Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, SPAC 2020 originally scheduled for June 2020 has been canceled. Organizers are making plans to reschedule the event for June 2021 in Houston. More information will be provided on this page as the situation develops over the coming months.
After the first SPAC in 1985, the conference has been organized 15 times by southern and southeastern U.S. universities. The conference focuses on what has historically been called the Social and Administrative Sciences (SAS), which has recently expanded its scope to include Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR).
A primary goal of SPAC continues to be the exchange of ideas and experiences among graduate programs that share similar opportunities and challenges. Special emphasis of SPAC has always been to provide constructive learning experiences to graduate students unlike the other large conferences. In addition, SPAC allows faculty and students to share best practices to improve quality of graduate education.
