2nd New England/New York Area Granular Materials Workshop
Date:  June 3, 2004

The 2nd New England/New York area Granular Materials workshop will be held at Yale University on June 3, 2004.  The talks will take place in Davies Auditorium in the basement of Becton Laboratory with food and refreshments served in the adjacent Becton Faculty Lounge.  The workshop will include four 30-minute invited talks, approximately six 15-minute contributed talks, and poster sessions.  The workshop will begin with breakfast from 9:15-10AM (with the first talk starting at 10AM) and end around 4:30PM.  This year's Workshop follows the successful 1st Granular Materials Workshop held last year at Clark University organized by Arshad Kudrolli (Clark Univ.), Narayanan Menon (UMass-Amherst), and Mark Shattuck (CCNY).

Invited Speakers:

        Hernan Makse, City College of New York
        Arshad Kudrolli, Clark University
        Martin Bazant, MIT 

        Thomas Halsey, Exxon-Mobil

We invite you to submit titles and abstracts for the 15-minute contributed talks and poster sessions.  Contributed talks that complement the invited talks will receive first priority.  The remaining submissions will be presented during the poster sessions.  Titles and abstracts can be submitted online by following the link below. Decisions concerning contributed talks will be made approximately one week before the workshop.  A list of participants and titles and abstracts of invited talks and contributed talks and posters can be viewed by following this link.

All participants must register before May 28, 2004 so that we can accurately estimate food orders.
