AMSGNY Meetings

Program for Winter Meeting--Funny Music

The winter meeting will take place on January 24th at Columbia University. Note the slightly earlier start time.

It will be held in room 622 Dodge, which is where we have met in past gatherings at Columbia.

You will need to enter from College Walk, up the steps, to the left, into the main door of Dodge, which is actually on the third floor above campus level. There will be student from Columbia in the lobby to let you in and to direct you to the right floor.
