Wait…what happened to IPSEC?

The International Public Science Events Conference is now known as the Science Events Summit.

The 2018 Science Events Summit will be taking place in St. Petersburg, Florida, with an evening event on Sunday, June 3rd, and conference sessions on June 4th and 5th. Science festivals will be well represented at the meeting, but we’ll also see more from other event formats than ever before.

Register now.

Still reminiscing about IPSEC 2017? Materials for that conference can be found here.
