In person sessions will be at the Macaulay Building, 35 West 67 Street. Room numbers appear on the programs.

Remember to have a CUNY ID and your digital Cleared4 Pass ready when you arrive at the building. We kindly request that you wear a mask at the in-person event.

Here is some other important information about the event.

  • You will present in groups.
  • Practice in advance and know who will cover each of your slides. Decide who will share your screen for Zoom sessions. For in-person sessions, make sure that each group member has a copy of the final presentation file.
  • Each group should assign one contact person who will register your group and provide the names of the other participants as well as a title for your presentation. Your group will be presenting on a panel with groups from other classes and campuses.
  • Carefully proofread the information you submit. We post programs with names and presentation titles as submitted.
  • Groups choose one time slot on one conference day. Slots are first-come, first-served. We are unable to hold multiple spots for one group.
  • The presentations are 10 minutes. (Presentations cannot go over the 10 minutes, so you will need to practice!). Each session will also have a Q&A period.
  • Each time slot will be divided into two one-hour long panels, with concurrent panels running. You and your group will be presenting on one of the panels. For the other, you will be an audience member in the same room. Plan to stay for the full two hours.
  • Your group will be able to choose whichever date is convenient for you. Register early to get the most choice of dates and times.
  • Entire classes are not expected to attend the same session. We cannot provide dedicated space for single classes. Presentations will be grouped by shared topics or themes to encourage cross-campus discussions of your research projects.
  • Macaulay will provide a moderator for each session.

The registration period has ended.
