A NOTE ABOUT THE SCIENCE MARCH: 

We realize that the conference is scheduled on the same day as the Science March on Washington. We are all for science! The April 22, 2017 date has been reserved, literally, since the day of the 2016 conference. We rely on George Mason University to very generously donate the space to make the conference happen. That’s how we haven’t increased registration fees for the past 5 years. This means, also, that we need to take the days that are available, and in the case of something like the emergence of the Science March, we’re simply not in a position to move the date of the conference, since our date has been set for a full year.
