In addition to the main conference programming Friday, Saturday and Sunday NECSS will offer educational (and fun!) workshops on Thursday July 11. Two concurrent tracks will be offered, comprised of four workshops each. Space is strictly limited and these workshops WILL sell out!

Main conference registration is required to register for workshops.


  • Date: Thursday July 11
  • Time: 10:00AM – 05:00PM (lunch from 12:45PM – 2:15PM on your own)
  • Location: 9th floor of the FIT Feldman Center, located on 27th Street between 7th and 8th Ave. Enter through the main entrance under the blue arch.
