Overview

New York is a city that never sleeps, and truly, the metropolitan area is constantly abuzz with breakthroughs in condensed matter physics. However, to date there has been little opportunity for physicists at the many institutions in the metro-area to come together to learn and share what is happening in our field. To fill this need, graduate students from the tri-state area have come together to organize the “Gotham-Metro Condensed Matter Meeting,” and we want YOU to be a part of it. Hosted by the New York Academy of Sciences, this biannual conference is a fantastic chance for students, postdocs and faculty to share ideas and research with fellow physicists training and working in and around the Big Apple. The conference will include keynote lectures by distinguished speakers in both hard and soft condensed matter physics, a “fireside chat” led by a prominent local physicist, student talks highlighting current research, and poster sessions presenting research projects from diverse subfields, as well as a catered lunch and reception. With so many avenues for scientific discourse and collaboration, this is an event not to be missed!
