IO Day is one-day workshop in September at NYU that brings together people from the New York area schools (in whatever radius that includes Philadelphia and New Haven).

We provide coffee and lunch. Participants are responsible for their other arrangements.

We are grateful to NERA for graciously providing financial support for the workshop.

We send out email news regarding IO Day based on a list of addresses that we compiled by consulting faculty from various New York area schools. If you would like to be added or removed from that list, please let us know. Please forward the information to anyone in the area who you think will be interested.

For more information, please contact Maher Said ( or Chris Conlon (
