FAQs

Is there a limit on the number of proposals one person can submit?

SHARP 2019 will follow the custom of most conferences and ask that members limit themselves, unless there are extraordinary circumstances, to two program submissions, for example, a paper (submitted individually or as part of a panel) and a roundtable, lightning talk, or other larger group activity. Of course, presenters may also chair panels as an additional contribution to the conference.

Is there a local shop for printing from a file sent electronically?

We recommend Collective Copies in Amherst Center:  https://collectivecopies.com/

Will I need a car to get around?

The walk from the UMass campus to Amherst Center is a bit over one mile of relatively flat, side-walked, and well-lighted terrain.  

The campus is connected to Amherst Center and to the campuses of Amherst, Hampshire, Mt. Holyoke, and Smith Colleges by two PVTA bus routes:  https://www.fivecolleges.edu/bus.  A current schedule will be posted closer to the date of the conference.  

Ride sharing services are available for individual trips.
