The site for the 54th ECSC meeting was March 31st-April 1st and was hosted by Wagner College on Staten Island
The college is located on a wooded, hilltop site on Staten Island, a borough of New York City. The campus is convenient by ferry and auto to Manhatten and commands an outstanding view of New York City, the Verrazano Narrows Bridge and the Manhatten skyline.
The goal of the conference is to give undergraduate science students a forum for the presentation of their original research. The conference provides an excellent opportunity for students and faculty from many institutions to interact and exchange information and ideas. Everyone enjoys the experience.
