    From Richard Feynman to Thomas Edison, New York City has been the birthplace of some of the most renowned physical scientists of the past century. To continue this tradition of fostering and connecting top scientific minds, students and faculty from over a dozen institutions in the New York metropolitan area are bringing together the best in local condensed matter physics for the Gotham-Metro Condensed Matter Meeting. Hosted by the New York Academy of Sciences, this biannual conference is a fantastic chance for faculty, postdocs, and students to share ideas and research with fellow physicists. The conference will include keynote lectures by distinguished speakers in both hard and soft condensed matter physics, student talks highlighting current research, and a poster session presenting research projects from diverse subfields.

    There will also be a special panel discussion, "Generation Tech: Tapping NYC's Science & Engineering Talent," moderated by Seth Pinsky, President of the NYC Economic Development Corp, and featuring representatives of the new engineering and applied science institutions that are being created in the city.
