Conference program
In lieu of a pre-printed program, we are offering a PDF (https://rsa.confex.com/rsa/f/rsa2019program) program which conference attendees may download and print if they wish. Additionally, the online program is available with full searching capabilities, and it is available in the conference app, where you can create a personal schedule. You can also find the mobile app by searching for RSA Annual in the App Store and Google Play Store.

Once the mobile app is downloaded it doesn't require an internet connection to work, though you will need to occasionally connect to the internet to receive updates (including session changes).

To request a program change, or to notify the RSA of a withdrawal, please submit this form.

Conference events and services
The following events and services are open to all conference registrants and there's no additional charge for using or attending them. In the case of some services such as the Headshot booth or Lactation room, you may encounter a delay if the service is popular.

The first morning of the conference is always busy at Registration; we recommend building a bit of extra time into your schedule if you plan to pick up your badge then. To make the experience more enjoyable, we've added a Welcome Breakfast with coffee, tea, and some light pastries right by Registration so you can have a bite and chat with colleagues before attending your first session. Conversely, if you're at the Sheraton Centre on Saturday, you can pick up your badge before the conference even starts.

Teaching the conference
Attending the conference can be a useful educational tool for undergraduates and beginning graduate students who are interested in learning about Renaissance studies or the academic profession generally. Professor Christopher Carlsmith wrote about his experience bringing undergraduates to the 2016 Annual Meeting in Boston.
