Annual Conference

The SESP 2018 conference will be held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Seattle, WA October 4-6, 2018. The local conference organizers are Cheryl Kaiser, Sapna Cheryan, Kristina Olson, and Alex Czopp.

The SESP meeting is generally open to SESP members only, but each SESP member in attendance may sponsor one guest, and non-member speakers whose symposia are accepted may attend without sponsorship. Registration for the conference itself will open in June.
This year's Program Committee includes Kentaro Fujita (Chair), David Funder, Ashby Plant, and Ines Jurcevic (Seattle representative). As always, members and non-members are invited to submit symposia. We are particularly interested in symposia that provide new ways of looking at topics, that include both established as well as younger members of SESP, and that attempt to link areas of interest that are not normally connected. The call for symposia submissions will open in late March and will remain open until May 28, 2018.
Please be sure to make your hotel reservations as part of SESP’s room block – the link to do so will be posted in March.

We look forward to seeing you in Seattle in October!

Our newly adopted Convention Code of Conduct is now available.

Looking ahead:  SESP 2019 will be in Toronto, Canada, October 17-20. We are also seeking future sites for SESP -- if you are interested in hosting in 2020 or beyond, please email Monica Biernat at
