Pre-Congress Workshops and Master Lectures

Our Pre-Congress program offers the opportunity to participate in advanced lectures or workshops with leading scholars and practitioners on Thursday, July 13th, before the full Congress begins that evening. Attendance for these sessions is not included in the World Congress Registration listed above, but in previous years, hundreds of IPPA World Congress attendees have chosen to add one or more of these sessions to their learning experience.
