To give voice to the broadest range of attendees, this event will showcase three sessions for sharing posters and conversations. Four plenary sessions of invited speakers will frame broader conversations and point to new directions in the field.

The PPSR Conference will culminate in an open meeting to explore strategies for large-scale collaborations to support and advance work across this field of practice, potentially through the development of an association.
