Deadline Changes

April 15, 2021 Update

Dear PER Community,

In keeping with the extension of the AAPT Summer 2021 abstract deadline to April 22, the PERC parallel session deadline will be extended to match it and will close on April 22. The window to submit contributed poster abstracts will open one day later on April 23.

Now that the conference format has been chosen, the deadlines for contributed poster associated with the PERC Proceedings will be forthcoming soon. The deadline for abstracts for contributed posters NOT associated with PERC Proceedings papers remains June 25.

Sincerely,
The 2021 PERC Organizers

 

April 7, 2021

Dear PER Community,

This is an update on upcoming deadlines and decisions regarding the 2021 PERC scheduled for Aug 4-5, 2021. Thank you for your patience as AAPT has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to respond to the many challenges within our community and make decisions that are in our collective best interest. In order to minimize confusion, we are working closely with PERLOC, AAPT staff, and the PERC Proceedings editors to make consistent and coherent decisions about the conference and associated deadlines.

The AAPT staff has been balancing the needs of many to assure that the format of the 2021 AAPT Summer Meeting meets the needs of the community. A final decision has not yet been announced regarding the conference format, but we expect to see one in the coming weeks.

The 2021 PERC format will mimic the AAPT Summer Meeting. As such, we have decided to extend the deadline for submitting parallel session abstracts to align with the AAPT Summer 2021 abstract deadline: currently April 15 (This was extended to April 22 in the update above.) If the AAPT abstract deadline is extended, then the parallel session deadline will also be extended to match it. The window to submit contributed poster abstracts will open one day after the parallel session deadline (currently opening April 16) (now April 23).

The PERC Proceedings editorial team has been putting forth an extraordinary effort to prepare for this summer's conference, and we are likely to see an announcement about the paper deadline in the coming weeks.The deadline for contributed posters that are connected to papers will be the same as deadline for PERC Proceedings papers. We expect that this will be some time in the beginning of June.

Abstracts for contributed posters that are NOT associated with PERC Proceedings papers will be due on June 25

We recognize that the lack of clear decisions and fixed deadlines can be frustrating. Unfortunately, at this time decisions related to events as large and complex as the AAPT Summer Meeting and the PERC cannot be made quickly or easily. We are committed to providing updates to the community as they become available. Please watch for additional announcements in the coming weeks.

Sincerely,
The 2021 PERC Organizers
