We received over 1,400 submissions for the 2016 SIOP conference in Anaheim!  Around 850 sessions were accepted, and the conference is sure to be one of great appeal and intellectual stimulation. In addition to the peer-reviewed master tutorials, debates, symposia, posters, roundtables, alternative session types, and panels that were submitted, the conference committee has been working hard to assemble a quality collection of Friday Seminars, Communities of Interest, a Master Collaboration, a full-day Theme Track, and other Invited Sessions. Below we summarize several notable program elements. You’ll be hearing many more details about the program as the conference approaches.

Bush administration after 9/11. Although a full, detailed account of the many important discussions and issues raised during the meeting is beyond the scope of this article, the following provides a brief summary.
