The 2012 ASPE Conference in San Diego is set to promote further appreciation and awareness of the depth and complexity of current SP methodology throughout the world. The 2012 program also seeks to challenge participants with the virtually unlimited potential offered by this increasingly diverse, rapidly evolving field. We are planning an innovative program that builds on the strengths and potential of our membership through collaborative forums, shared expertise, and professional networking. The ASPE Annual Conference continues to welcome all submission proposals related to SP methodology aimed at novice, veteran or all audience levels.
