Crossing Borders, Blazing Trails

May 15 – 18, 2019

The 2019 Local Arrangements Committee welcomes you to sunny Tucson, Arizona for our annual meeting. Known as the “Old Pueblo,” Tucson is surrounded by the beauty of the Sonoran Desert with endless views and over 350 days of sunshine each year. A tricultural meeting place of Native, Mexican, and Anglo histories, Tucson is also home to people from around the world. Its deep-rooted history in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands and multicultural heritage touch the small city in every facet, creating an extraordinary Southwestern gem. “Crossing Borders, Blazing Trails” connects to Tucson’s unique Southwest border location and encourages discussion around discovery, diversity and inclusion, collaboration, new initiatives and trends, achievements, experimental projects, innovation, and so much more. We are thrilled to have you here with us for this grand exploration in the desert!

We’d like to acknowledge that this conference will be taking place on the traditional territory of the Tohono O’odham people.
