3. On or before June 19th: Please submit itemized receipt(s) (an itinerary will not suffice) to Nicola O’Shea (nicolaoshea [at] fas.harvard.edu) on or before June 19th. You may also bring your receipt(s) to the ComSciCon workshop on either the 18th or 19th of June to complete the reimbursement process in person.
