The PPSA 2016 International Conference is now scheduled on 21-22 April 2016, at the La Piazza Hotel and Convention Center in Legazpi City, Albay.

The change of schedule was upon the request of our host since Legazpi City would be very congested on our original date due to the 2016 Palarong Pambansa, the annual national students' sports meet of the Philippines.
