Atlanta, GA will be the site for the 2018 annual SEASR meeting to be held June 27 – 29. Atlanta is a cosmopolitan city with lots of activities and attractions to offer visitors (http://www.atlanta.net/ ). The meeting will be held at the Emory conference center and Hotel as was the case in 2016. We have another fun opening reception planned in the Wisteria Lanes bowling alley on the conference center property. The focus of next year’s meeting will be Rigor and Reproducibility. See p.3 of this publication for detail. Future newsletters will focus on the great content that we have planned for this meeting. If you are interested in sponsoring please check out our sponsor prospectus and check our website for updates for the meeting. We look forward to seeing you in Atlanta.
