Welcome to the 8th Annual NEW.Mech!
NEW.Mech is a one-day workshop that aims to bring together the New England Mechanics community with an interest in exploring new research directions in the mechanics of materials and structures, and provides an opportunity to share the latest advancements in the field.
We are excited to be hosting the New.Mech at MIT on October 14th, 2017. This year we will have extended talks from guest speakers, selected short talks, and two digital electronic-poster sessions in which you can interactively present your work on large-format flat panel HD display screens.
Our confirmed invited speakers are:
Huajian Gao – Professor of Engineering, Brown University
Talk Title: Mechanics of cell interaction with low-dimensional nanomaterials
John W. Hutchinson – Professor of Engineering, Harvard University
Talk Title: Shell buckling—the old and the new
Subra Suresh – President-Designate, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore & Vannevar Bush Professor of Engineering Emeritus, MIT
Talk Title: Cell mechanics and human diseases
Franz-Josef Ulm – Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering, MIT
Talk Title: Urban physics: Is Boston a liquid or a solid? A quantitative mechanics approach to cities' sustainability and resilience
Anyone submitting a teaser talk and/or e-poster must register and submit talk info by October 4. We will be making decisions on teaser talk and e-poster submissions shortly thereafter, with instructions to follow for those whose were are accepted.
To everyone else, the general registration deadline is October 11.
