Announcements & Reminders Say Cheese!
We are working hard to create a rich and enduring archive of photos and video, and hope that each of you is willing to be a part of this. Some of the photos and video taken at this year’s conference may be used on our website and/or for other promotional purposes. If you prefer to opt out of having your photograph taken and used by PRIM&R, please be sure to alert the photographer and/or videographer during the conference. We are using passive consent for this project, but the photographer and videographer have been instructed to honor the request of anyone not wishing to be photographed and/or videotaped. Thank you for understanding our desire to capture these exciting moments and, at the same time, respect your right to opt out.
For those requiring a quiet and private space to pump during our conference, PRIM&R has set aside a room for your convenience. Please visit the Help Desk to obtain access to this room.
Religious Observance and Prayer
For those requiring a quiet space to pray and/or observe other religious practices during our conference, PRIM&R has set aside Room 105 for your use. This room will remain open to all during the hours of the conference.
Help us be Green!

Conference Job Board
Please visit our 2013 AER Conference job board, located in the Registration area in Pre-Function C, to browse employment opportunities in the field of human subjects protections. Looking to fill a position at your institution? Please stop by the Help Desk, and a PRIM&R staff member will be happy to assist you.
On the morning of your departure, we recommend that you check your luggage at the bell stand of your hotel and plan to return there prior to your departure, as the Hynes Convention Center does not have an official taxi stand and it may be difficult to get a taxi to the airport from this location. If you need to depart soon after the close of the conference on November 9, please bring your personal items with you and check them at the luggage stand on level one outside the café area in the Hynes Convention Center. Please note the fee to check bags is $3 per item, and the luggage check will be open from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM on November 9 only.
Random Acts of Conference Kindness (ROCK) You’ve heard about “random acts of kindness” and “paying it forward,” no? Well, the PRIM&R staff embraces this idea of spreading positive energy. Thus, please be on the lookout for ROCKs during the 2013 AER Conference, which are tiny tokens of our gratitude for joining us in Boston, and be sure to pay those ROCKs forward to another conference attendee. PRIM&R would like to thank IRBNet for supporting this year’s ROCK program.
