ASPE Publications > Proceedings


Proceedings of ASPE’s Annual and Topical Meetings are published by ASPE. Copies are available through ASPE Headquarters. Beginning with the Fall 1999 Proceedings, copies are also available on CD-ROM.

For members, All Proceedings can be accessed on line in the Members Only section of this website. For most Proceedings after 1999, a PDF version of a specific paper can be obtained from this website. If you are not a member, you can search all of the Proceedings with the exception of the most recent 2 years.
