As the oldest “writing” program organization in the US, CPTSC’s annual conference is a cornerstone of the organization’s history and activity. The purpose of the conference is to provide a space for technical, professional, and scientific program administrators and faculty to gather so that they can discuss a wide array of programmatic and pedagogical issues. The conference values discussion, so presenters are limited to 5-7 minutes to ensure that there is ample time within each session for presenters and attendees to discuss the topic(s) at hand.
