PIRA 2022: To Be Determined

Join us from Thursday, TBD evening through Sunday, TBD for PIRA 2022!  We'll have our Annual Business Meeting, run the AAPT SM 2022 Lecture Demo Workshop, a number of PIRA summer conference sesions, and more.  This will be one of the few times PIRA has arranged an independent meeting.  We expect to have PIRA colleagues both onsite, and online doing workshops, make-n-takes, demos, posters, talks, etc.  Are you considering going in person or joining online?

Base registration is $20 whether online or in person to go to costs such as make'n'takes, BBQ, internet access, and CEUs.  For the business meeting you should also renew your dues for $10.  The AAPT Lecture Demonstration Workshop can be registered for directly through the AAPT website with Summer Meeting 2022 separately.  (For those PIRA members not participating or presenting in the LDW as AAPT registrants, you can follow via a static Zoom stream we'll provide -- but we won't be interacting with you since to be a participant you should register with AAPT.)  Other optional activities online such as the make'n'takes are being arranged to be sent in advance to online participants who register before July 1.

Additional details:

Activities will take place at TBD.

Airport - TBD

Car Rentals are always at every airport.  However, just let us know when you are scheduled to arrive and the "PIRA limo service" will come pick you up and also deliver you when you are scheduled to depart.  (This works if you arrive ahead of the BBQ on Thursday, and leave on Sunday or Monday.)
