Special Opportunities for Research Communities
The WPSA annual meeting not only offers the opportunity for traditional
research presentations and roundtable discussions, but also a
place for interested groups to schedule special events and workshops.
On the Wednesday right before the conference begins, there is
limited space available to accommodate groups who wish to hold
workshops or offer short courses. In addition, if you are part
of a research community that is interested in holding a meeting
in the spring, we may be able to accommodate your group by coordinating
a conference within the annual conference. There were four such
coordinated conferences at the April meeting in Las Vegas, all
of which were highly praised by their participants. There is also
the opportunity to host receptions, business meetings, and special
events. Finally, individual authors are encouraged to talk with
us about how to get their recently published books displayed at
the 2016 meeting. For information about these opportunities, please
contact Richard Clucas, WPSA Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
