The conference will take place at the NYU Abu Dhabi Campus Conference Center, on Saadiyat Island. This is in Building A6
There will be limited space available on campus, and there will be blocks of rooms at nearby hotels. More information soon!
Please be prepared to submit your paper by December 28, 2023. You may email your submission to email@example.com as well as to your discussant directly; PDF files are preferred.
We will then add a link to the paper to the online program. We will do our best to accommodate papers that come in later than this, but cannot guarantee they will be posted in time. However, at the very least we ask that you send your draft to your discussant by December 28 to give them time to prepare.
For single-paper panels, presentations are typically about 35 minutes. For two-paper panels, you should plan on 15-20 minutes.
Discussion comments at PolMeth typically last about 20 minutes and are a highlight of the conference. Typically (but not always) discussants make slides. To make high-quality discussions possible, we have asked presenters to send you their papers by December 28, 2023 (two weeks before the conference begins). Please feel free to contact us if you have not heard from your assigned paper(s) after this deadline.
We do ask that all participants send their poster files to their discussants by January 4, 2024.
All posters will be numbered, and posters will be assigned to a specific position on the final (printed) program. We will provide poster board and tacks to mount your poster.
Easels will be set up before the beginning of the panel session preceding the poster sessions. You can set up the posters at any time after they are put in place. Food and drink will be served during the poster session. Presenters are encouraged to arrive promptly to get these (although you can also leave your poster temporarily if needed as well).
We recommend that you print the poster in advance and bring it to the conference.
As with all SPM-sponsored activities, we aim for the conference to be free of harassment, including but not limited to: harassment based on race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, color, physical appearance, national origin, ancestry, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, and socio-economic background. Harassment includes, among other actions, degrading verbal comments, discriminatory jokes and language, deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Anyone who experiences harassment or hostile behavior may contact the SPM's Climate Liaison Teppei Yamamoto (firstname.lastname@example.org).
For more more information, see the SPM website.
The attire for the conference is very casual. T-shirts are much more common than ties for men. No one wears suits. Dress in something that makes you feel comfortable.
We do recommend you dress in layers as Abu Dhabi air conditioning can be quite aggressive.
Meals and snacks will be provided during the conference, but for those interested in staying in Abu Dhabi for an extra day or two, we are happy to provide dining recommendations at all price points. Feel free to reach out to the conference organizers by email.
