Welcome!

Welcome to the website for the 2017 SILC Congress.

Our 2017 conference returns to sunny Phoenix once again but features some big changes from last year.

Conference Dates and Location:

The 2017 SILC Congress will be held at the Hilton Phoenix/Mesa. Please be sure to visit the Conference Hotel page for more information about the facility and to get details on how to make your room reservations.

New in 2017 is a change to holding the conference during the week. If you’ve attended the conference in recent years, you know it has been held over the MLK holiday weekend. It is our hope this is a positive change for you and that it results in increased attendance and satisfaction with the conference.
