The 18th Annual Conference of the NPA, July 6-9, 2011, at College Park, MD

This meeting was one of our annual gatherings that took place at the campus of the University of Maryland at College Park. We want to thank Cynthia Whitney for her many years ofdedication as editor of these proceedings, and DonBriddell, Greg Volk and David de Hilster for putting on the conference and creating the 2011 Proceedings.
