The Program Committee is responsible for creating sessions for individually submitted papers that have been accepted. Volunteers for Chair and Discussant roles are greatly appreciated. When completing the volunteer form online, you will be able to select keywords associated with the sessions for which you would like to volunteer. 

Year after year, one of the most rewarding experiences for LSA attendees is serving as a volunteer for Program Committee-formed sessions. It can help form valuable connections to a new group of scholars that you may not have otherwise met. This opportunity extends to those who are not presenting this year but still would like to attend and actively participate in our conference.

If you're interested in volunteering as a chair or discussant, please log into your LSA profile and click the button below to fill out the form. The deadline to submit this form is March 16. Please note that all volunteers must be registered for the Annual Meeting. If you still need to register, you can do so by logging into your LSA profile and visiting our registration page, here.

We will confirm the session(s) for which we would like you to serve before formally assigning you to them. The Program Committee will be in touch in the coming weeks if your services are required.

We are so excited you decided to attend our online conference and look forward to virtually connecting with you soon!
