NEW.Mech 2014

October 18, 2014

NEW.Mech is a one-day workshop that aims to bring together the New England Mechanics community with an interest in exploring new directions on the mechanics of materials and structures and share the latest advancements in the field.

The workshop will be located at the University of Massachusetts, in the Happy Valley, on October 18, 2014 in Room 119 of Engineering Lab II.

Confirmed speakers are

  • Al Crosby (UMass Amherst)
  • Krystyn Van Vliet (MIT)
  • Eric Dufresne (Yale)

As in other other years, there will be a poster session, among which a subset will be chosen for short (3 minute) talks with limited time for questions. In addition, there will be a “Gallery of Mechanics” to showcase the most visually striking movies and images from your research. Prizes will be presented for the top three images, as determined by a panel of of faculty members (here for more details).

A limited number of spaces will be available (at no cost) on buses providing round-trip transportation to/from 77 Mass Ave. in Cambridge, but seating is first-come-first-served, so please register and reserve a space on the bus now.
