The Gordon Research Seminar on Granular & Granular-Fluid Flow is an unique opportunity for graduate students, postdocs, and other junior scientists to freely exchange ideas and present their research. It is a valuable opportunity to network and build relationships with peers. Sessions will focus on both research and professional development. The professional development resources will include an informal career development roundtable session with senior experts for a detailed insight into career prospects in both academics and industry; a lecture presented by Prof. Harry Swinney, titled "Tips on Writing Papers That Will Be Read"; and poster sessions.
The meeting aims to highlight major developments at the interface of research and application.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: granular rheology, size-dependence, intermittency and failure, particle-centric and coarse-grain models, the application of statistical mechanics in granular media, and new experimental, computational and theoretical techniques.
