We are excited to announce that the Department of Political Science at the University of Missouri-Columbia will host the St. Louis Area Methods Meeting (SLAMM) on April 21-22, 2017.

The meeting will start the morning of Friday, April 21 and will end in the afternoon on Saturday, April 22. SLAMM will feature an exciting lineup of faculty presentations by:

Kathleen Searles, Louisiana State University (Saturday morning)

On Friday morning (April 21) we will have 30-minute paper sessions for graduate students. Through the generosity of multiple sources in the University of Missouri system, we have modest funding to help subsidize the attendance of graduate students. To submit a proposal, send a paper title, abstract, and CV to Laron K. Williams at williamslaro@missouri.eduwilliamslaro@missouri.edu>. Please use the subject "SLAMM proposal". The deadline for graduate student proposals is February 24.

We encourage you to attend this event, which includes a social function as well as a lot of great methodology talks. SLAMM is free to attend, but we require registration so that we can have accurate head-count numbers for
meals and entertainment. If you are interested in attending, please go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2G6C8D7 and provide some basic information.
The registration deadline is March 24.

We have reserved a bloc of rooms at the Broadway Columbia (http://doubletree3.hilton.com/en/hotels/missouri/the-broadway-columbia-a-
doubletree-by-hilton-hotel-COUTBDT/index.html); be sure to register by March 20 and use the code MPS so that you get the discounted rate.
