Prospective Conference Hosts

CPTSC is currently accepting proposals for institutions to host its 2015 and 2016 annual meetings/conferences. Although the deadline for submitting a proposal to host a future conference is an open one, prospective conference hosts are encouraged to submit their proposal by July of the preceding year so the proposal can be discussed at the CPTSC annual business meeting that will take place that fall. (For example, proposals for the 2015 conference should be submitted by July of 2014 in order to be discussed at the 2014 annual business meeting.)
