  • Virtual Meeting

    PRIM&R's 2018 AER Conference (AER18) will take place on November 15-17. Thousands of your colleagues are making plans to join us in San Diego, CA this fall, but for those unable to attend in person, PRIM&R is offering the AER18 Virtual Meeting, which will include the livestreaming of the conference keynote addresses, plenary sessions, and several breakout sessions (including those geared toward the implementation of the 2018 Requirements (the revised Common Rule)). Given all the regulatory changes set to begin in 2019, you don't want to miss this year's conference!

    The 2018 package includes:

    1. The livestreaming of select sessions on November 15-17

    Virtual meeting attendees will have access to three keynote addresses, 10 plenary sessions, and select breakout session content. Information on which sessions will be streamed can be found in the agenda.

    2. Continuing education and CIP recertification credit

    Attendees of the virtual meeting can earn 52.25 CE credit hours. Credit hours may also be used by CIPs who are eligible to recertify by continuing education. The virtual meeting is eligible for up to 44 credits that are accredited or have received advance recognition from the Council for Certified IRB Professionals. The AER18 Virtual Meeting is also a core requirement of the Certificate in the Foundations of Human Subjects Protections program.

    3. Access to the virtual meeting for 30 days after the meeting

    Unable to watch the virtual meeting in real time? Virtual meeting content will be up 24 hours after the session, and will be available for 30 days after the meeting. Note: Michelle M. Mello and Vickie M. Mays's keynote addresses will be livestreamed in real time only; they will not be available for 30 days post-talk, nor will they be included on the conferences proceedings.

    4. Conference content via the conference proceedings

    Virtual meeting attendees will have access to the video and slides from the streamed content, as well as the AER18 breakout session materials, via the conference proceedings. These proceedings will be available after the meeting on the PRIM&R website, and registrants will receive a link to the proceedings right before the conference.

    Add a Networking Component to Your Virtual Meeting Experience

    PRIM&R is offering group rates for the virtual meeting to help facilitate networking among those joining us virtually—whether you purchase the virtual meeting to view with those in your office, or to set-up a remote conference viewing with other institutions in your area. Virtual meeting viewing events can take a variety of forms. They can be formal or casual, structured or not. You can view the livestream of the conferences on November 15-17, the virtual meeting recording, which is available for 30 days after the meeting, or the conference proceedings, which are available for one year after the meeting. The format of your event is up to you!

    Tips for hosting an interactive group meeting can be found in this toolkit.*

    *Group registrants are not required to host an in-person group event to take advantage of the group rate. This rate is available to any institutions wishing to purchase access to the virtual meeting for two or more individuals.
