2022 Borns Symposium

 
Dear CCI colleagues,
 
We received many responses to the survey of graduate students about how to do the Borns Symposium this year. The committee crafted the following plan based on majority opinion:
 
1. The only requirement CCI students need to fulfill in order to maintain their affiliation is to submit the mini-paper. If you haven’t done that yet, please do so now.
 
2. Purely optionally, if any students want to present their paper in the usual Borns format (12 min plus Q&A), we will hold short hybrid sessions on March 10 and 11. Presenters can choose live or virtual mode to present. Attendees can come live or watch online. If you want to present on March 10-11, please let me know by the end of this week.
 
3. The 50th Anniversary will be held live on November 18 (COVID willing) and will include the three keynotes originally scheduled for the Borns Symposium (Alumna: Kimberley Miner; Smith: Jim Roscoe; Churchill: Kurt Rademaker).
 
Best wishes,
Dan
