The fourth Foundations and Frontiers of Physics Education Research: Puget Sound (FFPERPS) conference will be held June 16 - 19, 2018, at the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center in North Cascades National Park, 3 hours from Seattle and Vancouver BC.

* this conference is private and registration is by invite only

FFPERPS is intended as a biannual conference that provides a venue for rich dialogue among physics education researchers in the Cascadia region and beyond. It is designed to enhance communication and collaboration and to increase the visibility of work that is of high quality but not well known. The conference provides a forum for examining and articulating the current state of the field, exploring future directions, and discussing ways to pursue promising avenues of research. The structure of the conference, based on that of the FFPER conference held in Bar Harbor, Maine, includes plenary talks, targeted sessions, contributed poster sessions, and substantial free time for informal interactions.

The 2018 conference will feature plenary speakers engaged in a wide variety of exciting research and scholarship around the learning and teaching of physics.

Registration includes 3 nights lodging, 8 meals (dinner Saturday; breakfast, lunch, and dinner Sunday & Monday; breakfast Tuesday), coffee service and a snack Friday and Saturday, a Saturday evening campfire complete with 'smores, in a beautiful location with amazing company and great learning.
