2019 AERA Annual Meeting Housing Reservations—Take Note of Fraudulent Sites

Dear AERA Members and Friends,

We are writing to let you know that emails from fraudulent housing registration companies are reaching out to potential 2019 AERA Annual Meeting attendees. Multiple members reported that they have received emails from “Nathan Caracas” at a company called Individual Housing LLC (www.individualhousing.org) working in conjunction with Kore Conference.com (www.koreconferences.com). There is also a fake web site encouraging hotel registrations that presents itself as the American Educational Research Association portal for housing.

If you have received any such email or encountered this website directly, please let us know immediately by sending an email to annualmtg@aera.net and include any emails that you received. We have filed appropriate complaints through the hosting company and are taking further investigatory actions.

The official registration site for AERA will open in early December. You will be notified when registration opens. After registering for the 2019 Annual Meeting in Toronto, registrants will have the opportunity to book their housing. A link will be provided at the end of the registration process. Additionally, your conference confirmation email will include a link to access AERA’s official housing reservation site. Any housing reservation solicitations received without completing registration for the Annual Meeting through AERA is not sanctioned and should be reported immediately.

Cordially,

Does Public Engagement Really Matter?

From AERA in the past day or two.

View this email in your browser.

American Educational Research Association

Dear Michael Barbour,

Is science communication important? Does public engagement really matter? Should the scientific community do more or less to support these activities? Here’s your chance to be heard.

If you have already completed the survey, THANK YOU! No further action is required.

If not, please help us improve our understanding of scientific communication and public engagement by completing the following 15-minute survey:

https://uwmadison.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8A3XPmHeRmGqRaB

The study is covered by the Institutional Review Boards (IRB) of the University of Texas-Austin and Michigan State University. Participation in the survey is voluntary, and all responses are anonymous and confidential. Additional information, including contact information for any questions, is provided in the introduction to the survey at the link above.

The American Educational Research Association is one of thirty professional societies participating in this landmark survey – administered by ScienceCounts and the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science – to assess members’ views on science communication and public engagement. Your responses will help us better serve our members, as well as help shape the trajectory of community-wide science communication and public engagement efforts.

Thank you for generously donating your time to support this important endeavor.

Sincerely,

Felice J. Levine, Ph.D.
