Brown School of Engineering Hosts NEW.Mech Workshop

The Brown University School of Engineering is hosting the 2012 New England Workshop on the Mechanics of Materials and Structures on November 3, 2012, at the Granoff Center.

The one-day workshop aims to bring together the New England Mechanics community with an interest in exploring new directions on the mechanics of materials and structures and sharing the latest advancements in the field. The workshop is free of charge, and is focused primarily around students (graduate and undergraduate) and postdocs. The previous two years have seen tremendous enthusiasm and excitement from the scientific community and Brown is excited to be this year’s host.

The workshop will consist of four plenary invited talks and a number of contributed short talks. There will also be a poster competition, and the workshop will include a new component, the “Gallery of Mechanics”. This event will include movies that display research in the New England mechanics community. There will be awards for the top three entries.

The workshop is being organized locally by Christian Franck and Shreyas Mandre, assistant professors of engineering at Brown.
