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.

7th Northeastern Granular Materials Workshop:

The 7th Northeastern Granular Materials Workshop (NEGW) will be held at Yale University on June 12th, 2009. The talks and poster sessions will take place in Becton Center Auditorium. Breakfast, lunch, and refreshments will be served. The workshop will include four longer pedagogical talks, approximately six contributed talks, and a poster session. The workshop will begin with breakfast and registration from 9:00 - 10:00 AM (with the first talk starting at 10:00 AM) and end around 4:30 PM. This year's Workshop follows the successful traditions of the first five workshops held at Clark University (2003), Yale University (2004), Wesleyan University (2005), City College of New York (2006), University of Massachusetts, Amherst (2007), Brandeis University (2008).

Invited speakers

Contributed Talks:

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 with a maximum of one talk per group. The remaining submissions will be presented during the poster sessions. Titles and abstracts can be submitted online. 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 online.
