SENCER MidAtlantic Spring Meeting
SENCER Center for Innovation - MidAtlantic
Spring Meeting
April 5, 2019
9:00 am to 5:00 pm

The MidAtlantic SCI Spring Meeting is being hosted by Katayoun Chamany and Davida Smyth of Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts at The New School in New York City.

The theme for our meeting is “STEM, Humanities and Social Justice” in keeping with the strong Social Justice mission of the College.

To kick off the meeting we are co-sponsoring an ARTWork Presentation with our colleagues in the Arts at Lang, showcasing David Rothenberg who sits at the intersection of art and science and is located at the NY Institute of Technology. His presentation will be the night before the SENCER Meeting to kick it off at 6:00pm on April 4th. This is a public event so please save the date and spread widely.


We are no longer accepting submissions for talks, posters, workshops or fireside chats, but you're welcome to attend.

You are invited to submit proposals for Short Talks (30 min), Workshops (90 min), Poster sessions (60 min) or Fireside chat (30-60 min) informal discussions. See below for details for each session. Light refreshments will be served for breakfast and beverages available during the Fireside Chats. You will be on your own for lunch with opportunities to explore neighborhood eateries with colleagues.

For all submissions, please include title, authors, institutions, and a 250 word abstract.

Abstracts submitted prior to February 8th will have priority as well as those from the New School.
