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.

6th Northeastern Granular Materials Workshop:

The 6th Northeastern Granular Materials Workshop (NEGW) will be held at Brandeis University on May 30th, 2008. The talks and poster sessions will take place in the Lemberg Academic Center, Thomas Lee Lecture Hall. 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).
