After a long break, the TPER organizers are excited to announce that we will host our first in-person event since 2020.

The 5th Annual TPER Spring Symposium


It will be held March 30th at the UMD Library Rotunda. More information to come, but we hope you can all join. Contact us with any questions.

The TPER community was virtual and quiet between spring of 2020 and spring of 2023. The organizational team put a hold on all in person events for the duration the COVID-19 pandemic.

The first Virtual 2020 Spring Symposium was a blast. We had a great talk from Antony Williams and an excellent panel. Thanks to all the organizers, speakers, and attendees help to make for a nice event during a difficult time.

The 2019 Fall Forum is a wrap, thanks to everyone who participated in this great event. TPER Fall Forums are a place for career advice, networking, and skill building. The 2019 Fall Forum was no exception. We had a “Networking for scientists workshop”, an early-career panel, and a keynote ” Science as a Business: What’s Your Model and How Will You Thrive?”
