We are excited to announce the new CPLAC SIG Facebook Group! This group provides a forum for SIG members to share information about teaching, research, and more. All current SIG members are eligible to join the group; all requests to join the group must be approved by an administrator.
We are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2016 CPLAC Student Poster Award, Monica Abdul-Chani and Gabriella Ponzini (Skidmore College, mentor: Casey Schofield) for their poster:
