Welcome to the website for the ISPST 2012 Conference!  Our conference will be held July 20-22nd at various locations on or near the University of Pittsburgh campus.  Please use the side tabs to find information for how to register, the program of events, and information about our sponsors, keynote speakers, and event locations.

This site is up and running.  Check-back regularly as important announcements will be posted here.
  • 7-19-12 update:  A few errors were found in the program. We have corrected them on the website, and will providing hardcopies at the conference. The times on Friday afternoon needed to be adjusted to account for the need to change venues between the talks and poster sessions, and so we have cut lunch from 1.5 hours to 1 hour 15 minutes. Apologies for the last minute change.
  • 7-18-12 update: here is a link to a copy of the email we sent on 7-18 with important information for people who are attending the conference.
  • 7-9-12 UPDATE: THE SUNDAY INFORMAL SCIENCE LEARNING DAY IS FULL AND NO ADDITIONAL ATTENDEES ARE ALLOWED.
  • REGISTRATION RATES HAVE INCREASED BY $10 ACROSS THE BOARD AS OF 7-9-12.
