37th SALIS Annual International Conference in San Diego, April 28 - May 1, 2015

Contact:becht004@cougars.csusm.edu, http://public.csusm.edu/becht004/1915expopage.htmlHosted by the Silver Gate Group, the 2015 SALIS Annual International Conference will convene in sunny San Diego, California on April 28 -- May 1, 2015.

Our theme this year is "Linking Worlds of Knowledge: SALIS, an International Pathway." One hundred years ago, San Diego hosted the Panama-California Exposition, a world’s fair celebrating the opening of the Panama Canal, the first direct pathway between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. This year, a century later, SALIS will convene in San Diego for the first time ever. Our theme is inspired by the Panama Canal’s connection of two oceans and their respective hemispheres.

Registration is OPEN!

Deadlines for early-bird registration and hotel reservations at the guaranteed SALIS conference rate are fast approaching. Details in the SALIS Conference pages.
