Yom Kippur

Posted By Administration, Friday, March 1, 2019

On behalf of the SMA leadership team, I am reaching out to you to acknowledge an inadvertent error in the scheduling of the 2019 SMA conference in Norfolk, VA on October 8-12, 2019.  Our pre-conference activities, i.e.,  Pre-Doctoral, Early Stage and Late Stage consortia, as well as some Professional Development Institute sessions fall on Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement observed from sundown on Tuesday, October 8th through Wednesday, October 9th at sundown. We apologize for the inconvenience this might cause some of our members and are taking action to ensure our future conference scheduling does not invoke such conflicts.

Further, if these dates impact your SMA attendance this year, please notify me at or SMA Program Chair Janaki Gooty at We will work to accommodate any scheduling conflicts to the best of our abilities.  Thanks for your understanding and continued support of SMA.
