The 2012 PPSR Conference in Portland has come and gone, but unless I'm wrong this is one event that will refuse to be constrained by time and space!

Around 300 people gathered to share ideas through posters, talks, and a plenary conversation about advancing the field. Much of the energy and many of the ideas have been captured by videographer Wayne MacPhail, and are available on our YouTube channel. You can check out overviews of the poster sessions, see reflections by attendees on the future of the field, and hear short interviews with each of the plenary presenters. You can also see a Flickr slideshow of the event.

Over the next two weeks we will be working to compile PDFs of the posters and power point presentations, and will also be sharing the Tweet-sized report-outs from 12 working groups that discussed such possibilities as an association, a journal, and more. Although these ideas were distilled into 140 characters for the purpose of sharing, they are soon to expand again into deep conversations that aim to engage all of you.

More soon!
