  • Virtual Meeting

    PRIM&R's 2017 Social, Behavioral, and Educational Research Conference (SBER17) will take place on November 5, and the 2017 AER Conference (AER17) will take place on November 6-8. Thousands of your colleagues are making plans to join us in San Antonio, TX this fall. For those unable to attend in person, PRIM&R will offer a SBER17/AER17 Virtual Meeting, which will include the live streaming of the conference keynote addresses, select plenary sessions, and several breakout sessions (including those geared toward the changes in the revised Common Rule). Given all the regulatory changes set to begin in 2018, you don't want to miss this year's conference!

    Registration will open in September.

    Thank you to our SBER17/AER17 Virtual Meeting Supporter
