The Northeastern Granular Materials Workshop (NEGW) is designed to bring researchers and students in the North East (New England, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania) together to discuss their work on granular materials and explore collaborations. The workshop features pedagogical talks, short contributed talks, and poster sessions.

The 5th Northeastern Granular Materials Workshop (NEGW) will be held at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst on June 1, 2007.
