Friends, Colleagues and PSRC Members:

Planning for the PSRC 63rd Annual Meeting is well underway and I look forward to welcoming you to Birmingham this coming May. Justin Sacks and I have been working diligently to make the 2018 program a robust scientific conference. For 2018, the structure of the meeting will be a bit different from past years. Instead of running concurrent abstract sessions there will be a single session. This will allow everyone to attend each session, and hopefully increase the value of the Q&A and discussion time. We have received a strong number of abstracts for the 2018 program, and we are excited about the enthusiasm everyone has to be involved in the PSRC conference! The business meeting will be held at lunchtime on Thursday and the local program on Friday morning at the UAB Hospital. Our program will feature the top papers presented at the 9th EPSRC meeting which was held in Romania in August 2017. We are also working on an interesting panel for Thursday which you won’t want to miss.

While we will spend a significant amount of time discussing science and research, we have organized excellent social events which will allow attendees to relax with friends and colleagues, and see some of the attractions of Birmingham, Alabama. The PSRC Members Dinner will take place on Thursday evening at the Birmingham Museum of Art and on Friday evening we will hold the Welcome Reception at the Barber Motorsports Museum which has over 1,200 motorcycles and race cars on display. We have also left Saturday evening open so that attendees can explore Birmingham including its excellent restaurants.

I look forward to seeing you in Birmingham this coming May!
