EXTENSION Abstract Submission and Meeting Registration

Just a quick note to let you know that we have decided to extend the abstract submission deadline for the 2022 SEA conference to 7 January 2022.

Though we have received a lot of phenomenal submissions already (thank you so much for those!), we have also received a number of notes from people requesting a bit more time to submit abstracts given both the normal end of semester crush and the existential exhaustion we’re all feeling due to the ongoing pandemic. We’re happy to do our modest part to make both of those things a bit more manageable. Hopefully this takes a bit of pressure off.

To see the original call for papers, please visit the 2022 SEA Conference page. If you have any questions or concerns or need any help, contact Dan Souleles (
