Some quick reminders for our 2017 conference at the University of Rochester:
1- The block reservations at our two hotels expire in the next day or two (depending on the hotel). If you have not yet made your reservation, please do so ASAP. Both hotels want to work with us, but can't guarantee availability or pricing after the blocks are released.
2- For our graduate student presenters, if you would like your paper to be considered for our annual grad student prize ($$$), you will need to send us your paper by 5pm EST on October 13th. Please ONLY send presentation-ready papers (ie: no seminar papers that you still intend to cut down). The winning paper will be announced at the conference luncheon on Saturday the 21st. Papers for prize consideration should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
3- For those who have not yet registered, please do so ASAP. We need an accurate headcount to give to the caterers for the luncheon.
4- A few folks have e-mailed to ask about paper length. Papers at NYCEA should be about 15 minutes (7 to 8 pages) in length. This is to ensure time for lively discussion at the end of each panel.
