Dear PISLAP Community,

Hoping this note finds you all well! and if you haven't yet had a chance to read our very dynamic recent Pislap newsletter, please go back and open it. It has some wonderful pieces, and also an announcement of the dates for our next conference, which will be in Washington, D,C, October 14-17, 2018.

We are delighted to announce our 2017-2018 PISLAP Conference call series. Below are the names of our presenters, the general subject matter of their presentation, as well as the dates.  When the date for each gets closer, we will send out an updated announcement with more information about the call.
