The dates have been selected to (1) avoid the campus orientation and (2) allow LIPS attendees to also attend the American Association of Physics Teachers in nearby Cincinnati, if desired. AAPT starts on Saturday, July 22.

LIPS 2017 will be four days instead of the more usual three. Tim and Stephanie Slater, whom you may know from the CAPER Center for Astronomy and Physics Education Research team, have offered to lead a day dedicated to Astronomy 101 teaching. That day will be Friday, July 21; it will be an optional add-on to LIPS. In case you are not familiar with the Slaters and/or CAPER, here are some links:

There are still many details to work out (registration costs, etc.), but I wanted to make sure that you all put this on your calendars. I will post messages in the future about the likely registration opening date; I suspect that will be in early 2017.

A huge thank you to Dayna Thompson and Ron Kaitchuck at Ball State for their offer to host, as well as to Tim and Stephanie Slater for their offer to lead the extra day next year!
