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 our annual conference. There were two such coordinated conferences at the meeting in Seattle, both of which were highly praised by their participants. There is also the opportunity to host receptions, business meetings, and other special events. For information about these opportunities, please contact Richard Clucas ( or Elsa Favila (
