Annual Meeting SHOT 2013
10-13 October, Portland, Maine
This year, the Society's Annual Meeting will be in Portland, Maine. Easily accessible by air, rail or car, Portland is one of New England’s most attractive and entertaining cities. As the Convention and Visitors Bureau rightfully notes:
Greater Portland's natural beauty, bustling downtown, and rich history create a memorable vacation location [or meeting]. Arts, sports, outdoor recreation and shopping, combined with fine dining and world class accommodations, make Greater Portland a must-see destination in Maine.
The Holiday Inn by the Bay, just a short walk from restaurants, historical attractions, and entertainment and arts venues, will serve as conference headquarters. You can take a video tour of the hotel below.
As always, SHOT 2012 in Copenhagen was a great opportunity to meet and learn and play with a group of friendly and outgoing scholars. People know that attending a SHOT annual meeting is a chance to catch up on the latest scholarship while having fun. Please join us in Portland for SHOT 2013.
The Council and Officers are looking closely at the possibility of holding the 2016 meeting in East Asia, but individuals and groups from anywhere in the world are encouraged to think about hosting the SHOT Annual Meeting. If you are interested in hosting SHOT in the future, please have a look at the Call for Host Proposals.
