ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Political science professors and graduate students from across the U.S. will meet later this month for a conference at the University of Georgia.

The political science department at the Athens campus will host the annual meeting of the Society for Political Methodology from July 24 to 26. The conference is expected to draw about 180 professors and grad students. John Maltese, UGA's political science department head, says it's a prestigious conference that will give the university "national exposure" among political scholars.

The Society for Political Methodology is a section of the American Political Science Association that's devoted to using advanced statistical techniques in the study of politics.
