CPBF Symposia at CUNY

In addition to the seminar series, CPBF holds 2-3 symposia events each semester at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York City. These symposia are all-day events and coordinated with the Initiative for the Theoretical Sciences at CUNY. Participation is lively and interactive, with the audience drawn largely from researchers, postdocs, graduate students and faculty based at various institutions in New York City and the Tri-State area. 

Curated by members of the symposia committee, the symposia series highlights major research activities of the Center: guest speakers are invited to give a foundational overview, to engage those in the audience less familiar with the topic, before sharing their expertise in the frontier of research. 

Current committee members are:

  • Trevor Grand Pre
  • Caroline Holmes
  • Kamesh Krishnamurthy
  • Christopher Lynn
  • Matthew Rosenberg
  • Luca Di Carlo
  • Junang Li
  • Francesca Mignacco
  • Zoe Aridor
  • Rahul Munshi
  • Shana Elbaum-Garfinkle
  • David Schwab, CUNY
