EPJ 25th Anniverary – Early Career Researcher Meeting

Career Development,
Conference / Symposium
Open to the Public

Three young researchers converse in a lab setting.

Organized and co-sponsored by the Center for Urban Science + Progress (CUSP) at NYU Tandon School of Engineering and The European Physical Journal (EPJ).

We are offering a platform to connect, share ideas, and gain valuable insights. The in-person workshop aims to introduce participants to the many facets of complex systems through interactions with experts in the field. With two senior researchers delivering keynote talks and four early career researchers providing presentations, the event promises to offer a diverse and stimulating program. Those who wish to attend are encouraged to present a poster.

Traditionally underrepresented individuals in the STEM disciplines are especially encouraged to attend.
