UC Berkeley's Project Production Systems Laboratory (P2SL) has been conducting significant research since we founded it in 2005. At this annual conference we will report out on our recent findings, ongoing work, and new initiatives. Our students and staff will present the 'action research' we are pursuing with our members from industry, and we would like to encourage you to become a P2SL member to learn from research together with us. 

Please join us in sharing provocative ideas and engaging in rich discussion. 

This day-long meeting on Wednesday April 25, 2018, will take place in the Garden Room at the UC Berkeley Clark Kerr Campus just south of our main campus.

  • Share P2SL research findings and provoke new ideas
  • Disseminate findings to practitioners,

Desired Outcomes
