This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
As one of the most abundant materials in nature, granular matter has been extensively studied in multiple disciplines of science and engineering. The underlying physics revealed in the study of granular matter have transformed our understanding of particulate systems across many scales. In particular, the physical principles governing the rich dynamics of granular matter have been greatly extended in recent years and broadly applied to diverse particulate systems ranging from colloidal suspensions, to biological fluids, and to planetary bodies. Within this exciting context, the tenth GRC on granular matter aims to provide a unique platform for researchers in different fields to interact and discuss cutting-edge developments and novel applications of granular physics at different scales. Invited talks and posters from researchers in chemical, civil and mechanical engineering, physics, applied mathematics, earth and planetary sciences as well as engineers in industries are solicited to diversify the attendees of the meeting and stimulate open discussions on the new progress of granular research across scales.
