We initially planned to hold the next meeting of SSHAP in Rio de Janeiro in the Summer of 2016. However, that is also when and where the next Olympic Games will take place and we were unable to find a hotel that would accommodate everyone, or many hotels that would each accommodate some of us. Everything is booked out. Fortunately, the local organisers (Dirk Greiman and Jean-Yves Beziau) and invited speakers (Mike Beaney, Juliet Floyd and Leila Haaparanta) have graciously accepted to postpone the Rio meeting to 2017 (dates to be confirmed).
We are currently finalising arrangements for a new venue for the 2016 annual meeting of SSHAP and we’ll make an announcement in early September. The CFP will follow shortly thereafter.
