    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 is offering a SBER17/AER17 Virtual Meeting, which will include the livestreaming 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!

    Virtual Meeting registrants can access the Virtual Meeting login page here. The password to access this page was included in the informational email you received on November 2.

    The 2017 package includes:

    1. The livestreaming of select sessions on November 5-8

    Virtual meeting attendees will have access to four keynote addresses, seven plenary sessions, and select breakout session content (including those related to the changes in the revised Common Rule). 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 continuing education credit, and hours may be used as accredited hours by CIPs who are eligible to recertify by continuing education. The virtual meeting is eligible for up to 57.5 credits that are accredited or have received advance recognition from the Council for Certified IRB Professionals. The SBER17/AER17 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 available for 30 days after the meeting. Note: Kimberly Kay Hoang's keynote address on November 5 at 8:15 AM CT will be livestreamed in real time only; it will not be available for 30 days post-talk, nor will it be included on the conferences proceedings.

    4. Conference content via the conference proceedings

    In addition to the content streamed on the virtual meeting, attendees will have access to the video and slides from the remaining plenary sessions, as well as the SBER17 and AER17 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

    This year, 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 5-8, 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.
