The 20th Annual Conference of the NPA, July 10-13, 2013, at College Park, MD

This meeting was one of our annual gatherings that took place atthe University of Maryland in College Park. We want to thank Cynthia Whitney and Greg Volk for their many years of dedication as editor of these proceedings, and Jim Newburn and David de Hilster for putting on the conference and creating the 2013 Proceedings.
