      Beginning in 2013, ISPP's conference registration now includes a waiver. Since attendance at ISPP's Annual Meeting is voluntary, and locations vary around the globe, it was recommended that ISPP have a waiver for each conference. This ensures communication of important information to registrants, and provides additional protection for the organization. Waivers have become common practice for numerous organizations, and it is now part of registration for ISPP events. You will be required to electronically sign the 2014 waiver as part of your conference registration. You can view the waiver HERE, as well as on the registration site once registration opens.


      The application processes for the 2014 Summer Academy is NOW CLOSED. Please contact the organizers if you have any questions.

      This year, ISPP and the Junior Scholars Committee will host a luncheon for junior scholars and establish mentors on the first day of the conference. Each mentor will be paired with 2-3 emerging academics based on mutual interests. Junior Scholars: Please register for the luncheon when you register for the Annual Meeting; based on availability, you will be sent a follow-up email by the luncheon organizers to confirm your participation. Senior Mentors: If you are willing to serve as a mentor, please email the Mentoring Luncheon organizers, Laura Taylor and Gary Smith.
