The Center for Urban Science + Progress (CUSP) at New York University Tandon School of Engineering is excited to launch the inaugural Applied Urban Science Conference in Brooklyn! Conference attendees and presenters will share innovative ideas around data science in complex urban systems, explore new topics, and create professional connections.
The conference will feature presentations from our Capstone Program, where CUSP graduate students pair with sponsors to research and address critical urban issues across multiple focus areas such as disaster resilience and climate change, fairness and inclusivity, health and wellbeing, and modern infrastructure. Other activities include remarks from the distinguished leadership at CUSP and multiple opportunities for networking with urban science researchers, graduate students, industry practitioners, and public officials.
