Organizing a preconference can seem overwhelming, especially to a first-time organizer. However, all you have to do is select the program and SPSP staff will take care of the rest (catering, a/v, registration, etc).
SPSP accepts applications to host a preconference each year in May. Those interested in hosting a preconference must provide general information about their preconference in an application for review by the convention committee.
Organizers are strongly encouraged to fill out the entirety of the application. Since preconferences are limited by the amount of space available, the information submitted in the application will be used to evaluate which preconferences are selected and which are not if space does not exist for all applications submitted.
After submission and acceptance of your preconference, SPSP staff will do the following:
Organizers must commit to the following:
Note: Please remember SPSP does not monitor, select, limit, or endorse any material presented in preconferences.
