We regret that we have no funding available for participants. Due to the focused nature of this workshop we will not have a session of contributed talks this year.


We do not have an arrangement made with any particular hotel and recommend that you reserve rooms as soon as possible. The Comfort Inn, (212)947-0200, is located half-a-block from the Graduate Center. Some cheap midtown hotels are Hotel 31, and Hotel Grand Union. Other midtown hotels can be found in this hotel guide. Keep in mind that we are at 34th Street and 5th Avenue and that 20 blocks is a mile. We are diagonally across the street from the Empire State Building.

The Sheraton Laguardia East Hotel and the Best Western Queens Court Hotel are located in Flushing near Chinese restaurants and the Long Island Railroad Flushing Main Street Station. They are 20 minutes by LIRR to nearby Penn Station.


Please print out our new poster and post it in your department. Be sure to remove headers and footers in Print Setup and set it to "fit to page" before printing.
