Please send your abstracts to macsim6cuny (symbol rhyming with “hat”) gmail (symbol rhyming with “hot”) com.

Financial Support for presenters
We aim to reimburse all graduate student presenters for their trip to New York (bus/economy train). To make this possible with our limited budget, we ask that presenters try their best to use inexpensive means of transport. We will also provide crash space, courtesy of CUNY/NYU students, for those who need it. The paperwork for reimbursement will be posted soon.
