We are pleased to announce that the dates and location for the 2017 SSEA conference are now set. The conference will be held in Washington D.C. at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill, between November 2nd-4th, 2017. Preconference workshops will occur during the morning of November 2nd, and the full conference program will run from the afternoon of Thursday the 2nd through the evening of Saturday the 4th.

The conference hotel is about a 5-minute walk from Capitol Hill and a short Metro ride from the museums and monuments. The hotel is also about 5 blocks from Union Station, which is both a Metro station and one of the primary stations for Amtrak trains coming from other U.S. cities.

We are excited to build on the considerable momentum from the 2015 Miami conference. We had a record number of attendees in Miami and fully expect to have even more at the Washington D.C. conference. The invited program is currently being assembled, and the call for submissions will go out in the fall. We will provide travel awards for attendees from outside of North America so that we can maintain the internationally diverse membership for which SSEA has become famous.

Look for more updates from us soon, but we wanted to share the good news about the location and dates for our next meeting. We look forward to seeing everyone in Washington D.C. in November 2017!!
