The keynote speakers will be Marianne P. Bitler (University of California-Davis) and David Figlio (Northwestern University). The presidential address will be given by Arthur van Soest (Tilburg University). As part of the 30th anniversary of the Society, there will be a series of special sessions delivered by past presidents of ESPE.
