    Yes, avoiding that conflict has become a goal for the SSPP.  You can now plan on it not conflicting with the Pacific APA.  Dates for 2010 (in New Orleans!) don’t conflict.  SSPP will now typically be around the first or second week of April.

    We have also been fortunate in having a string of excellent program chairs, continuing with Dan!

    And SSPP will no longer conflict with Easter either. Next year 2010 is in Atlanta, and then it’s 2011 that is in New Orleans. Unfortunately, next year will conflict with the Tucson Consciousness Conference, so we’ll have to try to avoid that conflict in 2012. There’s always too much to do. Dan’s put together a great looking invited program!
