The 17th Annual Conference of the NPA, 23-26 June, 2010, at Long Beach, CA

This meeting was one of our annual gatherings that took place at the campus of the University of California at Long Beach. We want to thank Cynthia Whitney for her many years of dedication as editor of these proceedings, and Greg Volk and David de Hilster for putting on the conference and creating the 2010 Proceedings.
