SMT events and deadlines

Each year SMT sponsors an annual meeting where scholars may present their ongoing research; papers are accepted on a blind-read, competitive basis. In addition, members may participate in special sessions organized by standing committees, such as the Committee on the Status of Women, the Committee on Diversity, and the Professional Development Committee, as well as events organized by SMT Interest Groups. A special workshop for students and a peer learning workshop are also held as part of the annual meeting.
