are final as accepted. We are unable to honor requests for switches to an in-person session or changes to session format once the schedule has been finalized. If, for some reason, you must withdraw your presentation, please send written notification to email@example.com as soon as possible.
